A gift box of Christmas tags - Stampin' Up Artisan blog hop

Welcome to another Stampin' Up Artisan blog hop! Every Thursday this talented global team of designers brings you a whole lot of inspiration - and today is no exception!

My own project this week is a box of Christmas tags - and before you all say that it's too early, just think how brilliant it would be to have these made, ready to decorate your parcels when it all starts getting REALLY busy! They make great gifts too and would sell well at all those upcoming Christmas fairs and fetes.

When making the tags, I stuck strips of washi tape across the card stock before punching. This gives nice clean lines to the top of the tags and is really quick and easy too.

The images and sentiments in Holiday Cheer are perfect for stamping on photos or on Project Life cards but they're also just the right scale for making tags. I love how versatile all the Project Life products are - they're definitely not just for scrapbooking!

The tags tuck neatly into one of the Tiny Treat boxes which I decorated in seconds with Santa & co washi tape. Don't you just love the colours of this tape?! If you're time-challenged like me, I highly recommend getting washi tape in ALL the Stampin' Up designs!

Stampin' Up's Two Tone trim is a joy! Use it as it is or separate it out to get different sizes and colours. I used the Vanilla part of mine for the tags and decorated the box with the Old Olive part.

I hope you enjoyed my box of Christmas tags today. There's loads to see from the rest of the Artisan Design Team too. Click the button below to hop over and see what the lovely Allison Okamitsu has been up to this week:

You may think I'm very smug doing these tags so early but the truth is, someone in my family has to be a bit organised! "So, how was Manchester?" said my scatty youngest son when I returned home on Sunday. I looked at him. "Er... I don't know," I said. "Because I've been in Cambridge!"

I'll have something fun to show you tomorrow using Stampin' Up's amazing blendabilities alcohol markers so do come back and visit me then!
