It’s that time of year when paper crafters everywhere need a handmade Christmas tag for a present! You want it to be special but you also don’t want to spend a lot of time making it, especially if you are making multiples. Design Team member Kate here, with an idea for a quick “pop-up” tag for your Christmas packages. The die set I used in this project is by Momenta and is designed to make a 3-D element, but you can easily do this same technique with a flat die.
Choose a die that is symmetrical, so that when it is folded in half, both sides are the same. Cut three identical pieces and score down the center of each. Let's use a heart for this example. Choose a heart to be the center one, then glue the left and right diecuts to the sides of the center diecut.
This creates a cool pop-up effect.
For your base tag, use a tag die (or cut your own at 1 3/4 x 3 1/4 inches - or really any size!) You can use patterned paper, solid cardstock, or white cardstock with some ink blending using our new Distress Oxide inks.
I like to cut several tags and layer them together for extra sturdiness. You can even sandwich some sturdier solid cardstock like Bazzill Card Shoppe between two patterned paper tags. Consider using solid paper for the backs of the tags so you can write a small message.
Happy handmade Christmas tag making!
