Hello Everyone! The Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Design Team is joining with the talented Magnolia-licious Highlites Design Team for their monthly blog hop. I'm so excited to be apart of this blog hop and I know that you are going to enjoy it as well! If you are coming from the amazing Mindy Baxter's Blog you are on the right track. If not, please go back to the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog to start the blog hop and get all the Important Details!
The theme for this blog hop is to make an Interative Holiday Tag. . . A tag that does something, card tag, tag that pops up, etc! How fun is that that! All you need to do is to use a MAGNOLIA IMAGE on your tag. Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of a $50.00 Gift Certificate from Magnolia-licious!
But wait! Not only is this a blog hop, it is also a Scavenger Hunt!! As you hop along, look for candy canes in the first, main photo on each blog. Email your candy cane total to Suzanne Dean - firstname.lastname@example.org with "Candy Cane" in the subject line. You have until December 29th to enter. The winner of the Scavenger Hunt will receive a $50.00 Gift Certificate from Magnolia-licious!
For the front of my tag, I used Digi Design Papers from MyGrafico - Shery K Designs Christmas 5 Collection and Echo Park Seasons Greetings Collection. Tilda with Little Rudolf, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and was colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. Doodlebug Flock was added to Tilda's Santa Hat and Rudolf's tummy, ears and antlers. The Tree Ribbon is from Target's Dollar Section. I made the Poinsettias using Marianne Creations Small Poinsettia Die. The Gold Dew Drops in the center of the poinsettias and on the corners of the tag are from Stamping Bella. The Roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The Gold Berries are from Joann Craft and Fabric Store. "For a dear friend" was computer generated. The Red Ribbon is from my stash.
For the interactive part of my tag, I made a slider. I found the instructions on how to make it HERE. I adjusted the size to be a 5 inch square. I printed the frames using Echo Park Digi Dashes Through the Snow Element Pack 1. The Holly was punched using a small punch from my stash. The Red Berries are Red Jewel Dazzles from Hot Off The Press.
Also, when the front of the tag is opened, a honeycomb tree is in the inside. I used Inky Antics Ornament Birdy Stamp Set and Red and Green Honeycomb Paper Pads. The Striped Ribbon is from Target's Dollar Section. The Label was printed using Echo Park All I Want For Christmas Element Pack 2. The Ornaments and Gift are stickers that I found at Walmart.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you are inspired to make an interactive tag with us! Your next stop on the blog hop is the talented Ruby Montes.
Before I close, I want to invite you to stop by Magnolia-licious to see the colored images for the new A Christmas Story Collection and The Nativity Collection and more! They look wonderful and are so helpful in determining which images to get. You don't have to look through the Magnolia watermark. Also, what a great reference when you get stuck coloring images and need a little help! I just love it and I think you will too!

Have a wonderful day!
