Handmade Gift Tags

Here is the little pouch filled with Christmas gift tags that my stamp club got to make on Friday. First we stamped a medium sized cello bag with White Stazon and the Snow Flurries set. Then we adhered the bag to a piece of card stock cut to 8-1/2" x 4". (score the 8-1/2" length @ 2-1/2" and fold down for flap) Holes were punched in the back for the ribbon.


My super nice Mother-in-law loaned me her Sizzix machine with the tag die so I was able to cut out the assorted tags easily. I used all different shades of Christmas colors and we did tags ranging from elegant to cute. Some are embossed, others watercolored and paper pieced, but I think they all turned out really nice.

For the "cute set" we used that good ol' timer and soon to be retired guy ~ Frosty, Punch Pals, and the snowflake from All Through The Year set along with the Bold Snowflake jumbo wheel. I think my favorite from this group is the paper pieced tree tag.


For the more elegant set we used Holy Triptych
and Peaceful Wishes. I just love the images
from Holy Triptych...they look just gorgeous embossed in gold on the dark colors from the Rich Regal color family, don't they?


The Frosty, Snowflake & Peaceful Wishes tags they got to make 2 of each, so when finished they had the pouch filled with 14 tags. I'm sure they will come in handy when they wrap their gifts!
Today I am having my group Stampin' Up! Christmas gathering here. My upline, downline and sideline are all able to come...so we will have a fun afternoon doing a little stamping plus a card swap. I'll tell you more on that tomorrow. It sure is a busy time of year! Enjoy your day!

These are great. What a neat idea for a little holiday gift. I cannot decide which set is more fun. They are both great!

the tags are all great - and what a fantastic idea for a gift and to stamp onto the cello bag - I've never tried that.
