Tag Trio Week Day 5 – by Chris Franco

It’s Day 5, the last day, of Tag Trio Week here on our blog. Not to say we won’t be sharing more tag projects this fall as we will, but this concludes our week long series.

Our Guest Designer, Chris Franco, created a fun set of Christmas tags using pastel colors that I personally LOVE for the holiday season. Take a look:

Chris combined an assortment of paper cutouts from the pad used, stamped images and sentiments and a variety of embellishments on these tags. Aren’t they fun!!!

The kraft tags she used are 4 x 2.75″. We have a lot of fun blank tags in stock (linked below).

I love the prints!

The tree is from the paper pad and the sentiment is stamped (white embossed) using our JAVA sentiment set.

A red felt flower is topped with a candy cane tied with red baker’s twine.

This regal buck is white embossed and is from our Farmhouse Christmas set as is the ‘merry’.

Chris also tucked in a cut up paper doily and tinted with ink a Puccini flower from Prima.

The jingle bells and red baker’s twine are the perfect topper!

The cutout is from the paper pad while the tree and ‘joy’ are again from our Farmhouse Christmas stamp set.

Again, Chris tucked in a portion of a doily and topped this one off with berries and narrow pink satin ribbon.

Fun tags to make and fun tags to receive on a gift package!

You can find Chris’s post on her blog here.
