Large vintage Christrmas Tag


Okay folks…I’ve gone from one extreme to the other. My last project had small tags….and lot’s of them. Just one tag this time….but it’s extra large : ) More room for vintagy goodness right?? I had some pretty paper in the stash with a natural border so I took advantage of it. I added some stamping and inking. I just love the snowflakes in the chocolate brown ink. The sweet image of Santa is of course from Graphics Fairy. There’s also a layer of sheet music donated by my friend Carol who is home recuperating and I hope she gets better real soon so we can get back to playing paper! A bit of lace, ribbon and buttons and some darling little chipboard elements that I painted and inked, and the corners got a coat of clear glitter flakes. A little ribbon and lace tied to the top and voila!

I made this tag on a super sturdy base so it can be put out year after year with the holiday decor.  Can’t you just see it tucked into a mantle display with candles and lace???I’m going to try another tag today with brighter colors! Wish me luck : ) Hope you all have a wonderful crafty day!!!

  1. Not only is your large holiday tag simply “GOR-JUS”…..I was so happy you gave an example of how to display it!!! I love tags but haven’t felt the urge to make many and then stash in a drawer or even a book as a bookmark…and you can only have so many tags hanging on knobs….lol TYVM
