PTI November Blog Hop

When I saw that this month's challenge was to make holiday tags, I knew I had to play along. I decided to have fun and put a little extra something into these tags. Normally, I make a lot of very boring, generic tags for putting on wrapped gifts, so I had fun putting these together!

The challenge:
Design a holiday tag or two using all of your favorite goodies and share it with all of us! We will all have plenty of inspiration to create a large stash and try to get ahead of the hustle and bustle of the season!

I made 3 tags. The first one took a while, since I wanted to get the design just so. Once I had that all worked out, the next 2 came together quickly. I decided to use each of the tin type backgrounds throughout the tags. I used felt to mat the circles.

And here's one of the tags jazzing up this tin:

  • Stamps: Background Basics: Tin Types, Peace Be Still, Inside and Out: Holidays
  • Ink: Real Red, Landscape, Early Espresso
  • Paper: Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy, Simply Chartreuse, Dark Chocolate
  • Accessories, etc.: Limitless Layers 1-3/4 Circle Collection, Mat Stack 1, Felt, Buttons


  1. Those are awesome! Love the backgrounds too!

  2. So pretty, I love them! Thanks for sharing!


  3. Beautiful tags. Love the idea of the ribbon to go around your tin and hold it in place.

  4. Very cute tags and a great idea to add them to the tins!

  5. Really fun idea. Love how you used backgrounds on the mat stack element. Cute! Way to rock the PTI tag challenge.

    It's a good life!
