Neat and Tangled Tag Hop

Hello there!

Did you hear the news? Neat and Tangled has received Moxie Fab Stamp of Approval!  We couldn't be more excited and decided to celebrate by doing a little tag hop.

I have a confession, I am not much of a tag maker.  I usually resort to the adhesive variety that you can purchase at Target, so this was a bit of a stretch for me. Funny thing though about tags, once you start, it's kinda addictive.  You know, like potato chips, and it's hard to stop at one, so I created four to share with you today.

First up is a tree tag that I created using Little Bear, Elves at Work and the little Star is from Sweet Home.

Tree Tag

I added some googly eyes and a smile using a 3/4" circle punch to animate the tree.  He's happy to be a Christmas Tree after all! 

Next up is a Santa Bear tag using Little Bear.  The Santa Hat is from Hey Cookie.

Little Bear Tag

Again, I added googly eyes and a bit of baker's twine to make a scarf for the little guy- hey, it's cold outside! 

Now, a super simple tag using Santa's Notes

Naughty Nice Tag

I stamped the Naughty or Nice frame onto the tag and then again on white cardstock that I trimmed and adhered to the tag.  I thought the red checkmark would be most visible on a plain background. Some red gems accent the frame.

Finally, and elegant tag using Fresh Blooms and Elves at Work

Poinsetta Tag

One of the things I love most about working with Danielle's stamps it their versatility.  Stamped on red cardstock and doubled up, the blossoms from Fresh Blooms positively look like poinsettias.  The sentiment is from Elves at Work that I stamped onto a Martha Stewart doily die cut.

All of the tags today were made with circle dies from Spellbinders.  I cut two circles for each tag, the second circle is to write the recipient's name without marring the tag.  The patterned paper is from the Winter Wonderland Collection by My Mind's Eye.

Well that's it for my team of holiday tags today.  Here's one more group shot. 


Hope you decide to treat yourself to a little holiday fun and try your had at making some tags!  If you haven't already, stop over at the Neat and Tangled blog to the fabulous tags the other girls created. Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Terrific tags, Katie! I really love how you've put these cute images together. I made hundreds of tags last year...really did get carried away...but they make a fabulous pre-Christmas gift for friends.
