Scraps for Christmas Cards #2

Granted for the first and second card from Scraps for Christmas Cards I didn't really use scraps because I cut from brand new 12X12 papers but just showing you could use your scraps for these card ideas or washi tape.

This card I also made a matching gift tag and decorated the envelope and inside of the card with the reaming scraps.

There are multiple versions of this card on You tube but if I had to pick the one that I went from it was this one by Carol Gatton.

Papers are from a New stack I just recently purchased from Micheal's using a 50% coupon called Sugar Plums, its a 12X12 Recollections paper pad with 180 sheets.
All the Strips are 1/2 of an inch wide.

I cut 5 different lenghts, this made it easier and fast by lining up all the paper in my trimmer. I cut 3 1/2, 3, 2 1/2, 2, and 1 1/2.
Assembly style, the base is a 3/4 inch wide by 1/2 inch tall and the star is a punch. I glued the star and trunk down first then started with the bottom and top layer then the inner two layers and finally the middle layer to help keep even spacing.
Mus ta gotten distracted because I have jumped right into the tag pictures.  I used my Cricut machine and the Winter Frolic Cartridge and on page 59 I cut the tag out in white at 3 inches and red at 3 1/4 inches, I re punched the hole with a hole punch after I glued the two together.
Used a red Sharpie marker to color the start gems that I most likely got from Micheal's or Hobby Lobby, sorry I didn't save the packaging.
Same strips as before just cut the lengths different 1 1/2, 1 1/4, 1, and 3/4 inches. then as you can see by my paper trimmer I set them down to cut them in half, again this makes it easier and I will get two tags from these papers.
The base is 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch.
Finished card, layered the white on the same red card stock as the trunk and the star.

Close up of added button and some crochet twine I got supper cheap at a thrift store.

Inside of card and I lined the bottom with extra patterned paper.

All three together, I added more pattered paper to the envelope.
I made 5 cards and 8 tags and still have paper left to do more of the same card.
