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
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?
