Cute little gift tags...

I made a few sets of gift tags to sell at the thrift store and this was one of those sets.

 I started out with these dies. The set of six circle dies on the left is fairly new, but the Quickutz ornament die on the right is really, really old! I think it was one of the first dies I ever bought when I first got my Cuttlebug (which bit the dust a couple of years ago).

I first cut out 6 of the round ornaments from different colors of cardstock and 6 from white cardstock, along with six toppers from silver hologram cardstock. Then I used the decorative circle dies to cut a design out of each of the colored ornament shapes.

Finally I glued the white shapes to the backs of the colored shapes and embellished.

Here's a picture of the completed tag fronts. I thought they really turned out cute. I added just a very few embellishments, like a gem in the middle of the snowflake, some Nuvo Drops on the tree, some Wink of Stella on the candy cane, etc.

On the back, I used my very old wood-mounted stamp for the "to" and "from," and I added a length of red and white baker's twine to each one. Easy peasy!

I really enjoy making tags. They're so quick and easy and really seem to sell well at the thrift shop. 

I'm going to try to squeeze in a few posts this week about some of the Christmas cards I've made recently. 

I also made a little Christmas gift for some of my neighbors that I want to share with you, so I hope you'll come back and visit.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

What a great way to combine those dies! Your tags turned out wonderfully. I'm happy that you can supply the thrift store with a product that sells so well. Can't wait to see your Christmas cards.

These are cute tags and will make any gift more festive. I like the layered look.

Very cute! What did you replace your Cuttlebug with? have 2 different electric cutter things, but no actual die cut machines,

Hi, Carol. Thanks for visiting my blog. I replaced my Cuttlebug with a Big Shot Plus. I love the larger platform. It enables me to use larger dies and to also send a full sheet of 8 1/2" X 11" paper through it.

What cut cute tags, - love Nuvo drops, never have any problem with them except of course my gold one. Will replace it next year - unless something better comes out. I have the Big Shot as well as the Gemini Jr. (on sale at HL),love the Gemini for mass producing but if just cutting one I sue my Big Shot. Have a Merry Christmas, stay safe, stay warm and stay in.
