Today, on the Bella Blog I shared some fun Christmas tags with Bella's Christmas Wishes collection. I love giving tags as a hostess gift, and I also enjoy creating tags for my children's presents. Christmas wishes is full of happy colors, and who would not love to see this merry color palette under the tree?
Here is a closer look at the bag I created. I thought this was a cute size to tuck them into. On the front I used a white doily that I cut the inside circle from, and layered it with a circle, punched from vellum. Of course, I added a bit of embossing using a snowflake embossing folder. Then just simple embellishments round out this bag. I used the adorable chipboard reindeer, stickers, and white seam binding. I attached a mini jingle bell from the bow with a safety pin.
A look at the three tags I created:
I really love the simplicity of this one. I used the journaling spots from the cute cuts paper, as the base for all of my Christmas tags. Here I rounded the corners, and used my new punch for a few touches. I love the three circles on the front, and the star element as the final detail to the tag.
Here I used a little bit of this & that to create a tag full of texture, and dimension. Again, the tree is a cute cut, that I cut to fit onto the tag. I embellsihed it with a sweet candy cane, and a dec. 25 circle that was inked with one of Bella's miniature stamp sets. Another glittered star, and gorgeous silver seam binding finish the tag at the top.
My final tag created with all traditional Christmas colors. The white satrburst circle underneath the green scallop is the circle cut from the inside of the white doily, used on the first tag. I used some border strips, and more stamping to finish the bottom of the tag.
I have discovered in the last year, that I love designing tags for any time of the year. I hope to begin working on 14 new Valentine's tags this weekend. I will share a peek of a few of them, once they are done. They are part of a class I will be teaching in January.
Have a very merry weekend, and thank you for stopping by!
