I used some more of the Graphic45 double-sided cardstock for this tag. It measures approx. 6"X3". I rounded the corners on this tag. First I painted this tag with Studio Landscape Green. When it dried, I painted over it with white gesso and added some clear Stickles before it dried. Next I painted over those layers with Ranger's antique Crackle. When it dried, I rubbed Ranger's photo Distress inkpad over the crackle effect until I had it down into the cracks. I tore a 1" strip of the same cardstock and edged it with brown ink before adhering it to the tag near the bottom. Next I used two Storybook labels cut with the Cricut and layered them together with tiny star brads. I wrote the "to/from" with a fine-point Sharpie; then, I glued them to the bottom of the tag as shown. I used some of the Graphic45 Christmas postalz cut from a sheet of their cardstock. I ran these through my small Xyron sticker-maker and stuck them on the tag. I used a strip of stick-on red star gems to the left side of the tag and randomly placed green gems around the tag. I tied a red ribbon on this tag.
I love the texture on this red cardstock..........and it is such a pretty red. ") This tag measures approx. 2"X4". I stamped the "Joy" with gold ink and edged all around the tag with a gold-leafing pen. I used a fine-point Sharpie to write the "to/from". Next I wrapped a 1/2" piece of white twill around the tag below the writing and secured it with a gold enamel Bo Bunny brad. I also used a gold square brad at the top of the tag. I placed a Bo Bunny rubon below the white twill. I tied the top of the tag with white sheer ribbon.
This tag measures aboout 3"X6". I love combining my rubberstamps in all my art. Here I have stamped a Santa face directly on the tag and colored them in with Copic markers. I have used a double-sided cardstock (which I use in most of my paper arts) on this tag. I tore a piece about 3"X3" and used the reverse side. Then I edged around the piece with brown ink. I angled this piece a little upwards and secured it to the tag, hiding a bit of Santa under it. Next I used some Bo Bunny rubons for the top and bottom of the tag. Then I stamped the sentiment in green ink at the bottom of the tag. I edged the tag all around with brown ink and added the gold paper trim to the right side of the tag. I tied a green ribbon through the top of the tag.
This is the smallest tag I made, but I think it is the sweetest. It measures 2 1/2"X2 1/2". This one was actually cut on the Cricketcut. I tore a piece of red cardstock about 1" wide and edged it in brown ink. I then tore a piece of music cardstock about 1/2" wide and edged it with the brown ink. I adhered the music paper to the center of the red paper. Then, I used tiny star brads and placed them directly over some of the music notes. I adhered this piece to the tag and edged all around the tag with brown ink. I used a Sharpie to write "To:/From" and added the red ribbon through the hole at the top.
Here are some of my Christmas tags. I actually taught a class the first of the month using these tags as my examples. I used about three times this number before I got all my gifts wrapped; but, that included the stocking stuffers, too. ") I love making tags for any occasion.
