Chipboard Gift Tags


I used the images from my Little Bit Kits to make some cute holiday gift tags. Most of the other materials came from SU!'s On Board Accents and Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' Kit. I *love* the Winter Bright SS Kit -- the colors and patterns are so fun and festive! I've hardly used the kit for scrapbooking, but I have found lots of other ways to use it! To make the tags, I covered the chipboard in paper (a glue stick works like a charm), then I sanded all the edges. I used several punches for the layers. The tree image was stamped on paper and cut out. I lightly stamped the snowflake from Reindeer Games on the oval behind the tree. Lulu and the gifts were stamped, colored, and cut out. All were mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals. I embellished with Stardust Stickles, eyelets, and misc. ribbon & fibers. I made an extra sentiment tag for the star by inking up only the "merry" part of "merry Christmas" then rounding the corners of the cardstock.



I think these would be so much fun on a gift, tied to a bottle of wine, or attached to a bag of Christmas goodies! Or, they could be part of a gift set for a teacher or Secret Santa. Lots of possibilities! :)
