More scrap tags

I've been playing around with trying to use of some bits and scraps of Christmas patterned paper that I have had for several years.  I love most of the patterns, but after having used them for cards, now there are only pieces that aren't really large enough for cards, but too big to throw away.  I mad a bunch of tags that I posted here with different pieced together backgrounds.  After making them, I still had some left and these are the tags I threw together using the last of the bits.  I still have about 6 pieces left, but they are large enough to actually be used on cards.
I just love this little snowman, and he is absolutely perfect for paper piecing with his hat and scarf.  And the piecing is perfect for using up little scraps!  I can't wait to use up those last paper pieces, be looking for cards using them soon.  But for now, I have eliminated a messy pile of scraps from my paper pile.

Very nice, each and every one! I am on a tag tear right now, myself! Tags are a great way to use up scraps and ugly papers that you look at and ask, "Why in the world did I buy this?" Tags allow you to embellish away the ugly! :D) Thanks for playing along at Shopping Our Stash!
