Holiday Tags Class Projects

Take a look at the tags we made at my Holiday Tags Class last week:

Here's a close up look at the different tags we made.

This first group of tags are not my original design. They were a make-n-take at Stampin' Up!'s Convention this year. The tags were cut out using the Two Tags Biz Die & Big Shot. The scallop circle punch coordinates perfectly with the scallops on one of the tags. That is one of the reasons why I LOVE using Stampin' Up!'s products--coordinating colors, shapes, images, etc. could not be easier!

Stamp Sets: Tree Trimmings & Sweet Seasons

Here's a super simple tag. We used the marker to stamp technique to highlight the poinsettia.

Stamp Set: Holiday Punch (Hostess Set)

This is another super simple tag that is stamped in White Craft Ink and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.

Stamp Sets: Snow Swirled & Holiday Punch

These next tags were a hit with the ladies who came to my classes.
They are made with 3" circles (cut out with the Circle Scissor Plus). The top of the ornaments are Round Tab Punches. The snowflakes are stamped in Frost White Shimmery Paint and some additional shimmery paint is sponged on around the edges.
And the final tag:
The poinsettia flower is made using three 5-Petal Flower punches (2 in Ruby Red & 1 in Old Olive). They are rotated slightly and then held together by a 5/16" Jumbo Brad.

Consider making your own holiday tags--even the most simple handmade tags will brighten any package. This would be a great project to use up some of your scraps leftover from other projects. Cut 2" x 2 1/2" pieces of card stock, punch the corners with the tag corner punch, decorate with your favorite stamped images and you have an instant tag!
The next class I have coming up is Give Thanks Card Class on November 20, 10am-noon. We can never have too many thank you cards in our greeting cards stash. If your stash is running low, give me a call and sign up for my class! Check the events calendar on my official Stampin' Up! website for my complete class schedule.
Happy Stampin!

Gorgeous tags Brenda. I have a circle scissors plus sitting in a box that arrived from SU this morning. Thanks for the inspiration.
