Welcome to Day 10 of the Holiday Countdown Series for 2015! Join us each day as designers share with you fun, easy and inspiring holiday crafts.
It’s Bev here today and I am super excited to share my very first post here at CutCardStock and how wonderful is it to start with my special holiday tag on a layout.
Start with a custom cut tag with a punched hole. Size to your project .. mine is about 2″ wide x 3.5″ long (because I am putting mine on my layout to share with you. Normal tag size is about 3″ x 6″… but anything works.Collect your pieces you want to create your tag with. They can be smaller stash size. I matted my base with Stardream metallic for sparkle.
I like to work in layers without using the main base so I cut a piece of cardstock 1 7/8″ x 2 5/8″ to cover. To make things interesting I went with a cross angle design. It allow for some fun colour options and lots of shapes. (this is you own choice).
You can see the fun layers being created. Lots of design options when creating tags. Just have fun. When the main design piece is done add it to the tag shape. Now using 1 or more generous length of ribbon…. tie it off and cut the ribbons on an angle. To finish off your tag.. add sentiment, accents or stickers to co-ordinate with your theme. They are so cute for to many projects.
