Tiny Christmas Tags

It's challenge day for the ladies at Lizzie Anne Designs! We had such a fun challenge this month - we all made holiday gift tags. I spent my morning wrapping Christmas presents and realized I needed more small tags for itty bitty presents - like Blu rays, kids books, Zhu Zhu hamsters, lol. So I got out my collection of Simply Singles stamps to see what I could come up with!

I started with this adorable Elf. I just love how cute he is! I colored him with Copics and put him up on pop dots. The cream panel is actually a pre-made, store bought tag. I sponged it, paper pierced it, and added some faux stitching. I cut out the green panel to go behind it, and then added the ribbon. I used a sentiment from Love & Joy Labels to top off the tag.
Next I used the Nativity single, paired with some Nesties. I off centered the stamp on the main panel so I could add the circles on the left side. The image is colored with Copics. This was a really quick tag to make, and I'm thrilled with the way it came out.  I like the idea of a horizontally oriented tag. It's different :)
For my last tag I used the Tall Snowman single. He's mounted on a vellum tag that I stamped with snowflakes from the Love & Joy Labels set. I added a sentiment from that set on another vellum tag, and adhered them together. I added a bit of floss for color. I really like how small this tag is - it's perfect for a little hostess gift, or a teacher's gift.

Be sure to head over to the Lizzie Anne Designs blog today to see what other fabulousness the team came up with! And when you are ready to shop, all of the holiday stamps in the store are 30% off - so stock up now!

I love these, Taylor. They are all so cute. I especially love the idea of using the metal rimmed tags as a base. I have so many of these in my stash, that you have inspired me to use a few up this holiday season!

Taylor these are AWESOME!!! Love the vellum..and I just noticed the snowflakes on it. Very cool!! I totally forgot about that cute little elf! I need to go pull him out so I can use him on cards this season. He is looking just as uber cute as can be on your tag!
