DIY GIft Tags - No Peeking Christmas Tags

Hi! It's Sandie here today and I am sharing how I make my tags that I use on Christmas gifts


Plain White card
Stamps - Waltzingmouse Stamps : Santa's Coming to Town
Distress Inks - Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy
Tags Dies
Blending tool or sponge dauber
Die cutting machine


Using the cuttlebug or similar die cutting machine cut all 3 tags, lining them up largest to smallest.


To get the most out of your card, cut the next 3 tags from from smallest to largest.


Place the die back over the tags and sponge some Antique Linen distress ink onto the card with a blending tool.


When you remove the die, there is a white border all around.


Taking the Antique Linen again, stamp Santa silhouette


Taking the Brushed Corduroy ink, stamp the sentiment.


Punch a hole at the top of the tag.


Thread ribbon through the hole, ensuring the tails are long enough to tie around the gift.


Make the smaller tags using a similar design and thread twine through a smaller hole at the top of them.

The tags are lovely, but I don't like the sentiment. In English we don't peek, we peep, or look. We always used to write "Don't open until Christmas Day " or whatever the special day was.
