A friend asked if I could make some Christmas tags, so these are my first of the season. I like using punches for tags, because they’re so quick to make. The tree punch used here is retired, but SU has a really cute tree punch in the current catalog, the Pine Tree punch.
I cut white thick cardstock into 4.25 x 2 inch pieces, used the Delightful Tag Topper punch for the scalloped end. I glued a 2×2 inch piece of designer paper to the other end, and rounded those corners with the Detailed Trio punch. I cut thin strips of Glimmer Paper and green cardstock, ran a thin bead of glue along the top of the designer paper, and glued them down, trimming excess from the sides with scissors. I punch the tree from Glimmer Paper and popped it up with dimensional foam. I stamped a sentiment on a thin strip of white, and cut a cardstock mat slightly wider. After gluing that and trimming it, I folded a piece of ribbon in half, pushed the folded edge through the hole from front to back, and drew the cut ends up through the loop.
Tags make nice gifts for coworkers with a roll of coordinating wrapping paper. Give it a try!
