Good morning and Happy Hump Day! I’m here today to share a quick post on my first Christmas project of the season. I was lucky enough to get in on a tag swap with a very fun and talented group of crafters. The instructions were to make any type of tag but I decided to get a jump start on the holiday and go with a Christmas gift tag. I needed to make 21 tags so to keep it simple, I went with the print & cut feature on my Silhouette instead of cutting each piece separately. That’s what I call easy-peasy.
I started with a simple tag cut out of kraft cardstock and then added my red ribbon at the top tied with jute string and a faux bow on the side. Just to add some interest, I layered my sentiment on top of a piece of burlap. The sentiment and the tree came from the Silhouette Online Store. I filled them with color and patterns and then used the offset feature to create a white border. I cut my star out of white glittered cardstock and used foam squares under the tree to add some dimension. Finally, I added some glossy accents to the holly berries. It just doesn’t get any easier than this. I hope this inspires you to get started on your holiday projects and be sure to come back and see the other projects we have planned.
