More Christmas Tags

Like I said in this week's 'card of the week' post, it has been a paper crafting goal of mine to place a handmade Christmas tag on each gift I give.

To this end, I have been making loads of Christmas tags, the first of which I showed you here.

Today I would like to show you the rest of the tags that I have made.

I cut out all these tags using my Silhouette. What a super fun afternoon that was!

I made quite a few tags using patterned paper from Bella Blvd. I love the fun, quirky patterns and the use of non-traditional colors. I embellished these tags using coordinating stickers, attaching them to the tags with foam squares to add a bit of dimension.
Next, I used patterned paper from Basic Grey. I though that these tags would be better suited for a man's gift given the dark, masculine colors of the paper. I cut the snowflakes out with my Silhouette and attached them to the tags using foam squares.
These tags are also made with patterned paper from Basic Grey. I skipped embellishing them since the paper is so pretty all on its own.
Since all of the patterned paper that I used was double sided, I cut each tag out a second time using coordinating cardstock and attached it to the back of the tag. This made the tag heavier and sturdier, and provided a plain spot to write who the gift is for.
When it came to wrapping my gifts, I used Kraft paper (like brown shipping paper but lighter weight) so that my tags would stand out.

And I am happy to announce that each gift I give this season will have a handmade tag attached. (And I have lots left over giving me a head start on my Christmas crafting for next year).
