Christmas Tag Swap

I am participating in a swap where instead of making card fronts, we are making christmas tags. Each person has to make 10 + 1 tags, all identical or nearly so. In return we will get back 10 different tags. The extra tag goes to the hostess who is coordinating the swap.

We had to use stamp sets that were in the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue or in the holiday mini catalogue which was released on September 1. All products used had to be Stampin' Up.

I chose to use a set I had pre-ordered from the mini - Yuletide Christmas (set of 5). I cut the Kraft CS to 3 1/2 by 8 1/2 and folded it at 4 1/4. The edges of the tag were sponged with chocolate chip. The holly wreath was stamped directly onto the tag using old olive. The greeting was stamped onto Very Vanilla CS using markers. This was punched out using the scallop oval punch and it was adhered to the real red cardstock that was punched using the wide oval punch. I used stampin' dimensionals to adhere it to the centre of the wreath. I then tied a piece of the new Sleigh Bells Ribbon (also from the mini). There is also a cord (hemp twine) to attach the tag to a package or a gift bag.
