Tags of Christmas Day 3

Day 3 of my Tags for Christmas may seem like a time consuming one but the only thing that takes time is cutting out the pine cones for added dimension but can be left out and can have a flat tag.

 I am using some Stampin UP ink in pretty traditional Christmas colors Soft Suede, Baked Brown Sugar, Cherry Cobbler, and Old Olive.
 I am also using a pack of 24 pre cut with holes cream color on front and white on back tags that I purchase at Micheal's.

They were .99 cents on sale plus I was able to use our Military discount so they were even cheaper which makes resale at craft shows and fairs even better.

Original $1.50
 I am using a circle die and a light pencil mark to make a half circle for my wreath.

For my test tag I realized I needed to let my ink dry at least a couple of hours before erasing the pencil line, it may be dry to the touch but it does need drying time.
 Because the front was a specific cream color and the pack came with 24 tags I stamped more pine cones and used the cordinating dies to cut them out using my Big Shot.

I am using Lawn Fawn stamp and die set called Deck the Halls.

You can easily leave the wreath flat and it will look just as pretty.
 Assembly line style.
 Using the ends of my Stampin UP dimensionals for the pine cones.
 I decided to add some Red Stickles to the berry leaves that I had already stamped in Cherry Cobbler.

After the Stickles were dry it was ok to erase the pencil lines.
Finished Tags

 I used two different Micheal's ribbons from my stash cut at 15 inches long.
