MFT November Creative Construction With Blueprints–Holiday Tags


Adding a handmade touch is a wonderful way to personalize your thoughtful gifts. Stocking up on holiday tags is a fun, quick, and easy way to prepare for the gift giving season that is about to commence. Join us this month as we look at holiday tags featuring Blueprints.


I used Tag Builder Blueprints 1 Die-namics for the base of both of my tags. I’ve always loved the traditional design of this tag and it’s my go to. Both are cut from Kraft card stock but the similarity ends there. First up, I added falling snow using Snowfall Stencil and molding paste. I added a strip of Kraft Collection – Solid Stripes Paper Pack cut with a die from the set, Stylish Snowflakes Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and Silver Sparkle card stock, and Peaceful Words Die-namics, cut from Silver Sparkle card stock.


My second tag sports a rosette (I’d forgotten how much fun they are to make!) made from
Kraft Collection – Solid Stripes Paper Pack with more Stylish Snowflakes Die-namics cut from Wild Cherry card stock and Kraft card stock. I stamped the word “CHRISTMAS” from Hand Lettered Holiday with Wild Cherry dye ink and added part of Merry Christmas Die-namics, also cut from Wild Cherry dye ink. Both tags were finished off with some matching baker’s twine.


And that’s it from me today! Thanks SO much for stopping by! See you soon!
