Frilly & Funkie Challenge/Anything But A Card

Good morning, it is time for another Frill & Funkie challenge, this week Sue has brought us a fun challenge.  Here are the details in her words.....
"It's time to let your imagination run wild, you could be thinking of a 3D project, an altered item or keeping it simple with a tag but there is a twist! You must include somewhere to hide something, this could be a flap, an envelope, a pocket or even a gift box with something inside! Have fun!"
Of course I went with a tag, I am wanting to keep up with Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas; I am having such a blast playing along!  She also having a give away on her
I have used a library card for the main focal point of my tag, covering it with TH distressed tattered rose crackled paint and then a spritz of Mr Huey's mist.  I stitched the library card to my base, added the glittered snowflakes, and the seam binding ribbon tied with my glittered pink jingle bells....swoooon!  I actually made these myself; spray painted them and then covered with glitter....totally luv!  I cannot wait to see what you create and what your twist will fun....enjoy!
