Holiday Tags

I know, it's only the end of October, but if I don't start thinking about the holidays now, it will come and go before I know what hit me! LOL!

When I received the new Stamp a Sweet Impression sets by Taylored Expressions, I knew these where going to be the perfect stamps to use for gift giving. I used the wonderful papers and ribbons that come in the Christmas Key Ingredient kit, along with white Tag Treat tags, to make tags to tie onto homemade treats.

I covered a metal tin that I found at Michaels and then created the Holiday Tags label using an oval Nestability and JustRite Stamps Curlz font. Once I stamped the words in red Memento ink, I used my trusty Copic Airbrush System to add some green shading.


Now for the tags. My favorite part! :)
I covered each of the white tags with various papers and cardstock from the Key Ingredients kit, added a happy little Holiday Cuppie and a yummy sentiment and then finished each with buttons and bling and either a ribbon or embroidery floss for tieing to the homemade treat.


These came together so easily! Plus, I have enough paper in my Kit to make a bunch more!

I wonder if my family and friends will love the tag more than the treat? LOL!
