Christmas Gift Tags

I know I said one of my goals this year was to not play catch up, but....
It seems like that is what I am still doing, lol.
But I still want to share what I did with you all, even if it is past the Christmas season.

My friends and I wanted to do a Christmas gift tag swap.
It was actually my friend Lesli from "Vintage Scraps" that wanted us to do it.
Then she got busy, so I kind of took over....I tend to do that, lol.
So each of us had to make a set of 3 tags for everyone that was joining in on the tag swap, and there were 9 of us that were in the swap.
Here are my tags :)
Sorry for the bad pics, but I had to take screen caps of my video, because I forget to take photos, lol.

I made these banner tags with card stock I was gifted from
This paper was very heavy, so perfect for this, and you could do lots of layering without the paper buckling from the weight.
I picked up these K&Co. medallions from the dollar store and just backed them on the red cardstock.
I think these ones were my favourite.

Made these for the Coffee lovers in our group...which is most everyone besides me, lol.
But I think of them as Hot chocolate cups ;)
I cut them out with the Tim Holtz coffee die.
I cut 2 of the lids out for each tag, as I wanted the backs to be finished as well.

This one was fun.
I had a Stampin' Up get together last year and we did a card using one of their dies.
When the demonstrator was going to throw away the negative part of the die cut paper, I grabbed them all knowing one day I would use them.
A year later and I did!!!
I put some pattern paper (the green Merry Christmas) paper behind the negative image and voila another tag.
I did add some embellishments that I have had for over 15 yrs to the edge, inked it and called it done :)

I didn't have enough of the Stampin' Up die cut pieces, so I wanted to make a tag similar in style as that one.
So I used my punch of a deer head to punch out the shape and added the pattern paper behind it.

Lastly I made gift card holders to put all of the tags in.
I thought that once they use the tags, the gift card holders can be used as well....a gift with in a gift ;)
Everything I made, I made with my scraps :)
I even snuck some of my scraps out of the "to be donated" pile, lol.

I even made a video :)
If you would rather watch my video on my YouTube channel as it will give you the full width of the video...I need to learn how to fix that on my blog, lol.
Check it out here "Tracy's Treasures24"

I had a lot of fun making these with my friends and will share with you the ones that I had received in a later post :)

Hope you all have a very Creative Day

  1. Awesome tags using scraps, my fav. is the first one and the hot chocolate one and that holder is fab.

  2. Very nice tags - I like the hot chocolate one, I would think of it as a tea cup tag ...

  3. I love these! And great use of the negatives!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
