On the 5th day of Christmas

Everyone needs a tag to put on their gifts don't they???
We don't want Uncle Freddy getting the hankies and perfume meant for Nanna do we!!!

Creating home made tags takes next to no time & adds that personal touch to your gift giving.

I feel like I really cheated with these - because they were so easy using the Fancy Pants Traditions Tags and Titles.

Sporting a bit of a hangover thanks to a 40th birthday party last night, I made these 5 tags this morning.

I used coordinating 4 x 6 inch paper scraps for the base of each gift tag.

Tag 1
For the 1st tag I used some coordinating Fancy Pants Tradition - Stars & Holly paper as the base.
A strip of red & white polka dot paper through the middle topped with the Merry Christmas Tag.
Finished off with a green ribbon bow.

Tag 2
For the 2nd tag I used some red & cream paper as the base and corner rounded the edges.
I then matted the Christmas Wishes tag on corrogated cardstock & attached to the base.
A red semi-circle was glued above the Christmas Wishes title with a Christmas tree brad in the middle of it.
Finished off by stapling red leather strips to the top and bottom.

Tag 3
Using green & white polka dot paper for the base - the edges were inked in umber.
Snowflake tag was matted onto red paper and adhered to base.
Using a brown pen stitching was drawn around the snowflake tag.
Snowflake brad was put through the centre of the snowflake.
Finished off by punching 3 holes down the side with green ribbon threaded through.

Tag 4
Coordinating Fancy Pants Tradition Stripe & Scallop paper was used as the base.
Peace Love Joy title was matted on red paper & then adhered to base.
Finished off by punching 2 holes on the side and tying a blue bow through the holes.

Tag 5

Blue paper was used as base.
Used Fiskars threading water punch on a scrap of white cardstock and stuck it to the lower half of the base.
A left over scrap of Tradition Stripe & Scallop paper was adhered to the upper half of the base.
Rectangle flourish tag was stuck on top.
Finished off with green paper twine wrapped around the top which was stapled at either end to secure it in place.

This year my friends and family will receive presents wrapped in brown paper & strung with twine and one of these gift tags.

Much nicer than the shop bought ones don't you think.
