Cozy & Shabby Gifting Tags

Happy Holiday Greetings! 
 I have a quartet of Cozy Christmas shabby chic-style gifting tags to share with you today.
  I've pulled together chipboard stickers, cardstock stickers, brads, enamel dots, 
bits 'n pieces, insta squares and SN@P! cards from the collection by
SIMPLE STORIES
 along with a few other basic office supplies from my stash.

To begin I started with basic manila shipping tags, as well as a couple of metal rim key tags (these can be found at office supply stores).  I soaked the key tags in a tea solution overnight to give them an aged look.

Next, I prepared the tags by inking around the edges with a brown distress ink. 

I started each tag with a mat of paper that was cut from a larger SN@P! card or placed two of the smaller Insta Squares together to form a background. 

Add dimension by layering small stickers and die-cuts with foam adhesive.  When adding the brads, I made sure that I attached them to a piece so that the prongs wouldn't show at the back of the tag.


Use dies to create your own mats for the different bits 'n pieces die cuts.  And of course I had to add some pom pom trim and ribbon bows to the tops of each tag!

A bevy of beautiful, handmade tags can be whipped up in no time and they make lasting keepsakes for the recipients (or for yourself!).  Have fun tag making!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
