Hello, G45ers!

  We hope you are having a fun and festive Holiday Season, to keep the spirit alive we have three show-stopping Christmas Magic tags to share with you.  These Tags have been created with love by the Queen of Fussy Cutting, Joanne Bain.  We hope you carve out some time to create this weekend.  Following these tags, we have our Weekly Contest Winner to announce so be sure to see if it is you!  


#SimplyG45 Gift Tag Trio

By Joanne Bain


Hello G45er’s!!

Joanne here with you today to share a trio of sweet gift tags created with the gorgeous Christmas Magic collection. What is even better is these are a SimplyG45 project which means they cost less than $10 and can be done in one hour or less.


All that you will need to create these cute gift tags are 3 pieces of patterned paper and Kraft cardstock. For my tag backing I have used the G45 Staples Kraft ATC tags but these are not required as you can just cut tags from the kraft cardstock. Use the tag template on the back of the 12x12 collection covers.


‘Christmas Magic Gift Tags’



How cute are they?



Each of the tag bases are created exactly the same way, it only the decorative fronts that are different. The longest part of these tags is the little bit of fussy cutting needed for the layered cluster.



To add a little bit of texture between the layers I have added some torn and frayed cheesecloth pieces.


You can find my snapguide tutorial below that will show you step by step how to create one of the tags, as I said earlier in the post the bases are all the same so let your imagination go wild and create your own cute top clusters for your little gift tags. ~Joanne
