Christmas Tags at Crafting with Dragonflies

Our challenge this fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies is Christmas Tags. We want you to make a large tag, roughly 15 cm long and around 6 cm wide.

I used a Tim Holtz tag as my base, and made two matching gift tags on which I clipped a pack of instant cocoa.

I started by stamping the bow, colored it, and covered it with Molotow masking liquid. Then I stamped the mug in green on top of it, and removed the masking liquid with an eraser. I cut the mug shape from masking paper and used it to mask both sides. Then I stamped & inked to my heart's delight! The "Fa-La-La" is a rubber stamp that I colored with Marvy embossing markers & heat-embossing with clear powder for a resist effect. The snowflakes are a large stamp & are heat-embossed with glittery white. The rest of the stamps are from sets that came free with a magazine. The Santa clips were premade. For the back, I masked the mug again to serve as a message section.

I had tons of fun getting messy & making these, and can't wait to spread the smiles! Hope you'll join us for this very special challenge.

  1. What a great little gift tag, and nothing like those Lake o' Lakes flavored cocoas, and you have my favorite one attached "raspberry". I haven't looked for these in the store in a long time, but I'm going on the hunt now. Thanks for sharing your tags with us at Double Trouble and using Your Stuff that works with the Mood Board. Please come back for more fun pairs and share at Double Trouble.

  2. Thanks for sharing your tags with us at Double Trouble. I love the santa suit colored pin attaching your cocoa! I agree with those Land O Lakes Cocoas, but I'm a French Vanilla fan.

  3. Love your fabulous tags and love that they turn into a gift too.
