CTMH Taste of Summer Gift Bag Tags - May Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the May Joyful Stars Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from my dear friend Lori's blog, than you are on the right track.
As I sat looking at my new CTMH Taste of Summer paper, I happened to glance across the table at my new grab bag goodie pile.  As many of you know, last month CTMH offered a different grab bag every day during April.  I purchased only one, and although it was a great value, I am not the gambling type.  One of the items that came in my grab bag, and every single other grab bag that I have seen photos of, were these little Christmas gift bag set.  I have seen people with these gift bags coming in abundance, much to their dismay.  I mean, it is Spring, and Christmas gift bags are the last thing on our minds, right?  Well, back to my gazing across the table...the aha! moment.  The CTMH Taste of Summer papers would make the perfect little tags to accompany those former "Christmas" gift bags.  I stamped the little sayings, oranges and strawberries from the Taste of Summer Stamp Set.  The tags themselves, along with the flowers and leaves were all cut using the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  Remember that both the Taste of Summer paper and stamp set are only available during the month of May, and while supplies last.
You can go ahead and thank me now for helping you repurpose that mountain of Christmas gift bags that was making you want to scream!  Just kidding!!!
I am sure you loved them before my aha! moment lol!
I hope you like them :)
