Hello and welcome!!
Over the next 12 days, my friend Amanda over at Twiddler’s Nook and I are going to share different Christmas tag ideas with you. We’re hoping to inspire you to spice up your gift wrapping this year. Be sure to check out both blogs and leave comments for a chance to win at the end of our 12 days.
Amanda and I are giving away 2 prizes each. A gift certificate for $15 to Newton’s Nook, $15 to Trinity Stamps and we’ve both created loaded envelopes with handmade goodies from us! We will each choose an Instagram commenter and a blog commenter. That’s a chance at 1 of 4 prizes! Comment each day because you never know which day will be the lucky one.
For my first tag, I knew I had to pull back out one of my all time favorite stamp sets, Stamping Up’s Cookie Cutter Christmas! I am not a current demonstrator, nor am I affiliated with one so I am unsure if this set has been retired or not yet….BUT I STILL LOVE IT!! These reindeer make me smile every time, and who doesn’t like a quick tag creation this time of year?
to make these is simple, here’s how:
- Stamp reindeer in brown ink (I used Versafine Clair ink in Acorn)
- Punch out stamped image using the coordinating Stamping Up Cookie cutter punch.
- Glue red pom pom to “nose”
- attach a swipe of festive washiest tape over a precut kraft tag
- Attach twine through hole at top of tag
That’s it!! You have a completed tag. This tag has the benefit of being easily mass produced if needed as well.
That wraps up my post for today. Be sure to leave a comment both here and over at Twiddler’s Nook , and then if you are still with us, hop on over to Amanda’s and my Instagram accounts for even more chances to win a prize!! I will be back tomorrow with day 2!! See you then!
