Christmas Tags

All Christmas packages need a fun tag attached saying who it's to and who it's from. Instead of using the generic stickers you can buy at the store why not make your own out of your scraps! Not only will it add a fun flair to your package but also help use up your scraps.

For my first two sets of tags I used scrap pieces of cardstock that I cut into 2.5"x3.5" rectangles and then snipped the top two corners. I added strips of patterned Christmas paper to the bottom and embellished with shapes cut from patterned paper or cut out stamped images. Then i punched holes at the top and tied with ribbons.

For the last two sets I used a to/from circle stamp that I had but this same technique could easily be done by using letter stamps and just stamping the words to/from next to each other and then using a circle punch to cut out. Or you could hand write the words or use rubons too! After wards I mounted the to/from circles to a bigger cardstock circle and then mounted that on an even bigger patterned paper circle. Then I embellished them with cut out shapes from patterned paper or cut out stamped images embellished with Stickles! Punch a hole in the top and tie with ribbon.
