I needed a gift tag for a Yankee Swap gift and wanted to take part in The Twelve Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist on the Ellen Hudson the Classroom blog. I was inspired by Paula Cheney’s tag on Day 9.

Simon Says Stamp and Show also has a challenge-Inspired by Tim 12 Tags.

Here is what I did to put on a pink gift bag.

Christmas tag

This really was all Tim Holtz products. I cut out two tags, dry embossed one with Tim’s Texture Fades Sheet Music folder. I glued the two together to add weight to the tag then rubbed it with Bundled Sage and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks.

His line of Sizzix dies, Tags & Bookplates, Stacked Christmas Words, Reindeer Flight and Tattered Poinsettas made up the embellishments.

The tag was a hit at the Yankee Swap. One of the participants took it from the someone who had chosen it and said “I just want to bag. You don’t have to give me what’s inside..” I choose to interpret that not as a disparaging remark about the contents but instead the quality of the tag.

On to more tag and card making. I hope you are all on schedule for your holiday preparations. Thanks for stopping by.
