Christmas Gift Tags


It's Anja here just before Christmas. I hope you are doing fine and that you're surrounded with your loved ones for Christmas. I got all my Christmas shopping done and I'm looking forward to see the expressions on everyones's faces when they open the presents.

Yesterday I made a few gift tags with the new dies I got. Mail tag dies are perfect for different tag sizes. I decorated them with golden bells and some holiday greenery.

For this project I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Christmas Holly Bells, Mistletoe & Bells, Holly Branch w/Bow, Happy Holidays Greeting, Mail Tag Set),
- Distress Inks (Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Pine Needles, Forest Moss, Vintage Photo),
- craft paper for tags,
- white card stock for die cuts,
- white pigment ink pad,
- gold pigment ink pad,
- gold ribbon,
- paper glue.

 First I cut the tags. I used white ink to color the edges.

Then I die cut the greenery and the bells. I used Distress Inks and gold pigment ink for coloring.

I cut the greeting from white card stock.

When I had everything cut and colored I arranged it on the tags and glued everything together. I used gold ribbon to go with gold bells.

And this is how they look from up close.

Have a beautiful and peaceful Christmas!
Anja Z.
