Anything Goes- anything but a card!

Hi everyone! As it's Tuesday, it's time for the Anything Goes Challenge. This fortnight's challenge is "Anything but a card". At Christmas time, they are so many different possibilities for this one so I can't wait to see your entries. Do please pop along and visit the DT samples as they are all wonderful.

I decided to make Christmas present tags- something I've not done before. Initially I wondered what to do but I had great fun with these actually once I got started. Armed with my nesties, some paper offcuts and a few stamps they were really easy to put together. I've hung them on our tree just to make them look more festive!!


This first one I made using the Papertrey Ink Damask snowflake and holly dies, the stamp is from PTI Photo Finishers set and nestie label 18. Some Gold Stickles, paper from Prima North Country (available from The Craft Den) and I was good to go!

Second one is again is done using Damask snowflake and Prima North Country papers. The sentiment stamp and die are from the Photo Finishers set. I used Crystal Stickles on this one and the blue gems are by Kars from The Craft Den.

Same papers again and I cut around one of the embellies to use as a focal point. Nesties this time are the Heirloom Ornament ones.

Another shot of the first one!

Last one made using Nesties Label 21 and 18. Papers are from Basic Grey Jovial also available at The Craft Den. Larger holly die also from PTI.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (PTI); Assorted cardstock; Papers (Basic Grey, Prima); Ribbon (recycled); Stickles; Holly, Snowflake & sentiment dies (PTI); Hole punch; Button; Gems (Kars & K&Co); Assorted nesties

Thanks for stopping by today! x

I love tags. I actually encourage the kids to save them each year and now that I've got a stash of homemade ones, it sure makes wrapping a breeze...and an adorned gift looks much prettier to me! I just might have to case some of these....so pretty!
