Dropping off baked goods at the holidays is a welcome tradition. Why not add a festive tag to go along with the goodies? In today’s post, I’ll show you how to make some pretty farmhouse style gift tags. All you need is any kind of pine branch die cut or even some pretty holly leaf die cuts. For the tag bases, I used Paper Essentials white tags in the large size. A pop of bright, plaid ribbon and some glue dots along with a festive sentiment completes the supply list. I used a sentiment from the Stephanie Barnard/Sizzix Fall Pudgies stamp and die set.
I wanted to create a “weathered” look to my white tag, so I blended some Weathered Wood Distress Oxide ink along the sides of my tags. This gives that perfect, soft gray detail that is so popular right now.
In order to make my greenery stand out, I first die cut it, then covered the fronts with Versamark Ink.
I heat embossed all the pieces using holographic embossing powder. This is a clear powder with just a little bit of shimmer for that frosty look.
For my greenery, I re-dipped portions of them in Versamark, then heat embossed those with white embossing powder for that snow-covered look.
I attached all the pieces to my tag using glue dots. These are secure and allow the greenery to “stick up” in a more natural fashion.
For a final pop of color, I added a little bow and attached it with another glue dot. These tags are easy to make assembly-style so you’ll have lots to add to all your holiday goodies. Thanks so much for joining me today!
