I've been on a Christmas tag making rampage lately. I was in the mood to make tags, aiming for a clean + simple look. I gathered up my Christmas stamps, embossing powder, heat gun, ink pads and other miscellaneous supplies and got crafty. I started by cutting out a whole bunch of tags in a variety of sizes on both white and kraft card stock. I used my Cricut to cut out the tags quickly.
This tag is one that I've made before. I used an old die cut tree shape from Creative Memories, traced the tree on green + white polka dot paper, then cut out each tree by hand. I was really wishing that I had a Christmas Cricut cartridge so that I could have cut the trees a lot more efficiently, but I cut all 20 trees pretty quickly while watching a football game. I used pop dots to attach the trees to a white tag and then I topped each tree with a gold brad.
For this tag I stamped Happy Holidays using another Martha Stewart stamp and a red ink pad. Then I stamped snowflakes (another MS stamp from the same set) and embossed them with silver embossing powder.
I bought a fun Merry Christmas stamp from PromptShop on Etsy and used it to stamp on both white and kraft tags. The white card stock is textured so the stamp didn't turn out as well; I definitely liked the look of the kraft tags better.
Once I had a nice variety of tags made I decided to sell them locally. I created a display showing all of the tags and then packaged ten sets to bring to a local coffee shop. The sets include eleven tags and come with either red or brown baker's twine. I put the tags in clear, cello bags along with a business card and then packaged them in cute kraft chevron bags sealed with washi tape.
I really had fun making these tags and if I didn't have several other things on my to-do list I would probably still be working on them.
