EZ Quick & Simple Christmas Tags

EZ. . .Quick and Simple, that is what I wanted to show this week. You can make a set of Christmas Gift tags in no time. I used the Cottage Cutz Tree, Wreath and Doily from the Elegant Collection. One sheet each of four colors of card stock(red, white and two greens), a holly edge punch, 1/8" hole punch, Red & green ribbon, red and green ink, sponge and Stickles.

The white card stock was cut at 3" x 6" and the shadow card stock were cut at 3 1/8" x 6 1/8" . Two tags I edged with a holly punch on the full right side of the tag and the second I edged on the left side and bottom. Inked the edges of the white with a sponge in red and green. Used a 1/8" hole punch to cut a ton of dots for berries, randomly scattered on the holly edge. Stickled the berries for a bit of twinkle. I cut 4 Cottage Cutz Elegant Shapes (one quick CUT) glued them on the white card stock at an angle with a little over hang (cut the over hang off). I needed to remember to leave space on the tag for the TO:/FROM:.

As you can see, five parts to each tag, ribbon, white tag, shadow tag, berries and Cottage Cutz. . . EZ Cut . .One Cut Dies.
So when you need to make about 10 or 20 quick gifts for the holiday. . .fix 6 tags in a cello bag, tie it up with some ribbon. Everyone always need gift tags for the season, you know that it is a gift that will be used.
What if you are giving bottles of wine or home baked bread. . A nice big tag to attach will always added a festive touch.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you, your Family and Friends
