Christmas Tags & A GiveAway!
Hello, I’m a procrastinator and it’s time for me to start making my Christmas Tags. Oh Deer!
Are you behind like I am? It’s not without fail because this happens every year. Although last year was probably the worst as I was making tags 2 days before Christmas…
I jumped in tonight and was excited to get started on my Christmas Tags because this year I love the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. This vintage loving girl was drawn to it the minute I saw it in the Holiday Catalog.
Quick and Easy to Create!
Over all the Christmas tags were quick and easy. Just a few layers of cardstock, Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper and vellum. The longest part of these tags will be the fussy cutting of the deer and Santa.
Each tag has 3 main parts and then the rest is layering of a few pieces of cardstock or designer paper.
Each tag measures 3 x 5 1/2. You are not able to see in these photos, but the bottom layer is a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, then the Music notes paper and then Vellum overlay. I used the Crumb Cake cardstock for stability.
Once you have your main pieces layered, I did a quick stitch across each one using a Gold Metallic Thread.
To finish the tags I layered them with a Tea Lace Doily and a sliver (that’s a 1/4″) of Red Glimmer Paper. Of course you can add a deer or a Santa. Both are sweet as they can be and not hard to fussy cut.
Lastly, I used the Oh, What Fun Photopolymer stamp set for the greetings on the tags.
It’s no secret this season -I’m in love with Vellum! The Winter Wonderland Vellum is stunning. I’ll be sharing a few more projects tomorrow with this amazing paper.
I hope by being less of a procrastinator I can inspire you to create your Christmas Tags this year. Not all of my Christmas Tags are fancy. I’m pretty sure last year it was a plain piece of cardstock with a whole punched at the top. I am pretty sure my kids were devastated by not having one of my special tags last year….
Last month I did a GiveAway around my birthday. It was SO amazing to read all the awesome comments on gratitude.
