Christmas Tags - The Stamp Simple Ribbon Store

Hello everyone!

I do hope you all are enjoying your weekend and not tied down due to this icy storm that has rolled in.  The boys and I are enjoying some time at home this weekend, which we hardly do because we always have somewhere to be! But I think by Monday, I will be ready for a change of scenery outside of my home and perhaps even some adult conversation! :)

This is my last post as the Guest Designer for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  I truly enjoyed every moment creating for Sharon with some of the beautiful products she carries in her store.  Thank you so much Sharon for having me and sharing my creations. 

My final project are some tags I created using more the Anna Griffin collection of Yuletide Greetings.  This collection is just so beautiful and elegant.  I can't wait to add these tags to some gifts this year. 

For this first tag, I used Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles to cut out the heavyweight cardstock for the base.  I then layered the center with some of the Yuletide patterned paper and used the coordinating 3-D Yuletide sentiment stickers for the main focal image.  The tag was completed with some Lipstick Red seam binding ribbon and gold beaded cording I had.  I used some jute twine cord for the hanger.

Using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles, I made one of the patterned papers the base of the tag.  (By the way, if you have never used Anna Griffin paper pads, they are wonderful in terms of stiffness.  They are a perfect weight to use as a base, like I did here, and for layering on a card.)  Using another die from the Radiant Rectangles collection, I cut out the oval and ornate center, which I layered and popped up using some Therm-o-web foam squares.  I then finished it with the Yuletide 3-D sentiment stickers and some Kaisercraft rhinestones. I then added a bow using some Moss seam binding ribbon. Again, Jute twine cord for the hanger.

I used the 3-D Art stickers for this tag to be the focal point.  I cut the base out with my Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles and a piece of the patterned paper with my Spellbinders circles.  I added the 3-D art sticker and some seam binding ribbon in cream, which I doubled bowed, wet, and dried with the heat gun, before finishing it with a button, beaded cord, and jute cording.  The hanger on this tag was more of the gold beaded cord. 

Hopefully I was able to inspire you to make some fun and easy tags to add to your gifts this year. Be sure to check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store for this collection and new collections Sharon offers.  Her inventory is wonderful!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

  1. I love these tags, Deborah, just as much as I've loved every project you've done for us. Your work is outstanding and so very much appreciated! Thank you SO much for joining us this last month or two! It's been a pleasure to have you!

  2. Deborah, your tags are stunning! I think I like the first one looks a little like a porcelain ornament. In fact, I'd be tempted to use every one of these tags as ornaments, instead! :)


I love hearing from you...Thank you for taking the time to leave your kind comments!
