Banner Tag
~Stamp Merry Christmas on Whisper White cardstock with Garden Green ink.  Cut out using the Banner Framelit.
~Cut out a Garden Green Banner using the same Framelit.  You will use just the outside Frame part.  Check the underside of your Framelit as this part usually gets stuck.
~IF you are leaving the box Clear OR using the Paper Inside the Box option-Glue your Tag on Now.  Put a large stamp block on top to apply pressure so the glue will stick.  You can also use either Tear & Tape or Fast Fuse to hold it onto the outside of the Acetate Box.
