Make your own Christmas Tags

Hi, Christine here again with the December project.

I'm always running out of Christmas tags for my family so decided to make my own using WoW embossing powders. So easy to do and gives your presents the personal touch too.

I cut out and embossed three chipboard tags with gold, silver and bronze powders and punched a hole in the top for the ribbon.

Using the "Is it a Bird" stamp, I randomly stamped a tree onto each tag and used an alternative colour embossing powder to give a background design.
This is a good way of decorating backgrounds for cards and your odd papers too. Try adding some small stamped and embossed  images to plain cardstock to revitalise your craft stash, or decorate your own Christmas wrapping papers using the same technique.  

I then added some embossed chipboard Trees onto each tag with coloured stars stuck into the branches to add some Christmas sparkle.

Ribbons were added to the top to tie the tags to my presents. Making your own gift-tags means you can personalise the tags to suit each member of the family.

Have a Happy Christmas everyone.
