Christmas Tag #1

Hello friends!
Today is the beginning of my 'Twelve Days of Christmas' tag series!
All of my tags will have a similar theme of the colors red and pink!

Here is tag number one!

First, start by printing and cutting out this sweet vintage image.

I am using a manila tag that measures 3" x 6". I inked it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to look aged. 2 strips of red cardstock punched with a Martha Stewart border punch are glued to the ends of a piece of scrapbook paper by October Afternoon and glued to the center of the tag. Glue the image onto the tag but don't put glue all the way to the edges as you will be tucking in embellishments under the edge of her dress.

I cut a white paper scallop and adhered a scalloped sticker from October Afternoon to the center. Add a Christmas sentiment to the center and glue scallop to the tag, tucking underneath her dress and arm.

To add more detail, I used red glitter glue to outline the inner scallop. I recommend Martha Stewart's Glitter glue.

I then took mini adhesive white pearls and added them around the red scallop.

I took a snowflake button (found at Hobby Lobby) tied with a pink bow and glued it between the dress and scallop. Another strip of red cardstock punched with a border punch was added along the bottom. I also used a white gel pen to add stitch lines around the edge of the tag.

A sparkly little chipboard poinsettia finishes off the bottom of the tag.

Add a bow to the top of the tag to finish it.
I made my bow by dying seam binding with Spun Sugar distress ink.
If you would like some of the seam binding but don't want to make it yourself, check out our etsy shop where I have listed this some in our Sugar Kissed colors.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial!

Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey
