Every day it's a getting closer - yes - I mean Christmas. Yesterday I picked up the very last of everything I need for gifts (I hope) - and now am concentrating on wrapping. I've been busy making some homemade gift tags to put on my packages and wanted to share a some quick, but cute ones.These tags use the "In the Woods" Framelit dies from page 27 of the Holiday Catalog - and thankfully these (and the coordinating set) are on the carry-over list so will still be available. I especially love this tree die, as it not only cuts out the tree - but also all those little parts that pop out.
You can see in the picture above that I added just a bit of Wink of Stella to the popped out branches to mimic the look of snow sparkling on the branches. And below you can see the back of the tag - where the branches hang over a bit - giving the tag some fun character.
I punched the tops of the tags using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch from the annual catalog - threaded through a bit of the Merry Merlot ribbon and tied a bow with our braided linen trim. Of course I had to add a little more bling by using Silver Shimmer paper for the snow drift.
The 'To: and From:" are from the "Bring on the Presents" set from page 16 of the Holiday catalog - although you could do the tags without adding that. I made all four of these in less than a 1/2 hour -so it's a great little project to get your tags done and on your packages.
