12 Tags for Christmas - June

Remember that iced coffee to-go cup on a plaid background that Tim made for the June tag this year? It was really fun, complete with a domed lid, straw and a place to put a gift card. What an imagination!

My Christmas version of that tag features another attempt at plaid but the color was off so I ran it under water (thank goodness tags are tough) and the plaid striping is now perhaps too subtle.

My ornament is just paper pasted on a scrap of 300 lb. watercolor paper (think thick) and the branch pattern was also cut from store-bought printed paper that I covered with Glossy Accents.

I used a strip of burlap ribbon to stamp my sentiment (Tim's Christmas Words) and I added bling with stars, Stickles, and a thin silver ribbon.

  1. Yes, I remember the coffee tag. Yours is fab!

  2. I really like the muted plaid. Not what you were going for, yet perfect effect. I love that chalkboard pad and made about 80 cards with it last year! YIKES!
