I don't know what exactly possessed me, but I went on a Christmas tag binge!! My daughter in Nashville loves tags for her presents, and seeing as a challenge at CAS-ual Fridays last year was my first attempt at making tags, I thought I'd start early and make lots:)!! Like Noah's Ark, there are two of every kind(I'm only showing you two...I made a bunch of each:)!!)...most of them you will be able to figure out how to make...some things I'll explain. I made them easy and fast, reading comments last year that tags are thrown away, so not to spend too much time on them, but wanted something that didn't LOOK like it only took a couple minutes to make:)!!...Here they are...
Simon Says Stamp Medium Tags for all these tags. These first ones, I made longer by letting the die go part way through my Big Shot, then turning the paper around and extending the space, then taking it part way through the other side of the die. The stripes were made using the striped stamp from the Simon Says Stamp Tag Sayings stamp set. The middle circles are from SSS Circles for the Holidays.
Did the same as above, with the cut out hearts, but added another sentiment on glittery striped paper from Michael's
On these last two, I extended the "LOVE" tag and made it a little longer. The stripes are made using the striped stamp from the Tag Sayings stamp set, like those above, then die cutting with Papertrey Ink letter dies. Two stamped stripes will make the 4 letters...super easy. Love that the letters are long and thin. Encased the striped letters in a green tag. The "JOY" is done in semi shiny gold paper, encased in red paper.
All the tags have a back on them...
the stamps ALSO from the SSS Tag Sayings set. More to follow in November, I'm sure:)!! Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
Love the Christmas colors!
See you next time!
I am so glad everyone is starting their Christmas cards and tags! I love the tags you have created and you gave us such a great lineup of tags. I agree that we should keep them simple as most people end up throwing them away. But when they are so cute and adorable - I don't know how anyone could not want to keep them.ReplyDelete
Love your tags! I am always looking for ideas. I give so many away to family & friends to use on Christmas gifts. I make a bunch before Christmas but then to extend the Christmas season a bit for myself (& relax and enjoy!), I make a bunch after Christmas using my scraps of Christmas paper - these end up being most of the those that I give away before the next Christmas.ReplyDelete
These are some great tags. Thanks for sharing all your ideas! Love them!ReplyDelete
These tags are spectacular!!!!ReplyDelete
These are so cute. It is hard to make something only to have it tossed in the trash! These may be keepers.ReplyDelete
Wow! That is a LOT of gorgeous tags.ReplyDelete
Wow - you were really on a roll with the tags. They are all so festive and fun. I've made 3x3 cards as gift sets. You make me want to make tags :)ReplyDelete
