Thanks for joining me today for this weeks Papertrey Ink Design Team Tip!
Today I've got a simple and easy-to-assemble holiday treat for you. A quick way to dress up all those Christmas gifts... pattern paper layered tags! This truly is such a simple concept and I've thought to myself many times as I was creating these... Why did I never think of this before?!?!
Check them out...They feature a pop of color and pattern behind a simply stamped tag, all tied up with a little bit of baker's twine.
Here's How: Start off by die cutting two identically shaped tags, one from pattern paper and the second from cardstock that matches nicely. Trim the bottom edge off from the cardstock tag and stamp as desired. Tie the two tags together with ribbon or twine.
My go-to decoration for Christmas gifts consists of... kraft paper wrap, wide ribbon and a pretty tag. I just love how the pattern paper and hand stamping really pop and make the tag take center stage against the simple wrapping. This tag was made using the Tag Sale #5 die, a sentiment from from the 'Tis the Season Sentiments stamp set and lights from the Come All Ye Faithful Additions stamp set.
This one features the Tag Sale #5 die and a sentiment from from the 'Tis the Season Sentiments stamp set too. Along with trees from the Holiday Cheer stamp set.
Using a tag die that features a fancy bottom edge adds yet another interesting and sweet detail. This one features the Tag Sale #7 die, a sentiment from the 'Tis the Season Sentiments stamp set and snowflakes from the Two Feet Deep stamp sets.
These will definitely take my gift wrapping up a notch this Christmas season, and of course throughout the year for many other occasions too. I hope it does the same for you! Just a Note: all pattern papers are from the Studio Calico Gingerbread add on kit.
That's it from me today. I hope you too will give these adorable tags a try. Have fun!
