This week I'm featuring gift tags. I have four different tags using a variety of products and techniques. I hope you like them and will give my ideas a try.

From let to right. Snow Much Fun, Sweet Season, Merry Winter and Merry Christmas tags.

Snow Much Fun Tag

After I assembled the tag I used Sticky Strip to adhere the Silver Glimmer Paper to the Whisper White card stock and colored in the snowman with Stampin' Markers; Tempting Turquoise, Cherry Clobber, Garden Green and Peach Parfait.
After adhering the snowman to the Bashful Blue tag I used Crystal Effects and added Mica Flakes to look like snow

Sweet Season Tag

When punching out the Snowflake I turned the Silver Glimmer paper upside down so I could see where I was punching. It made a cleaner cut that way and it saves on paper when I know just where to place the punch. I used the Ticket Corner Punch on the corners of the Whisper White card stock
Underneath the snowflake punch is a stamp from the Sweet Season Stamp set. I stamped in Real Red Ink and punch it out using the Scalloped Circle Punch. This picture doesn't do the Silver Glimmer paper justice; the photo below shows off the sparkle better

Merry Winter Tag

Using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch I punched out the center of the circle die cut. I added 8 hearts from the Owl Builder punch and made a bow using 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon and attached to the outside of the cup using SNAIL Adhesive

Using a circle Treat cup I stamped the phrase on Whisper White card stock using Marina Mist ink and cut the circle  a little bigger than the inside edge of the Circle Treat cup
I added some Mica Flakes. Removed the adhesive liner and attached the cup to the tag

Merry Christmas Tag

After the Top Note was embossed, I used Crumb Cake Stampin' Ink and a Sponge Dauber and went over the entire top note to give it a vintage look. I stamped Merry Christmas in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock and colored the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink and a Sponge Dauber. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to attached the Merry Christmas banner to the top note. For the mittens, I tied the cord to make it shorter and cut off the excess. I used my glue gun to attached the mittens to the top note. Crumb Cake Seam Binding was crumpled up and then tied to the top note after punching a hole with the
Crop-a-Dile punch.
