Christmas Chipboard Tags
December 16, 2022
Hello Craft Friends!
Dana here! I'm back on the Clear Scraps blog to share some Christmas handmade tags. I love to include a tag inside my handmade Christmas cards. These tags are not only fun but easy to create. I used the newest Clear Scraps chipboard embellishments as the main focal point on each tag. Aren't these cute?
I'll link each chipboard embellishment as we go along. I used a variety of scrapbook papers in my stash to create my tags. That especially helps my pocketbook and uses up all my scrap papers too! I will be inking all my papers using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Gathered Twigs. I think they really makes your images pop!
To make my tags, I cut 3 tags measuring 3 & 1/2 x 7 inches, using leftover cardboard from a cereal box. I also like to save my packaging both the Clear plastic and card packaging. It's a great way to use them and saves money. I rounded the bottom corners using my corner punch. And punched a hole on the top of each tag. See photo:
Set your tags aside for now. Take your chipboard embellishments and cut apart from the frame. I like to save the other chipboard frames for future projects.
Bell bulbs: Click here
I took some Gold acrylic paint and applied to the top/sides areas on each ornament including the hangers. Then on the round bell bulb, I applied some red chunky glitter on the top and bottom areas on the bulb. In the middle section I applied some Martha Stewart Florentine gold glitter. On the bell I applied some Moss green glitter on the bell. For the bow on top, I applied some tacky glue and sprinkled some red flock and gently pressed down in place shaking off any excess flock. Set aside to dry throughly.
Taking one of the tags, I cut and glued my patterned paper to the tag base. I fussy cut 2 layers of a poinsettia image and layered over my matching image towards the bottom of my tag. I curled the edges of my petals before gluing. Applied foam dots on the back of my bell bulbs and adhered onto my tag. I added acouple chipboard sticker sentiments below. To finish my tag, I twisted together some red,silver and green tinsel and threaded through the top hole on my tag. Here's some closeups!
Star tree: Click here
I covered my tag base with another patterned paper as we did previously with our first tag. I covered my Star tree chipboard embellishment with Christmas green glitter. Then I applied some pink Starburst gems onto my tree in scattered places. On the top of my tree, I adhered a peppermint candy chipboard sticker. I fussycut some snowdrifts and Christmas tree from my scrap paper. I adhered benting slightly to create some dimension. Then glued an epoxy presents sticker on the bottom left edge. The Star tree I adhered using foam dots and tucked behind the snowdrift. I added a gold sticker star in the middle opening on my star tree. Then tied some pink eyelash string through the hole on my tag.
Gnomes Chipboard:Click here
Cut several border strips from my patterned paper and adhered on my tag base. Taking my gnome chipboard piece I traced, cut out and glued a piece of scrapbook paper onto his hat. Trimmed away any excess paper using my x-acto knife. Distressed any rough edges. I glued a green pompom onto the tip of his hat. On his beard, I applied some Finnibair Snowflake paste and sprinkled over top some Martha Stewart Suagr cube glitter. Let dry. I cut out acouple sentiments and traced another patterned paper and glued to the back of the beard area on my gnome chipboard piece. I glued the sticker sentiment behind his nose area. Then I adhered my gnome to my tag using foam dots. To finish my tag, I again twisted together some red, green and gold tinsel. The threded through the hole on the top of my tag. Here's some closeups!
