Color Me Christmas Tags

I recently held a Christmas Tag Class.  I had started to go in this direction using Color Me Christmas…but then completely changed my mind.  However, I had already made up these quick little tags so I thought I'd show you.

These were REALLY fast and easy to make.  In fact, I need some Santa tags this year, so think I'll make up more of those! 

  1. I used the Chalk Talk Framelits and cut the large sized bases in Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake. 
  2. I cut a 1" strip of Season of Style to fit the larger background in various patterns and adhered towards the bottom of the tag.
  3. Next I cut the smaller Framelit shape for each one from Whisper White and stamped the images on them with Black Stazon.
  4. I used the Stampin' Write Markers and AquaPainter to watercolor the images, then punched a 1/8" hole in the top of the Whisper White.
  5. I adhered to the front of the base with Stampin' Dimensionals and added White Bakers Twine for a hanger!

We actually did use this darling Santa case in class to hold the tags the attendees made!  The idea from a larger case I saw online.  I used the half sized Wood Mount Cases for mine and scaled down the size!  I just measured the outside of the case and cut the Real Red cardstock to fit.

 

Santa case

  1. The 1 1/4 x 5" Whisper White strip was embossed with the Beautiful Baroque folder.
  2. I added a 1 1/4 strip of Basic Black across the front.
  3. I cut a 1 1/2 x 1 1/2" piece of Silver Glimmer Paper, then a 1 x 1" square of Basic Black was adhered over the Silver Glimmer Paper.
  4. Finally, I added Rhinestones for the buckle holes!

Super cute and my class LOVED them!

Love this set and case Connie! A question for you about the case: Did you put everything under the plastic or over? Thanks.

Yes.  It slides in between the sleeve and the outside of the box.  Thanks…Connie!
