I made lots of last minute Christmas gift tags today. I checked my wrapping paper first to match my colors. I’ll be wrapping presents tomorrow and I’ll have lots of tags to choose from!! I could have made these tags for hours; I was having so much fun and I kept thinking of new ideas. I finally just had to stop!! I seriously have to look into a crafter’s anonymous group to join.
I thought I would share a few them with you in case you needed to make some last minute tags too!
These are the most involved tags I made. I cut these Real Red and Gumball Green cardstock with the Two Tags Bigz Die. The great thing about this die is you can cut about four pieces at a time. The stocking on the left are from the Owl Occasions stamp set, the reindeer are from the Joyous Celebrations set and the tree, the candy cane and gingerbread man are from the Scentsational Seasons set, cut out with the matching framelits dies.
The rick rack is cut from the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die, and I added Dazzling Details glitter glue to the cut outs. I added a Red Glimmer Paper heart punched from the Owl Builder punch to the stocking tag. I colored a rhinestone with a red sharpie marker to give the reindeer a Rudolf nose.
I used the Tag punch to make these basic tags. Rudolf, 25 and the Christmas trees were stamped from the Joyous Celebrations stamp set and punched out with the Postage Stamp punch.
I added a rhinestone on the star and red Dazzling Diamonds glitter glue ‘Christmas balls’ on the trees.
This time I used a small punched circle of Red Glimmer Paper for Rudolf’s nose.
And who knew that the circle punches from the Cupcake Builder punch is just the right size to add Glimmer Paper to dress up this December 25 tag.
The ornament and trees here are punched out using the Merry Minis punches. To create the tags with the peek-a-boo circle, first punch a 3/4″ circle from the paper then punch around it with the tag punch and back it with a contrasting tag punch, then center your tree or ornament in the middle. I love this Silver Glimmer Paper tag.
The Scentsational Season gingerbread man and Christmas tree actually open like a card.
To create this little card fold your card stock in half and place your framelit over the fold. I only used Whisper White cardstock for this, as it is lighter weight than the other cardstocks and the framelits are intended to just cut through one piece of paper, so be careful if you try this. Then stamp the gingerman or tree, cut them out and glue to the front of the folded shape.
His Red Glimmer paper bowtie is made with two hearts from the Owl Builder punch, with a small circle punch connecting them into a bow. I discovered that I could place the points of the hearts on a glue dot, then wrap the glue dot around the points and add the circle onto the wrapped glue dot. After assembling the bowtie on the glue dot, it was easy to place onto the cute little guy.
I added just a couple of Red Glimmer paper punched circles onto the tree for fun and a Glimmer paper star to the top.
It’s amazing how easy it is to create this little glittery wreath tag. Punch a 3/4″ circle in the Silver Glimmer paper, then punch around the circle with the 1-1/4″ scallop circle. The bow is made the same way as the gingerbread man’s bowtie. To adhere to the bowtie to the glittery wreath, use multipurpose liquid glue to assure good sticking power!
I hope you enjoyed these fun tags and I hope my family likes them too!!
Merry Christmas! Julie
