Simple Christmas Tags – Day 1

Hello! Hope you all had a great weekend. We had a quiet one enjoying some gorgeous Zurich sunshine. We were crossing our fingers for trick or treaters after spending lots of time carving pumpkins and teaching our 2 year old about Halloween, but no luck this year!

This week is all about tags. I love making tags for the holidays – I like to keep them simple so I can turn out a bunch in time for Hannukah & Christmas. I usually stick to stamping and try to find nice tags to cut out on my Silhouette so I’m not constantly cranking away on my die cutter. I have to say though, my favorite designs are still my die cuts, so inevitably I do a lot of those as well.

Today’s tag is cut from the Silhouette and I just love all the options it provides. It has a fold-over top so you can customize the tag in so many different ways. For today’s tag, I stamped the top with the Hero Arts tiny stars background stamp in gold. I kept the rest of the tag super simple, stamping a bold poinsettia and various sentiments. I adore this poinsettia from Waltzingmouse Stamps  – I’ve been using it for years.


The sentiments are a mix of Papertrey Ink sentiments from past Christmas sets. They do a lot of small ones geared towards tags that work so well in small spaces. The ribbon is also Papertrey Ink, and the lovely gold & cream twine is The Twinery.

I am entering these tags in the current Hero Arts challenge.


Thanks for stopping by and see you soon for my next instalment of Simple Christmas Tags!

    Great tags! I love that rich, true red and the gold and the bit of stitching adds so much!
