This Friday and Saturday for my last class for the year we made Christmas tags. It was a lot of fun and my class members were very creative. I wanted to share them with you.
Firstly, I made up a Circle Christmas tag which I will show you further below. They all got to make one of these (or more if they wanted too). Then I had some other tag samples from the past year or 2 I had made or received and put out my retired and current papers and ribbons and Christmas stamps and let them be creative. I forgot to take photos from Friday’s class but here is Saturday’s creative achievements.
Aren’t they great???
I wanted to show you the Carols of Christmas Circle Christmas tag particularly and how we made it.
You can make these type of tags to any size or any shape you like. The principle is the same. I will give you the general instructions but then give you the measurements I used below.
The card will be cut depending on the size of the circle Framelit you use. Cut your card to about twice the length of the circle and score in half. This is for your card base.
You will need a second piece of card for the front measuring just larger than your die.
For the measurements for this tag:
Cut your card to 9cm x 18cm score at 9cm. (3 1/2″ x 7″ score at 3 1/2″)
1. I used the Largest scallop circle of the Layering Circles Framelits. Place the top of the Framelit just off the edge of the scored fold. This edge won’t cut creating your fold for the card.
2. On a smaller piece of card cut a full size scallop circle with the same Framelit. This is for the front of the card.
3. Adhere the full size scallop circle onto the front of the folded scallop card lining up the scallops carefully. I found using the Multipurpose adhesive gives you a little more sliding room.
4. Using the largest circle in the Layering Circles Framelits cut a circle from Whisper White to stamp your sentiment from the Carols of Christmas set.
5. I cut a smaller circle in white to line inside the tag so you can write on.
6. Using a hole punch or I used the Crop A Dile, punch through at the top to tie your ribbon through. You may like to mark the place to punch with a pencil to mark it in the right spot.
Here is a condensed photo for pinning.
Hope you like it. Everyone loved it that came to class.
Thanks for stopping by,
