Lawnscaping Challenge #23: Tags and Gift Bags

*This is my second post for today. To see my card for the current DeNami challenge, please click here or scroll down on my main blog page. Thanks!*

Hi there! It’s the first Monday of the month, so it’s time to share my card with you for the next Lawnscaping Challenge. Today, we’re focusing on Tags and Treat Bags. This is such a natural fit for early December. I can’t wait to see what everyone makes to play along!

I decided to make tags for Christmas presents for my family and roommates. First, I started out with my favorite die set to turn into tags – Labels Four Nestabilities from Spellbinders – and cut several shapes out of some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used an exacto knife to just trim off the very bottom parts of the die cut and punched a whole with my Crop-A-Dile through the entire stack and once. Viola! Christmas tags ready to decorate.

Next, I colored all of the tags with the fab colors from the Winter Seasonal Distress Inks and a blending tool (plus Fired Brick, Pine Needles and Black Soot around the corresponding colors for a little bit of depth) and stamped out these cute snowmen and their accessories with the Making Frosty Friends stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I colored everything with copics (see supply list for the colors used), cut them out and adhered them down. Easy, simple and perfect for Christmas gifts!

To top everything off, I wrote the names of the recipients either directly on the snowmen or on labels (punched with my favorite EK Success Photo Labels punch) and added some Lemon Drop twine at the top. The little bow is adhered with Glossy Accents. :) Here’s a close-up of the two types of tags:

  1. First… Nesties to make tags? Brilliant! I am so going to do this!
    Second… Fab job showing off the seasonal distress inks! I finally used festive berries last night. LOVE!
    Third… I just love these snowmen, your tags really look like a set by putting snowmen on all of them. And I adore the idea of writing the names directly on them. The yellow twine tops them off perfectly and I love that you popped them up with foam. Perfection!

    I’m gonna make tags with names as well, to put them on the table, so everyone knows where they sit. Why can’t I think of using nestabilities for tags (although, I have a tag die). Can’t wait to start! Thanks Britta!

  3. I love these! How cute! Love that you used nesties for the tags and am in love with each name plate…… Awesomeness my friend.

    Very cute! Very creative to alter the nesties for the tags. The names that are written on the snowman looks really cool…almost like a stamp.
