Fussy and Fancy DT Project - Banners or Tags

It's challenge time again over at Fussy and Fancy, this time we'd like to see "Banners or Tags".  I decided to make my Christmas gift tags as my DT project, to match my Scandi inspired wrapping scheme this year.
I used luggage labels from WH Smiths along with Papermania Home for Christmas papers, ribbon and bows.  I made a punched border with a Martha Stewart punch and die cut circles for the wooden embellishments to sit on, edging all the layers with Barn Door Distress Ink.  The wooden elements were free with a magazine, when I'd used all twelve of them up I raided my stash for wooden snowflakes to stick on instead.  Red pearls finish my tags off.
Here's how they look on the parcels, these ones are filled with crafty goodness for some of my crafting buddies!

I'm entering this project in the following challenges -
Divas by Design - #65 - use some red
The House That Stamps Built - #125 - holiday bags or tags
Anything Goes - #82 - traditional Christmas colours
Craft Room Challenge - tags
Creative Stamp Friends - #86 - Christmas packages
My Craft Spot - #79 - wrap it up
Crafty Ribbons - #34 - tags
Crimbo Crackers - #30 - wooden
