Hi there blog friends. I have to admit that holiday preparations already have the best of me. By this point in the year I’ve normally made at least a handful of Christmas cards and tags, but it’s already a catch up race for me. No worries, it’s never too late right (as I think of the people who make holiday cards year round). Today I’m sharing a tag, it’s always a nice and unique finish to a gift and it doesn’t always follow the same constructs as making a card; anything goes. So I pulled out some trinkets, lace, ribbon and such and got to work.
I cut a tag from a rectangular piece of paper 3-1/2″ x 6-1/4″ and lopped off the top left and right edges; it is stamped with an Our Daily Bread Designs background called Christmas Tree Carol. Simple enough. I skirted the tag with a border Spellbinders™ Vintage Lace Accents, then layered with another skirting of lace and velvet ribbon (yum). After gathering a tuft of tulle I glued it along with a seam binding bow to the tag and topped it with a pearl pin laced with three ribbon flowers that came connected as a trim. Using Spellbinders™ Decorative Labels Eight, I stamped the small packages and sentiment from an Our Daily Bread Designs set called Perfect Gift and tucked it in behind the lace. I really mauled the hole I created at the top of the tag so I covered it with a dainty element from Spellbinders™ Venetian Accents.
One down – many, many more to go, lol!
