MFT October Shop & Hop!

Hey all! Welcome to the MFT October Blog Hop & Shop! You should have arrived here via Susan's blog, but if you've just stumbled upon this post, you'll want to start back at the beginning on the MFT blog.

For my project I decided to get a jump on a couple of Christmas gifts. Ever since I saw the felt tags that Leigh made for some friends at CHA, I've been wanting to make some. When I saw Ballet Millie, I knew that I'd be making bag tags for my daughter's ballet teachers.
For the front I used Ballet Millie and paper pieced her tutu and bow. I cut the pink felt from the Banana Split collection and used the new Polka Dot Greetings die to make my opening.
I cut some strips using the Small Scallop Border Die and white felt from the Necessary Neutrals collection. The black felt is from the same felt pack and was cut the same as the pink front piece. I used the Wendy Alphabet to stamp out the ballet teachers names.
I embellished both sides of the tags with felt flowers cut with both the Perfect Petal Trio die and the Flower Trio & Leaf Trio die. I also used buttons from the Chocolate Kiss Scoop.


Remember that all the new stamps and Die-Namics dies are now available in the MFT store right HERE. Your next stop along the hop is to my friend and fellow canuck Julie. She's got some mad stamping skills and I know her project will WOW you!

Before you go....don't forget to leave comments on the blogs along the way. One of the hoppers has a MFT gift certificate to give away - but we're not telling you who. The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning! Have a great night and thanks for hopping by!
