Christmas Tags Using The Cricut

  What a weekend! I was busy in my craft room almost the whole time getting things finished up for this week's craft fair. I think I got everything ready that I wanted to - or at least a little bit of everything. This will kind of be a testing ground for me to see what quantities I will need in the future, providing I decide to participate again. I'm sure it will be great & I will want to do it again!

  Here's one of the goodies I created...

Christmas Gift Tags


I used my Cricut for these babies & was able to make a lot relatively quickly.

1. Cut out tags from cardstock 
(I used the Birthday Bash cartridge)
2. Cut a square for a background from patterned paper or sheet music 
(I used George & Basic Shapes cartridge)
3. Cut embellishment of your choice from cardstock
(Holly is from Winter Wonderland cartridge & Star is from George & Basic Shapes)


4. Fancy up your embellishment with some glitter 
(I used Stickles).  Let Dry! :)
5. Tie a length of twine or ribbon to your tag
6. You're done!



Make a large batch of them to go with your Christmas decor & use them in your Christmas wrapping this season.


 I hope you stay tuned for a lot more Christmas wrapping ideas, crafts, cards, & recipes all the way up until Christmas!
