Elf Gift Tags


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Lynn Mc Auley, our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Family Traditions - If your family is like mine, there are certain family traditions that show up at each of your Christmas celebrations together. I would love for the CCEE Stampers’ cards to represent a favorite or an unusual Christmas tradition shared by the members of your family each year. 

For the past 9 years, I have had elves visiting my house who get up to all sorts of fun and mischief. 

Another tradition I have been doing for as long as I can remember is making my own gift tags.

As I recently received my Hero Arts My Monthly Hero November 2021 kit which focus on dies to create your own character gift tags, I decided to pull those out to make some elf gift tags for this challenge. 

As the die included a loop at the top of the tag to hang cord onto, I wanted to make the tags shaped rather than attached to a tag. So after creating my first elf tag, I used my Scan N Cut machine to scan in the shape and then cut out 6 white shapes. These were then adhered to the back of the tag, so it hides the mess at the back.

I stamped the "To" and "From" to the back of the tag, which are from the stamp set included in the kit.

As you can see, I created a elves using a few different colored combos.

One final gift tag using a red and white color combo.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
