Hello, G45ers!  

 Welcome to a fabulously festive blog post!  Today we have a set of gorgeous tags that are simple and elegant, by the lovely and talented, Nichola Battilana.  These tags are just in time to celebrate our #G45Tag - December Challenge and highlight our Large Tag, ATC Tag & Flower Metal Dies and Artist Trading Tags just perfectly.  So pull out your papers and let's start creating something beautiful together!  


#G45Tag - DIY Floral Tags

By Nichola Battilana


“As much as I adore bright and colourful Christmas wrap, there’s something lovely about “brown paper packages tied up with string”. They really are one of my favourite things!



I’ve made some sweet and simple #G45tags as a perfect finishing touch to those packages.



I’ve used papers from the Christmas Magic Patterns & Solids Pad with flower and leaf dies from the Large Tag, ATC Tag and Flower Dies Set



I added paper leaf sprigs and a single assembled flower (made with the two smallest flower dies) to Artist Trading Tags–Kraft along with a few faux berries.



If I had beautiful handwriting I’d add pretty writing to the tags… alas I have a decidedly messy scrawl so I opted for a simple stamped initial in gold embossing powder.



A length of twine, a touch pine (or maybe a candycane or two!) these sweet wee tags add such a nice homey handmade touch.



To show you just how easy these are to put together I have a quick little video to show you exactly how I made them.” ~Nichola
