I love Christmas Tags! When I get in the Christmas mojo slump and I can't even craft I card, I turn to my good ole friend the tag. They are smaller, quick, easy and can be as simple or detailed as I want them to be. For some reason I do a lot less thinking when it comes to making a tag than I do when crafting a card. Anyways...I thought I would post a couple of tags that I made over Marisa's.
For the snowman tag. I started out with the new JilliBean Soup Kraft paper and added 2 strips of lacey ribbon. I picked up a while ago from Micheal's. I then added a Martha Stewart Doily. The center of the doily was created using the Schlosser Designs Circle-A-Thon stamp. I stamped the image in white on red cardstock and added some glittery yellow bling to make a pointsetta center and mounted that on green stamped with a circle outline for the Circle-A-Thon set, and then added both to Brown to make it pop off the doily.
For the red polka dot tag, I used up some American Crafts Details that I received 2-3 years ago for free. It was one of those buy a certain number of thickers and get a mini-detail pack for free. You know that I love my thickers and I love free, so I ended up with 4 packs of these suckers. I finally used up some of them. This was a quick and easy tag. I mounted the AC embelishment to scalloped cardstock, adhered that to a Martha Stewart Doily and attached it all to a hand cut tag. Super easy and I love how it turned out.
I know...I lot of explaination for 2 tags - ah I have wordy days every now and again.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
