Do Not Open Until Christmas
written 12/17/2015

This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to make your tag unique by using your own choice of tube and scrap kit. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use the same supplies that I have used.

Supplies Used :

Tube by Elias Chatzoudis. The tube is called Merry Christmas. You can get Elias's tubes at http://www.eliasartshop.com/

Scrapkit is a freebie by me. You can get the kit at http://tagsbytika.blogspot.com/2015/12/well-i-did-it.html

Mask of your choice. I am using a mask by me which you can get at http://tagsbytika.blogspot.com/2015/12/dont-open-till-christmas-blog-train.html

Template of your choice. I am using a template by me which you can get at http://tagsbytika.blogspot.com/2015/12/dont-open-till-christmas-blog-train.html
