Christmas Box and Tags

Good morning, Crafters! This is Gloria Stengel, with another fun Christmas project! I love to make pretty things, but when I make something that's pretty and also practical, that is a win-win!
Using Authentique Vintage Christmas paper collection, Authentique Colorful Christmas paper collection, and Authentique Spectrum Series Cardstock, I created a little storage box and eight (8) tags.
The eight tags come in four (4) different sizes. There is a tag for all of your gift wrapping needs!
Plus, after you use up your tags, you can fill the little box with candy or other treats, or even a battery-powered candle. 
I created little feet for my box from a few bingo tiles. They work great for this purpose! However, my box must have been a little bent because it was wibbly wobbly! I had to add a few punch-outs of cardstock under one of my little feet to keep the box from wobbling.
If you wish to give your "box o'tags" as a gift, simply attach another tag to the back of the box! 
To me, there is nothing better than hand-made gift tags (or cards or bags, for that matter). I used paper, images, and stickers from the Vintage Christmas and Colorful Christmas paper collections to decorate my beautiful, hand-made tags.

The back of each tag is plain, covered simply with paper from the Spectrum Series Cardstock. If you wanted to use the box of tags as a mini album you could place photos on the back of each tag!

Two of the tags are 5 3/4" tall, two tags are 5 1/4", two tags are 4 3/4", and two tags are ATC size.

Here is a close-up view of each tag.

For this tag, I used two different 12x12 paper patterns and an image from the Vintage Christmas 6x6 pad. The white paper doily and red ribbon are perfect for this snowy image. I added a few white sequins, a sparkly snowflake, two tiny bells, and some ivory string for decoration. The sentiment strip is a Vintage Christmas sticker.
I used another doily for the second tag. I used candy cane paper, which matched the sweet image. A few of the stickers from Colorful Christmas have the same red and and green theme as Vintage Christmas. This time I added a flower cluster and some twine to the edge of the tag. I had a lot of "broken" flowers in one of my bins, so I added some gold and silver stamens to them, and glued several together to make Christmas blooms!
I love vintage Santa images! I paired the Vintage Christmas image with some of the paper and stickers, plus I added some white pearls to mimic snow. I tied a chubby bow and added a red jingle bell.
This image of the little girl baking cookies (from Vintage Christmas) is so sweet. I used the cookie paper from Colorful Christmas as my background. I then made paper "cookie" stars to decorate the tag. I also added a tiny baking tin filled with flowers, twine, and a mini cookie cutter to the bottom of the tag. I even added a tiny gingerbread man cookie (button)!
This is my favorite tag of the set. I love the green plaid bow next to the striped paper. I placed a partial doily at the top of the tag, and then I added a sticker image as the focal image. I used some floral elements and a silver star charm.
I fussy cut this deer image (Vintage Christmas) and then used foam tape to pop him off the tag. It was fun to use the Colorful Christmas Rudolph paper as a background! I also added a chubby bow and a few other embellishments. 
The ATC tags are small, but adorable. I used the Santa sticker from Vintage Christmas and a stocking charm for this little cutie!
This last tag is also ATC size. I loved this vintage postage stamp image from Vintage Christmas. It went very well with the striped paper and sticker from Colorful Christmas! Plus, that red bow is so pretty! I cut the postage image out with decorative scissors and then sponged the edges with black ink.
To use the tags on a package or gift bag, tie some twine or ribbon through the hole at the top and attach to your package. To use the tags as a mini album, string them onto a metal ring. Thank  you so much for looking!

Merry Christmas,

  1. This is gorgeous! I would love to receive this as a gift. Thank you.

  2. Wow, what an amazingly gorgeous project! So beautiful!

  3. Everyone's tradition is different, for example in my family it is to give gifts to all relatives. This year I almost broke it, because I lost my job and could not afford gifts, but I did not despair to the last and looked for a resume review and found best resume services , with the help of which I wrote a good resume and found a job where I could earn money for gifts for everyone
