Wings of Joy Christmas Tags

Hey Crafty Friends – I’m checking in today with a set of tags that match the Christmas Planner I posted yesterday.  I had some scraps of Holly Jolly Christmas designer paper left over and thought they would be perfect for some little tags. 

The birdie and sentiment are from the Wings of Joy stamp set and I picked up the die cut tags from the Taylored Expressions online store.


I took pictures of the tags in sets so that you can see the detail of each.  Besides the designer paper and slightly different shades of dark brown cardstock they are the same but a few extra pictures don’t hurt, do they? ;)


The strips of designer paper range from an 1” wide to about 1 1/2”.  I layered the strips on Chocolate Chip or Early Espresso cardstock and rounded the corners before adding Platinum Liquid Pearls.  After 6 tags and 7 labels from yesterday’s project my right hand was a bit sore from dabbing dots everywhere.  But it was worth it.


The birdie was stamped on Choice Snow White cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  A bit of Icicle Stickles was added to the hat.  Once dry the birds were adhered to small circles of green cardstock die cut with a Lacey Circles Nestabilities die.  A sentiment was stamped on Soft Sky cardstock, trimmed to size and then also adhered to the circles using more dimensionals.


To finish a bow was tied using the Bow Easy and attached to the tag front using twine and accented with a button.  I then attached the tag front to the tag base using dimensionals and added an eyelet to the top.
