Countdown to Christmas - Day 16

I'm still caught up - I cannot believe it.  But if you saw the state of my house, you'd know certain things were sacrificed for me to keep up on anything crafty!

Today I'm sharing another set of great tags that were made during my Christmas in October camp.  I love these tags.  They are quick, easy, and use scraps with minimal stamping. 

To make:
  • Punch 1/8 circle punch on squares of DSP.  Fold twine in half and put the bent end through the hole.  Thread the two ends through it and pull lightly (so it doesn't rip!) 
  • Stamp the white pieces with the To/From using Crumb Cake ink.  Attach the circles to the center of four DSP pieces using adhesive. 
  • Cut out the embellishments and layer on the tags using dimensionals.
  • Attach the real red circles to the other two DSP squares.  Layer the strip of White using adhesive.  Add the punched candy circles to the tags using dimensionals.

  • Cardstock: Candy Cane DSP (6 patterns @ 2 1/2 x 2 1/2, scrap for cut outs), Whisper White (4 @ 2" Circles, 2 @ 1 x 2 1/2), Real Read (2 @ 2" Circles)
  • Ink: Crumb Cake
  • Stamps: Tin of Tags
  • Accessories: Candy Cane Bakers Twine, Scissors, Dimensionals, 2" Circle Punch, Adhesive, 1/8 circle punch
These were so much fun, I even had my daughter make a set using our decorative masks and we ended up doing these at my Mommy & Me camp.  I love that she filled them out already and that she's giving herself a gift.....  These types of projects help kids work on their hand-eye coordination through the cutting and also they loved the artistry of using the masks and a brayer to create the background.  You could use any to/from stamp but I've found my kiddos have better luck with foam stamps then photopolymer so I had them use the woodmount Cozy Christmas set from last year's holiday catalog.  

  • Cardstock/DSP: Crumb Cake (4 @ 3 x 3), Whisper White (4 @ 3 x 1), Candy Cane Lane DSP (scrap with one of each image)
  • Ink: Crumb Cake
  • Stamp Set: Cozy Christmas (retired)
  • Accessories: Seasonal Decorative Masks, Brayer, Dimensionals, Scissors, and Adhesive
