Morning sweet peeps! Today I’m back with some adorable tags I plan on placing on some of this year’s gifts. I borrowed the tag template from Sharon Johnson. She created a tag set years ago that I still adore to this day. I found Graphic 45′s Twas the Night Before Christmas ideal for this set. No stamps needed as the paper already comes with adorable gift tags. A little snipping and I had this set put together in about an hour. The tag holder template contains four pockets. I made two tags for each pocket. For the tag holder, I used some old stash of Stampin’Up! Garden Green card stock, I think the red card stock used on the tags is Real Red. The roses and leaves were made with Christmas mulberry paper.
Again, I used all three paper pads from Graphic 45′s Twas the Night Before Christmas for the tags. I made four small tags shown here. I used Spellbinders small mega ovals, Rose Creations dies for the roses and Create-A-Rose for the leaves (I love the leaves in Create-A-Rose, perfect size for these smaller roses). Why use Rose Creations dies instead of Create-A-Rose? I’m limited with the Create-A-Rose dies and it does take a bit longer to put together all the individual petals. With Rose Creations, I can easily make five different size roses and putting them together is a bit faster.
These tags are larger. The paper pad comes with two sizes for the clocks. I used the smaller clocks on the smaller tags, the larger clocks on these tags. I adhered Kaisercraft Crystals to the center of the clocks. May Arts 1/4″ silk ribbon is perfect for these small bows that I made using the original Bow Easy. I attached the bows with Glue Dots, so easy to work with and no drying time.
This close up pic better illustrates the clocks’ size, as well as the crystals in the centers. The bows each have three loops for fullness. I used the two smallest Rose Creations dies to make the roses from the Christmas mulberry paper I have in my store, as well as the rose leaves.
I’m providing pictures of the four panels of the gift tag holder so that you have a closer view of the details. Please feel free to copy this design if you’d like. If you blog/post it anywhere, I’d appreciate a link back to this post. :-).
If you have circle punches, they are perfect for punching out the clocks and background paper. I used Stampin’Up! punches that I’ve kept from “back in the day” . . . are they still selling them?
I love the candy stripe borders running along each panel, they tie in so well with the theme . . . Graphic 45 truly coordinates their papers well!
I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit, I have some Christmas note cards to share with you soon made from the same Graphic 45 paper collection. They are perfect for presenting gifts to dear family and friends alike.
