Five for Friday: gift tags

For this week's Five for Friday, I thought I'd share five gift tags that I made this week.

#1: I had a kraft snowflake diecut left over from this layout, so I thought I'd add it to a tag. It was diecut and stamped with PTI's Snowflake Medley. I layered it on a PTI tag sale 7 die cut and added a stamped sentiment (from LLH:Holidays, heat embossed with white embossing powder), a button and some baker's twine.

2. This next tag (as well as the three that follow) are all made using this week`s Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Patchwork Die-Cuts. I decided to use some cardstock that would coordinate with my wrapping paper and patchwork another tag sale 7 diecut. I stamped the assembled tag with Versamark and PTI's BB:Herringbone, then I diecut a PTI Seeing Stars die from the centre, backed it on another tag and added another stamped sentiment (from PTI's Fillable Frames #9) heat embossed with white embossing powder, button and baker's twine.

3. I used the patchwork diecut left over from #2 to make another tag (tag sale #5). I stamped the same sentiment, but this time in Hawaiian Shores ink.

4. Since I had left over pieces from tag #2, I made another one, this time diecutting a Christmas Poinsettia die and running the tag through my Big Shot with PTI's Simple Stripes IP. I used the same sentiment as tags #2 & #3 and added three little buttons.

5. And for this tag, (you guessed it!), I used the left over poinsettia diecut. I stamped some boughs from PTI's bells and boughs and a sentiment from PTI's Holiday Tags 2012. I layered another poinsettia diecut out of vellum and another button.

I think I'm pretty much done my Christmas crafting, except for the placecard craft I have in mind for the supper I'm hosting on the 26th. How about you?

Thanks for looking!

Um, are those your REAL presents, that you actually give away?! Hahaha ... they look like they're magazine props : ) I'd love to see a photo of them all together under the tree, I bet it's magical.

Nope, not one present wrapped here. I'm a deadline gal ... it's always the night before : )

Leigh, I just love these. I wish I'd had them on my gifts this year! They match our tree and the stockings I made this year perfectly.
