One of my favorite things to do around the holiday season, besides shopping, is preparing my presents with homemade gift wrap. Every year I change my gift wrap up slightly, however, I always stick to the familiar tones of kraft, cream, read, and a lime green, and this year is no different.
Today, I'm sharing three DIY gift tags with you that I created using my Right at Home Stamps Holiday collection. I may be a little biased, but I just love these stamps!
All three tags measure 2 1/5 in wide by about 4 in tall and were cut using my Silhouette Cameo.
Tag #1 // Sending Warm Winter Wishes
For my first tag, I knew I wanted to incorporate a paper bow so I grabbed some red paper and die-cut one using a My Favorite Things die. The die-set comes with two different sizes of bows and is seriously a must-have for holiday crafting. Below the tag I adhered some green striped paper to add a fun touch. Before I adhered the bow using Min Glue Dots, I stamped my greetings using my sentiments set in brown ink. Once I adhered the bow, I was finished!
Tag #2 // Poinsettia
This tag started with the idea to use my Poinsettia set to make a layered flower. I stamped both the smallest and largest poinsettia from my set in Lawn Fawn Lobster ink and trimmed them out with a slight border. I adhered them together and folded up the edges of the smallest flower to add depth and dimension. I also added a yellow button in the center to finish it off. For the rest of the tag, I stamped a piece of kraft paper with a background stamp with the Lawn Fawn Yeti Pigment Ink (seriously...this may be my new go-to pigment ink!) and added a green scalloped piece above. I stamped a "to" and "from" and I was finished!
Tag #3 // It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
This tag is perhaps my most complex tag, but I know you can easily re-create it. I started with a kraft rectangle that covered a good portion of my tag. I knew I wanted to add some texture so I used that same Yeti ink and a background stamp from MFT. Overtop I used one of my sentiments in a brown ink. I love the way the texture still peeks through the brown ink! Next, I used a cross-stitching die to add some faux stitches to the left side. I also used my leaves, berries, and cross-hatch stamp from my Poinsettia sets to create the little holly bundle.
And those are my three tags! I hope you like what I created.
