12 Days of Christmas Tags – Day 2

Welcome back everyone! Today I’m going a little retro and simpler for mass production. I pulled out my original Sizzix dies for this one and paper pieced everything together.

To start off I took a 2×3 inch piece of tagboard and punched it with my tag topper punch. Then I took a corner rounder to the bottom 2 corners. Next, I inked the edges with black soot distress ink and splattered gold and silver watercolor on them.

For the lights I added gold ends to the bulbs and then inlaid white for the highlight. I used glue dots to add a little twine as string to make them look connected.

The mittens were cut from some adorable Doodlebug paper and the cuffs from white glitter cardstock. Then I also used twine to make them look like those kids mittens that have a string connecting them so you don’t lose one.

Last I have a stocking that was cut from the same pad of Doodlebug paper and I added silver to the cuff, heel and toe. I thought they looked out of place hanging there so I added a loop to the top with twine for them to hang from.

I looped twine through the tops of all the tags and stamped to and from on the backs. These came together really quickly and are super easy to coordinate with your packaging if you wanted to.

Don’t forget there are prizes to be won. Comment each day on here, on my Instagram post for the day and then head to Caffeinated Craftiness and do the same for her. Four comments per day gives you a shot at any one of four prizes!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
