Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge—Holiday Tags


Hi, everyone, I’m back with this month’s Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this month’s challenge: Holiday Tags. All of the details about the challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


You can’t have too many gift tags, can you? Handmade gift tags are a gift themselves—a bonus to accompany the actual gift. I have two very different tags for you today. First, I created a small scene on a Tag Builder Blueprints 4 Die-namics base using Scenic Snow Globe Die-namics.


The sentiment is from Snow Globe Sentiments and I finished off with some ribbon and baker’s twine.

My second tag is a see-through shaker tag. I cut Tag Builder Blueprints 6 twice, inserted a Circle Shaker pouch in each, added 6mm Winter Snow Shaker Mix and Silver Shimmer seed beads, then glued the two halves together.


The sentiment is also from Snow Globe Sentiments and was heat embossed with Silver Zing! Glitter Embossing Powder on Cornflower card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. I added a Let It Snowflake Too, cut from Silver Sparkle card stock and the grommet cut from the same. I finished off with some crinkled seam binding from my stash and baker’s twine.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the
MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $20 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
