25 Days of Christmas Tags~Day 15

Hello!

Welcome to Day 15 of 25 Days of Christmas Tags with Tracey McNeely, featuring STAMPlorations as our guest and fabulous sponsor! I'm especially delighted to be joining in as part of the STAMPlorations design team.


As you know, Shery offers a wide range of tags for our 'tag-making' needs, but she also offers a wonderful assortment of CUTplorations dies that can 'stand alone' as tags, simply by cutting them from pattern paper and stacking them to whatever thickness you want with heavy-weight cardstock. Mine are three layers of cardstock + the patterned paper.  

Tags don't 'have' to be on tags to be tags, right? Right!! Especially when time is at a premium, the bigger CUTplorations dies make for delightful little additions to a gift! 

You can use any larger dies you have on hand, but for my tags (which could also serve as ornaments once detached from the gift) I've used: Christmas Angel, Nativity, Typografia: Miracle of Christmas, Tags #1. The paper: Kaisercraft Christmas Edition


A more 'traditional' tag...


How about a 'wintry' Christmas Angel tag or perhaps a sparkly gift tag (Gift Builder #1) or even a plaid Merry Christmas tag? Yes, please! 


Simple? Absolutely? Cheating (using patterned paper)? I don't think so!  Anything we create, as long as it's infused with joy, is perfectly okay in my books!  Plus, I think these are rather sweet! I had to hold myself back from making a host of angels; wouldn't they make a beautiful banner, using different patterned papers..or even an Advent calendar...hmmmm?

I love the vintage look! So great!

Amanda said...

Spent the last little while shopping because of your gorgeous tags! Would love to know where the Merry Christmas die you used is from as I absolutely love the styling of it. The angel and nativity and sentiment are all now on my list too. You knocked this out of the park for me.

Wow! Wonderful tags!!!

Love what you created!

Teresa Doyle said...

Oh my, Carol, these are precious! You are so right...A tag does not need to be in a standard tag shape to be a tag and this is a great reminder to us all of that fact.
OMG these are sweet! You are awesome at this! TFS.

Joyce said...

So much gorgeousness. You are so smart to make those larger die cuts into quick tags. Must think how I can do that next time.

manger scene to make little tags.

This is a fabulous idea! I love patterned paper and I have a stash of it (don't we all), and this would be a huge timesaver. I love the nativity scene and the plaid Merry Christmas you made. Thanks for the inspiration!
