Hello crafters, Sue here with a quick and simple tag for your last minute holiday preparations. At this point of the month I'm done making Christmas cards and am focused on making tags to add to all my Christmas gifts and I want the tags to be quick and easy to make because it is a busy time of the year!
I started off my choosing a patterned paper from the Memory Box Dashing Holiday Paper Pad, my coloured card stock and glitter paper. No inking today to make the tag building go quicker. Choosing patterned paper adds visual interest and glitter paper adds texture. A time saver.
To create a glow behind the windows of the townhouse I placed the die cut house on some scrap yellow card stock, traced around it and cut along the inside of the lines. I swiped a shimmer pen across the paper to add sparkle and adhered it to the back of the townhouse.
After assembling my tag I stamped the sentiment with black ink and die cut the word Joy.
To make the tag extra festive I added a couple of bells along with ribbon and twine.
I hope this inspires you to make your own Christmas tags, they add an extra special touch to the gifts you give friends and loved ones.
Have a Merry Christmas everyone and see you in January!
