Holiday Gift Tags

Happy December everyone! I can't believe that it's less than three weeks until Christmas. I feel like there's a million things to do during this time of the year and not enough time to do them. I did squeeze in some time to work on my December Daily book (which is more of a holiday book this year because I'm doing Project Life still), but I haven't gotten that far yet. Hopefully, I can share my progress and my thought process about it on my blog next week.

For now though, I'm blogging about some gift tags I made. Christmastime is one of the only times I make cards and gift tags (the other time being birthday occasions) - they're not my forte, but I find them fun to make every once in a while. In my excitement about designing my new holiday products, I decided to whip up some gift tags...I actually made these weeks ago but didn't get around to photographing them until yesterday.

Holiday Gift Tag #1
The Nutcracker ballet inspired this first tag...I watched the Nutcracker for the very first time last year and thought it was magical. I think it would be really cute to give someone tickets to the Nutcracker by presenting them the ticket and a little Nutcracker tag in a paper bag :)
Supplies: Christmas Cut-outs I, Christmas Cut-outs II, Holiday Filler Cards, Cherry Divine Twine, Whisker Graphics little bitty bag, washi tape, shipping tag

Holiday Gift Tag #2
I misted the tag with Silver Mister Huey and a chevron mask before layering my printable cut-outs and circle tag. It was super quick to make!

Holiday Tag #3
This was also another easy-to-make tag. After adhering everything, I added glossy accents on top of some of the confetti on the printable and the wood veneer asterisk.

Next on my list to tackle - Christmas cards! I have a growing list of cards to make...wish me luck! Happy Wednesday everyone :)

  8. These tags are so so cute! Love them a lot and they're definitely going on my pinterest!

  9. Oh, those are amazing! I love them and I'm so going to steal the idea. Fiance's family and my mom get Amazon vouchers and now I know how to make that still look personal. Already ordered the craft supplies needed, bought all your christmas goodies, will shamelessly copy the project and put the voucher codes on the back of the tags.
    Thanks for the inspiration and not going to look lame at Christmas!
