Hello! and Happy Holidays to you! Over at MyStampBox, we are having a christmas celebration. I made some projects for day 3...

Kristen here with a beautiful and vintage inspired tag set for you.
Since I have the honor of being day 3, I thought I would make a set of three tags for you.
First, the stamp set I have used on my cards is the  HoHoHo set.
This set is very versatile,  I bet you would never have thought to use it to make these vintage looking tags.
I have mixed two collections of paper- using Graphic 45 and Making Memories Noel collections. I also added in some embellishments such as seam binding, buttons, twine, glittered chipboard from K&Co,  pearls and velvet holly leaves.
I hand cut a Christmas tree and popped it up, along with adding a hand drawn stitch line around the paper. I also punch some scallops and added them to the sides. Along the bottom I added my Christmasy HoHoHo stamp in a tea dye color, and cut out and pop dotted the stamped saying.

Next I created this second tag, mostly using strips of paper, then I added a scallop piece of kraft circle, topped with some more paper.  With that I tied a large double bow with my seam binding ribbon and topped that with a button. I added the deer and glittered tree to the card as well. Again,  in tea dye color ink, I stamped the words Jingle Bells onto a strip and put it across the tag, I added two little cream color pearls as well.

Lastly I made this Twas the Night tag, again, still using the HoHoHo set, and some tea dye color ink, I stamped the sentiment and cut it out. I layered several strips of patterned paper ( all of this paper was scraps!) and I  hand drew on some stitching on the word block. I popped it up and put it on my tag. I then made an accordion with paper, and glued on a glittered ornament topped with some crinkled seam binding and a matching button. I also added a star chipboard towards the bottom of the tag.

I hope you have enjoyed my christmas tags, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Just a note- if you are enjoying my use of seam binding, I will soon be selling lengths of it on Etsy at a very reasonable price, so please check back for my announcement when my listings will be up so you can hop over to Etsy to see them!
