Christmas gift tags

Hola!

In Spain most people give Christmas presents on the 6th of January. Well, I should say the Three Wise Men are bringing us presents on the 6th of January 😉 Today I’m sharing with you the tags I made for my family gifts using several Lawn Fawn products.

First, I used two “Puffy stars stackables” dies on some Simon Says Stamp “Glimmery Sunshine” cardstock so I had a star shaped window for my critters to show through. I used the bigger of these two dies on black cardstock and on some paper from “Knit picky” collection too, because I wanted my tags to be star shaped mini cards as well.

I scored the pattern paper stars at around half an inch from the stars’ tip and glued those tips to the golden stars to have my mini card bases. Next, I trimmed the tips of the black stars and glued them to the inside of the card bases. I used “Say cheese” die to cut the hole for the ribbon because it die cuts two little holes. The problem is that the hole is very close to the tip end of the star and it’s very easy to tear the card apart threading the ribbon… So today I have ordered a Crop-A-Dile taking advantage of some sales 😉

I stamped the images from “For you, deer” stamp set on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I stamped the back side of the animals twice because their paws peek out the lower part of the stars. I colored the images with my ShinHan Touch Twin markers and die cut them using coordinating dies. Then, I glued the front and the back of the critters together and trimmed down the second backside of the critters so I could glue it on the front to have their little paws there too. Next, I adhered these super cute critters to the card.

I used Golden Glitz Delicata ink to stamp the sentiment on the inside of the card. I placed the sentiment carefully so the animals cover it when the mini cards are closed. With the same ink, I stamped the backside of the mini cards. I have a little bowl on my desk with a lot of die cuts and stamped images, and I found there some little hearts from “Wonderful window” die, I think. I inked them with a red alcohol marker, glued them to the back of the critters and covered them with Glossy Accents. Last, I threaded the ribbon and made a knot.

I’m super happy with these tags. “For you, deer” is one of my favorite Lawn Fawn products from last year. I really love those critters!

I hope you like these tags. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!
