Halloween Tags - Sizzix Alterations Halloween Sideorder

All of the Sizzix Sidekick Side Order dies this year have been such fun to create with. They made wonderful additions to other dies, or as you see here, they can make a terrific stand-alone tag. 
The Halloween Side Order die set comes with the skeleton, cat, monster, boo, and a small bat texture fade folder. Everything is sized to fit perfectly in the Sizzix Sidekick
To make these quick Halloween tags, it is simple enough to just use the tag that came with your Sidekick, but I decided to use another set of dies to make these tags and it is one of my favorite sets, the Labels. I truly think it should be one every paper crafter owns. 

I chose the ornate tag shape from the Labels set for the base, and the large shield shape to emboss. The shield made for a perfect frame for the Halloween Side Order shapes.
I colored several pieces of Distress Mixed Media Heavystock with Distress Inks for the tags and the shield shapes. Then I cut the various pieces for the Skeleton, Monster and Cat from plain Heavystock and then colored each piece once it was cut.
To finish them off, I punched a small hole in the top center of the ornate tag shape and tied some black twine through it.
These are very quick and fast to make and can be added to treat bags, made into cards, or added to a gift.
