Festive Holiday Tags
By Babi Kind
Today I would like to share with you my Christmas tags using The Twelve Days of Christmas Collection.
I have to admit that Christmas projects are usually very challenging to me. We always have a project or theme that takes us out of our comfort zone, right? At the same time, I feel the need to push myself to create things that I certainly do not do on a daily basis.
How about you?
Since I love all kinds of wreaths, I decided to create my own using Large Tag, ATC Tag and Flower Dies. You can see how I created the wreath and tag on the video at the end of this post.
Tip: When you are a struggling with a project, choose an embellishment or technique that you really like and are comfortable with. Suddenly, the project becomes fun and less challenging.
I chose this silhouette piece to finish my wreath. Cutting the piece in a Kraft paper and stamping it in white ink with Nature Sketchbook stamp. It gives a light touch to it.
On my second tag, I used fussy cut flowers from the collection to decorate the wreath.
I also splattered white gesso in both tags for a shabby look.
You can use this wreath for Spring, Fall or any other seasonal theme project. Just change the colors and embellishments.
You can add a gift card on the back of the tag or to a package as a decoration.
