Day 4 - Gift Tags

So not exactly a Christmas Gift today, but you may well need some tags for these little gifts that you are making, and what better way to compliment your gifts than with some tags that will stand out from the rest. So today we are going to make

Gift Tags

So this is what I started with, an Olive Green, Real Red Scallop Tag (from sizzix) (cut from textured card) and a Scallop Tag cut from the patterned paper, from the I Wish Simply Scrappin Kit, some stamped images from the Old Fashioned Christmas Stamp Set and some ribbon and gold elastic. I coloured the images in using the Stampin' Write! markers and used some of the heat and stick and glitter to colour in the beard and white fluff of Santa's Jacket, just to bling it up a bit. To make my patterned paper go a bit further, I cut the patterned tag in half and used half on each of the coloured tags.

I then needed to make some Happy Christmas's to go on the tags, so one I stamped the image from Old Fashioned Christmas, and the second one I used an alphabet set Square Serif Mini Alphabet & Numbers and the punch which fits it exactly which is the 1/4" square punch.

I then needed to make something which read "To" and "From", and for this I used the Tags for all set, only inking up the To and From with markers and stamping it onto cardstock. I then cut this out using the 1 1/4" punch and matted it with the 1 3/8" punch, and finished it off with the ever popular scallop punch.

I cut out the images and stuck them onto the card as shown above. I finished them off by tying ribbon through the holes and finished one off with a piece of gold elastic. Below is a close up of the tags so that hopefully you can see the sparkle on them.

Hope these inspire you to make your own tags this year and I will be back tomorrow with Day 5 of 12 Days of Christmas... isn't it going quickly, glad I did some of my Christmas Shopping today, although I have loads more to do yet.

Take care all xx

I love that tag punch! I think it will have to go on my ever growing wish list. One day I will find a cheap hobby!
