Tag-A-Thon Part 4

Today another batch of Christmas tags but in a very different style to Saturday's offerings.

My base were already tags... received last year, where one side had the handwritten message and the other side was blank. I cut identical tag shapes from scraps of Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium 12x12 paper and die-cut Merry Christmas from the middle.

I placed Double sided tape behind the patterned paper tags, making sure to at least cover the die-cut space.

I cut the Merry Christmas die 3 times again, this time using scraps of white paper, 2 from glossy and one from standard cardstock.

Taking off the protective paper from the doubles sided adhesive, I then placed the patterned paper tag onto the handwritten side of the base tags adding the white die-cut into the "holes" to complete the inlaid technique.

The explanation sounds a lot more complex than it really is, I'm sure you get the idea just by looking at the photo. The great thing about this design is using up scraps...

Will there be a part 5 in my Tag-A-Thon?  Possibly... I'll just see how the mood takes me, so watch this space...

  1. Fabulous recycling of the tags and I love the G45 papers used Christine.

    Try getting friends to keep the tags from their bought clothes especially Jack Wills, Fat Face and Sweewe to name a few lovely ones.

    Check out this tag box I made to store them in here Fun to make as well.
