{Long Ago Christmas Tags}

Hello My Friends from wintry Michigan! My state was pelted on November 11th with more then 1 foot of snow where I live. This meant I did not get out of my place for 6 days because of the ice and danger of falling. It is still cold, but that will also fluctuate this week!

Today, I wanted to share six tags I made using Kraft card stock, pattern paper, computer phrases, buttons, foam snowflake embellishments, and Tim Holtz ephemera and paper dolls. All tied with a bit of seam binding at the top.

The tags measure 5 inches tall x 2 3/4 inches wide. I cut them out of card stock and layered patterned paper on top (after a smidgen had also been cut off.) I also ink the edges of the patterned paper before adhering it to the card stock. Next, add your ephemera, paper dolls, buttons, and snowflakes. I use a variety of glue for this (Zig 2 ways pens, Vario tabs, and my buttons are always set with E-6000.)

Finally, I add Christmas phrases I typed in Microsoft Word and cut into strips. A little dab of glue on back. My bows are made from seam binding ribbon.

These tags are blank on the back so sentiments can be written or you could place them on your Christmas tree as ornaments.

I have this set of six available in my Etsy shop:
