Global Stamping Friends - Seasonal Fun

Welcome to the December GSF Blog Hop! This month's theme is Seasonal Fun. We are a group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators who Love what we do and share what we Love.

In the last couple of years I started a new tradition in my family, Handmade Tags. We get together at my house and spend the afternoon making gift tags. We have only 1 rule, use a pencil to write on the tags so that they can be reused (if they want to reuse them, sometimes they just want to keep them).

I even made a box to keep them in. For the set I am sharing with you today I used the Farmhouse Christmas Stamp Set,  Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (DSP), the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, the Christmas Traditions Punch box set, the Stitched Shapes Framelits, the Berries Die is from the Flourish Thinlits, the 5/8" Striped Burlap Trim, the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, the Festive Farmhouse Twine, and the Scalloped Tag Top Punch, and the Sprig Punch. For the cardstock I used Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla Thick, and Shaded Spruce, Old Olive, Oh and the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper.

Tags - 2" x 4"
DSP Layer - 1 3/4" x 3 1/4"
Corrugated Banner - 1 1/2" x 3 1/8"
Stitched Shape Square (2nd smallest) - 2" x 2"

  1. Beautiful! That would make a great gift! Good idea about using pencil so they can be reused.

  2. AWESOME Idea to make gift tags ahead of time and who would have thought to only use a pencil so that the tags could be reused!!!
