Wrapped some Christmas presents and need more tags.

My hubby gave me an early Christmas present, a miroco Milk Frother, he bought on amazon. It warms up milk/cream, froths to make a latte, mixes & warms up hot chocolate by adding powder with milk and does cold frothing for frappes (not tried this option yet). I broke/cracked 2 lids on the Keurig frother which is part of our Keurig coffee maker. Stores sell replacements of the metal container with lid and online you can get the lid replacements but they are expensive either way and the lids are so fragile. The lid I currently have does work. I like the new frother for the way it stirs/mixes the hot chocolate with the milk and the temperature. I like the frother for the way it froths to make lattes.


Used Simon doodlebug stamp/die to make this Christmas Tag. Colored. I could not resist adding a Santa cup of hot chocolate with mini marshmallows (that is part of the stamp/die set) to this tag.
