More Christmas Tags!

Hey friends!

So it seems like I am on a tag kick lately, but I am having so much fun! I wanted to change up the look from the last set and go brighter. (Speaking of last set-I am going to remake those beauties on Live with Prima for December...so stay tuned for the class info in a few days.) Sorry these photos look slightly crooked, I have no idea why except to say my photog skills need improvement...


I used Avery Manila tags as my base for all of them-covering them with a mix of book paper, patterned papers and solids. I also spent some time fussy cutting the deer out of the patterned papers...I love the images so I cut several...and then only used three. So I have more to use if I want to expand this set.

I used papers from Basic Grey and We R Memory Keepers. I used the Accu Cut machine from my LSS to cut some snowflakes and a darling little tree. They were cut from scrap chipboard. The flowers are all Prima as well as the leaves, along with the tiny type alphabet and red/clear crystals. All of the paper and tag edges were inked with Vintage photo Distress ink to tone down the bright colors...just a bit.




This first one is covered with old book paper and then I added patterned paper strips along the left side. I glued the deer at the bottom right of the tag, then added the circles and finished it off with flowers. I combined ribbon and bakers twine at the top and finished off the flower with crystals...



I covered this tag entirely with book paper, then added a punched edge to the bottom backed by a strip of red paper. The snowflakes were covered with glitter glass-a mix of silver and gold together-then topped with Wheatfields Glimmer mist to make the glitter look aged. The sentiment is from A Muse and it was pop dotted onto the front.


This next tage was also covered in old book paper, then I added a strip of patterned paper at the bottom. I punched out some circles using my Marvy punches, adhered and lopped off the side that was hanging over. I placed my deer over the circle, added little letters to the top of the and then my flowers with leaves. Add scraps of ribbon to the tag tops.....


I covered this guy with patterned paper, added a bit of book paper to the center and added my chipboard tree. Then I added the bling as ornaments and tied twine with ribbon at the top. Finished off with a cute little button. So easy!

I covered the tag with solid paper and added a banner down the center. I punched more circles and layered different sizes together. Then I placed my deer off to the right and finished with flowers.
This one is patterned paper with book paper added to the bottom 1/3 of the tag. I wrapped a ribbon around where the two papers meet and also wrapped bakers twine a few times below the ribbon. I covered the chipboard snowflake in glitter and added a super cute Jenni Bowlin button to the center. Then I added my sentiment from Tiny alpas over the twine...


Thank you for stopping by...I appreciate it and I hope you enjoyed tag segment -part two.
I shall return with more projects and the Live with Prima Tag class info.
