Ho, Ho, Ho! My next few blog posts are going to be all about Christmas.. ’cause you know.. ’tis the season for us crafters!! I’m going to chat with you about Christmas tags. I’ve done up a few and absolutely love them … and the best part? super easy! If you like the look of home made items, then this is a great way to show off some of your creativity and helps get you in the spirit! So grab a hot chocolate, get cozy and hope you enjoy today’s post 🙂
I love everything home made and I feel Christmas is a great way to showcase our talent. There are so many touches we can put to the season, from making our own Christmas cards to wrapping paper, to tags. Today, I’m going to show three different tags that I made. So quick and easy to do. All I used as the background was normal tags that Lori sells in her store. I picked out my paper and some embellishments and away I went.
I first traced the tag onto the paper and then cut it and adhered it. For these penguin tags, I bought the fake snow that Lori sells in her store to give the tag a bit of a 3d look to it and I love how the snow has a little bit of sparkle to it. Then I adhered the felt penguins and tree once the snow dried. Added ribbon to the top, stamped the “to/from” and voila! A cute tag to add to a gift.
Next, I did up some snowflake tags. Same idea, traced the tag onto the paper I picked out, then got busy with the embellishments. Again, I love using even non scrapbook related items on my scrappy stuff. I picked up the frosted branch at Dollarama, along with the berries. Here’s how it turned out.
Lastly, I made my favorite.. vintage. I wanted to use deep, rich colors for these tags. The gold sparkly leaves were from Dollarama and the poinsetta and the angels are charms. When completed, these tags reminded me of when I was a little girl at Christmas with all the beautiful classic colors of Christmas.
I had a lot of fun making these tags and they totally got me in the spirit of Christmas… enough so, I even started pulling out the decorations! lol 😉 I hope this post adds a little inspiration to your Christmas creativity.
My next post, I’ll show a few ornaments and a couple of the ones too, with a spin, that we did for the make n take at the last crop. Till then, happy creating!!
