I've made some very quick and easy Christmas gift tags for those last minute wrapping sessions.
I have only used some kraft cardstock, some patterned paper scraps, journaling pen and some paper raffia.
Step 1. I have cut my cardstock to 2 inches x 3 inches, drawn a border around the edge with a journaling pen and punched a hole in the top.
Step 2. I simply cut some basic shapes (triangle, square and circle) out of patterned paper scrap
(For these tags I have used scraps from Echo Park 'Everybody Loves Christmas' range and 7 Gypsies 'Avignon' range).
Step 3. I drew a border around each shape with a black journaling pen.
Step 4. Attach the patterned paper shape to the tag and tie some paper raffia through the hole at the top
(for the square shape I tied some paper raffia around it to make it look like a present).
For some visual interest on some of the tags, I wrote Merry Christmas repeatedly across the tag before I attached the patterned paper shape.
Step 5. On the other side I have stamped to: and from:
Tip: to line up your stamps where you want them to appear.....simply place them down onto the tag
I then placed my acrylic block (which is in desperate need of a good clean) down onto the stamps to pick them up.
I have used basic shapes but you can personalise them to suit your style or for a different occasion altogether (birthdays, baby gifts, thank you etc...)
For example, here I have cut out a heart shape...
Hope that has given you some ideas for quick and easy tags.
Hope everyone has a safe and special Christmas
