Tags with 3D Christmas Tree

By Vera Shelemekh


“Hello, Graphic45 fans. Let me share with you an idea of a very quick but spectacular Christmas tag. This would be great for Graphic 45 December challenge.

You will only need a couple of Christmas paper sheets and scissors to start.  Paper from Joy to the World or Christmas Magic collections would be perfect.


  1. First, cut the tag form. I’ve used Graphic45 Square and Regular tag metal dies.


  1. Then cut Christmas trees. You will need four trees per tag. The trees should be symmetric and equal in size.


  1. Bend the Christmas trees in the middle.


  1. Glue half of the tree from the back side and adhere it to another element.


  1. Do the same with the third and the fourth elements


  1. Glue halves of the first and the fourth elements and adhere the whole tree to the tag.


  1. Please, feel free to add more fussy cut details (e.g. angels or flowers) before sticking the tree to the tag.


  1. Decorate the tag with a festive ribbon or a plain twine rope. You may also glue the tag to a bigger and more solid form.





Tips and Tricks:

  • Use outer edge of the tag metal dies to cut bigger tag forms.

  • Feel inspired to add more fussy cat elements to the composition.

  • You may even decorate the Christmas tree with pearls or pompons.

I love making tags. I can't remember when I last purchased ready made tags for any occasion. Yours are beautiful.

The 3D trees are a really nice idea. I try to make my tags really special, and these fit the bill. The recipient will know that you really care about them---you spent extra time (rather than buying premade tags) making sure their package is really cute. NICE JOB.
