Snowman Christmas Tag Set

Today I’m sharing a fun snowman Christmas tag set made using Rubbernecker Stamps Nested Tag Stitch, Snowman, Tiny Leaves and Deckle Hills.  These guys were fast and easy to make and will look great on Christmas presents. They also make the perfect gift when you need just a little something to give to a friend.  I gave a set of Christmas tags to my boss several years in a row.  She loved the tags and decorated a special small tree with all the tags I’d given her over the years.

Come see how I made this snowman Christmas tag set.

The Tag and Base

  • Cut the tags using light blue cardstock and the snow layer using white cardstock.
  • Use the tag to cut the snow layer to create the perfect fit and matching stitch lines.
  • Apply a piece of mounting tape to the back of the snow layer and attach it to the tag.

Come see how I made this funny snowman Christmas tag.

The Snowmen

  • Cut three snowmen sets using white cardstock.  Note:  I only used the small and medium sections for these snowmen.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne.
  • Use red and black cardstock to cut the top hat, toboggan hat, earmuffs and scarves.
  • Cut the eyes and mouth using black cardstock and orange cardstock to cut the nose.
  • Assemble the snowman parts and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Embellish each snowman with tiny holly leaves and a single red berry and attach them using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this fun snowman Christmas tag.

Assemble the Snowman Christmas Tags

  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of each snowman and attach it to the tag.
  • Use Nuvo Crystal Drops to apply the falling snow on the tag and snowmen.
  • Apply red Stickles to the berries to add a touch of sparkle.

Come see how I made this cute snowman Christmas tag.

Here are the dies used to make my tags.

Handmade Christmas Tags

My project today is a colorful group of handmade Christmas tags made using dies and stamps by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I had so much fun making these tags and think they are a perfect embellishment for gifts and are cute enough to use as ornaments on the Christmas tree.  I’ll list the dies and stamps that I used right above each tag for easy reference.  I used the Nested Tag Stitch for the base and frame for each tag.

Die Cut Poinsettia Tags

Good Monday morning.  I have three elegant die cut poinsettia tags to share with you today.  I always love adding decorative and unique tags to presents going to those “extra special” people on my gift list.  I have fond memories of creating special wrapped packages for my parents and mother-in-law.  Both my mother and mother-in-law used to say they didn’t want to destroy the wrapping by opening the present.  LOL!  Each of my tags was made using the smallest frame from the Rectangle Combo die paired with  Poinsettia #1 and Poinsettia #2, Holly, Greenery and Berries

 

Come see how I made this pretty die cut poinsettia tags set.

The Tag Base and Frames

  • Cut the 3.75″ x 2.50″ tag bases using pink and white cardstock .
  • Cut the frames using white cardstock.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frames and attach to the tag base.

Come see how I made this lovely die cut poinsettia tag.

The Poinsettias

Follow the directions below for each individual poinsettia.  Check out my step by step poinsettia tutorial if you would like to see how I form and assemble my poinsettia.  The tutorial was done with a different die set but the steps are the same.

  • Cut the smallest flower section once using red or pink.
  • Cut the second smallest flower section twice using red or pink.
  • Cut the second smallest flower section twice using green cardstock.
  • Cut the tiny flower sections using yellow cardstock and form them using the small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Apply Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick ink to the pink poinsettia sections using mini applicators. (I didn’t apply ink to the red poinsettia)
  • Lay the poinsettia sections face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the large round stylus.
  • Lay the poinsettia sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the centers using the small tipped stylus.
  • Hint:  I layer two or three molding pads together so I can push down deeply on the flower centers to create more shape and dimension.
  • Attach the poinsettia sections together using glossy accents. Off set the sections to create a natural flower.
  • Attach the green flower sections to the bottom of each flower to create the green leaf base.
  • Attach the tiny yellow flowers in the center of each poinsettia using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this elegant die cut poinsettia tag.

The Holly, Berry Branches and Greenery

  • Cut the greenery, holly sections and berry branches using green cardstock.
  • Cut the berries using red and pink cardstock.
  • Use the jewel picker to pick up the berries and attach them to the base of the branches and holly leave using glossy accents.
  • Gently form the holly leaves using your fingers to add dimension.

