Some gift tags to share

Just a quick post to share a few Christmas tags--it's finally safe to blog about them!! I made these to decorate gift-card boxes for a number of recipients on my list.

The first one is also my entry for the December Christmas Spirit challenge at Flourishes. The challenge was to create a card with Santa in mind. I have a several Flourishes Christmas/winter stamps sets now, but none of them are Santa-related! I had to think hard about this one, but finally came up with this tag:


The sentiment is from the Paperwhites set from Flourishes. That cute Santa is a digital element from the Echo Park Everybody Loves Christmas Digital Element Pack available from Jessica Sprague. I loved working with these elements--just print (re-sizing for your project is so easy!) and trim--and ended up making a whole set of gift tags. Which worked perfectly because I had a whole stack of gift cards to give! I'm also entering this over at Paper Sundaes Challenge #100: Celebrate.

(This snowman tag uses more Flourishes stamps: the snowflakes and sentiment are from Warm Winter Wishes. My connection to Santa with this one? I was "playing Santa" when giving the gift attached to this tag!!)



I hope your Christmas was a fabulous one. Ours was the best!!

Thanks for dropping by,
Emily

These are great, love how you used ribbon and twine, great idea... and the star on the stop of the tree is perfect, I'm sure I have a star eyelet somewhere.
