Tag Keeps on Giving - Free .svg Download

     I have a Christmas tag SWAP due this month. As usual we have a required paper collection to use: "Christmas Wishes" by Bella Blvd. I designed this tag for the SWAP and asked my husband, "How do you like it?". His evaluation: the tag is going to be worth more than the gift. Too much work for a tag, yadda, yadda, yadda. I decided to make the tag reusable. I used the arc option on the Silhouette software to create tabs under which the "to/from" card can be slid.
     I am including an .svg file that will cut the tag base, the two trapezoids, the hole reinforcer, and the panel with the tabs to hold the "to/from" card. Everything else can easily be cut on the trimmer. 
     This is the first project I was able to use the Silhouette PixScan mat for. I stamped 25 "James - Deck the Halls" stamps using my MISTI and cut them out on the PixScan. The best part about it is that I have 25 stamps cut out and everyone of them is an original stamp.
