Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas Day 1

This year I thought that I would join in with Tom Holtz with his 12 Days of Christmas Tags. I have never made tags before so this was fun. I had previously ordered the "Tag & Bookplate" die and was waiting for the "Tattered Pinecone" die to arrive. The tag die I bought to add tags to my mini albums (I like to make them with chipboard that thought it would work great. The pinecone die I bought because I thought it would be great for masculine items). This tag was a lot of fun to make.

I used my Cuttlebug to cut the die cuts with. I didn't have the embossed snow flake folder so I just punched some snow flakes the same color as the tag and glued them to make the raised effect. I did not have the "Noel" die so I used my Cricut to cut the grungeboard Noel from different cartridges and welded with my Gypsy. I ran it through the Xyron face down to apply the adhesive on the front, applied the glitter after tapping off the excess I placed it between some paper and ran it through the Cuttlebug to lock the glitter in (helps not to rub off so easily). I also don't have the "Tattered Banner" die so I just cut a strip of paper inked the edges and cut a "V" on each end.

This is a closeup of my pine cones, I think that they turned out nice. I followed Tim's video (very easy to follow).

  1. Lovely tag. Thank you for taking the time to explain how you made your tag - I really appreciate it :) I like how you made your background with same coloured cut outs and your glitter 'locking' tip is genius.
