I have been thinking about getting myself organised for Christmas. It always seems to creep up on me and before you know it everything is a rush. I have often thought of making my own Christmas tags but not really got round to it before but to be honest they are so quick and easy I don't know why I haven't.
I created two types of tags. The first I used my circular punch and cut out circles of a pale blue card. Then I found a stash of glittery parcel toppers which I attached with some good old double sided tape! As a finishing touch I used a mini heart punch and tied some red and white candy striped string through it. Quite pleased with the outcome!
Next I found out my Christmas Tree shaped punch and some green card to have a go at a different style of tag. I cut the card 10cm x 4.5cm and then punched the tree at one end. After that, I folded these over and used some scraps of Christmas themed paper from my paper stash and sandwiched this between to create a Christmas Tree window.
Finally, I used a single hole punch to punch a hole in the top corner and tied some of the red and white candy striped string through this to complete the tags.
This has been a great way to used up those small pieces of card and paper that I often have left over so will definitely be keeping these in future for making other tags. Have a go with your own left overs and share your creations too,
Bye for now
