christmas tags and wraps

Tags are one of my favourite things to make for the holidays. After I have decided on a design, I find it relaxing making them over and over again.  I sometimes put together bits and pieces of it while waiting on my DD's ballet class. 

Here is the tag (and wrapping) for this year...

I used one of the dies from Papertrey's In The Meadow set. The tree is from Hero Arts and the To/From is from one of the Fillable Frames sets, also from Papertrey.

One of the things I ordered recently from Papertrey is the Get a Handle on It die.  I was not in love with it when it first came out but the more I see people use it, the more I feel I have to have it, lol.

I had plans of using it to make pretty packaging for the bath and soap products I love giving away for Christmas.  And I am quite pleased with the results. This will go to my DD's daycare, piano/ballet/gymnastics teachers.  

Here they are together... makes me happy looking at them.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I love your bags. I guess I must have slept through it when Papertrey Ink released this handle die. Now I want one.

  3. Looks like you're well on your way to finishing up preparations for Christmas. Your tag is so cute and looks like it would be quick to put together. Love the colourful 'handles' on your gift bags too!

  4. Love all your Christmas wrappings, bags and gift tags. The handles are a clever idea. Well done!