Assemble The Arrangements

  • Attach the poinsettia to the tag base using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the holly, berry branches and greenery under the poinsettia and attach in place with glossy accents.
  • Finish the tags by applying sparkle to the berries and flower centers using the Spectrum Noir clear overlay pen.

Come see how I made this pretty die cut poinsettia tag.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut poinsettia tags.  I think they are so elegant and festive and will add a special touch to each package.  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great day.

Die Cut Christmas Tags

Good Monday morning.  Today I’m sharing masculine and feminine die cut Christmas tags using several of the newly released dies by Rubbernecker Stamps

For the first tag I created a pretty outdoor wildlife scene using the Nested Tag set, 3 Pine TreesPine Tree Forest, Tree in Oval, Small Birds, Greenery and Wildlife Set.

Come check out how I made this masculine die cut Christmas tag.

The Tree Background and Tag Frame

  • Cut the tag using white cardstock.
  • Secure the tag in the MISTI and stamped the tree three times using Peeled Paint ink.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass to the sky area of the tag using an ink blending tool.
  • Cut the tag frame using the two largest dies and red cardstock.
  • Cut the tree portion of the Tree in Oval using green cardstock.
  • Cut the Pine Tree Forest using green cardstock.
  • Hand cut two snow sections using white cardstock and deckle scissors.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the red tag frame and attach the front snow layer and large tree.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the tag frame, attach the second snow layer and attach the whole frame section to the tag base.

The Buck, Birds and Greenery

  • Cut a set of greenery using green cardstock and use a tiny brush to apply white gesso to the tips and set aside to dry.
  • Cut the buck using white cardstock.
  • Color the buck using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink and mini applicators. Check out my coloring die cut animals tutorial if you would like to see how I apply the ink to the buck.
  • Cut a section of birds using red cardstock.
  • Cut three or four trees off the Pine Tree Forest and tuck it in behind the snow layer and attach with mounting tape.
  • Attach the buck in behind the first snow layer and attach to the base using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Attach pieces of white tipped greenery in behind the snow layer and around the buck and attach with glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching the birds using small pieces of mounting tape.

 

Come check out how I made this beautiful die cut Christmas tag.

For my second tag I used the Nested Tags, Poinsettia #2, Holly and Magic of Christmas980-11 Magic of Christmas.

The Tag Frames and Base

  • Cut a tag frame using red cardstock and the two largest tags in the set.
  • Cut a tag frame using red cardstock and the largest and middle sized tags in the set.
  • Cut the largest tag using white cardstock.
  • Secure the white tag in the MISTI , stamp the sentiment using gold embossing powder and heat with heat gun.
  • Apply double stick tape around the wider tag frame and attach it over the white tag layer.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the thinner tag and attach it over the matted tag layer.

The Poinsettia and Holly

  • Cut the poinsettia layers using red cardstock. I only used the three smaller of the four flowers.
  • Cut the second largest poinsettia two times using green cardstock.
  • Cut the tiny flowers using yellow cardstock.
  • Place the flower layers face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the large round stylus head.
  • Place the flower layers face up and push down in the centers using a smaller stylus head.
  • Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents.  Make sure to offset each one so no layers are laying directly over the other.
  • Attach the tiny yellow flower in the center of the poinsettia using glossy accents.
  • Cut two sections of holly using green cardstock and the berries using red cardstock.
  • Apply glossy accents to the berry bases and pick up the red berries using a jewel picker and attach to the base.
  • Attach the poinsettia to the tag base using glossy accents.
  • Gently form the holly leaves with your fingers and tuck them under the poinsettia and attach with glossy accents.
  • Apply sparkle to the poinsettia petals and holly berries using a clear overlay pen.
  • Apply yellow stickles to the tiny flower center.
  • Check out my poinsettia tutorial if you would like to see how I form my flowers.  I used a different set for the tutorial but the concept is the same.

Do You Like My New Format?

I would love to hear from you about how you like the bullet point tutorial format I have been using the last several weeks.  Is it helpful?  Did you like the paragraph format better?  I find the bullet point format easier for me to keep track of all the steps as I write my post.  But the main reason I share on my blog is to help inspire others.  I want the format I use to be the most helpful.  I would sure appreciate you sharing your opinion.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have enjoyed see my two die cut Christmas tags. I had lots of fun making them.
