Are you ready to see my project???? 
 Today I've put together some super fab Christmas themed tags to display on a mantle. I've attached them to a chicken wire backed picture frame. They can easily be removed and attached to gifts, or hung on the tree as ornaments too!




Joy Tag:


1) Cut tag shape from a piece of Authentique's Peaceful collection. Distress edges.

3) Create "Puff ball" for the snowman's hat from The Twinery's Maraschino twine. Glue in place using Tombow adhesives.
4) Cover snowman's scarf in liquid pearls. Glue snowman to tag using Tombow adhesives.
5) Punch tag using Fiskar's Tag punch from Authentique's Festive collection. Distress edges.
6) Punch ornament using Fiskar's ornament punch from kraft paper. Distress edges. Stamp with Hampton Arts stamp
7) Layer punched pieces on top of tag and under flower from UmWowStudio.
8) Finish with Joy letters.


Merry Tag:
1) Cut tag using Authentique's Festive collection. Distress edges.
2) Remove the middle section of the Christmas Tree ornament from Globecraft & Piccolo. Distress. Dot the tree with liquid pearls to represent ornaments and glitter the bottom section like snow. Glue to tag using Tombow adhesives.
3)  Tie a knot in a 5 inch section of May Arts ribbon and The Twinery's Maraschino twine. Glue to tag.
4) Finish with Merry letters.


Noel Tag:
1) Cut tag from Authentique's Festive collection. Distress edges.
1) Remove bits from by Globecraft & Piccolo. Distress edges. Glue to tag.
2) Punch two ornaments from Authentique's Peaceful collection using Fiskar's Ornament Punch. Stamp punches with Hampton Art stamp. Distress edges. Glue to tag using Tombow adhesives.
3) Finish tag with wooden letters.
