Hi Crafty Friends! We are almost 2 months away from Christmas. This year was a bit different as I was recovering from shoulder surgery and then we moved half way across the United States. All of that took much more time than I anticipated, so I am very behind on all my Christmas crafting. I like to make our gift tags, holiday cards, gift card holders, etc. I am thrilled to have these 10 tags made and I have a plan to get everything else done. Watch for a monthly holiday series with videos starting in January 2023.

I got this beautiful Holly Christmas Stamp and Die set from Sweet N Sassy Stamps and can’t put it down. I have made many cards and now tags with it. I love the detail and the sentiments are so great. I have a video on my YouTube channel showing you how I made these wonderful tags. Make sure to check it out!!


When mass producing projects I do like to work in an assembly line style. So I cut everything I need first, then I work from there. I use small containers for items so I don’t misplace anything.

  • After having all the tags and hole reinforcers die cut, I began stamping my sentiments from the Holly Christmas Stamp Set . I stamped the front and back sentiments on separate tags as I glue these together for a more sturdy tag.
  • I stamped and clear embossed all the sentiments.
  • Next I stamped the 2 large holly images from the Holly Christmas Stamp Set in black ink on watercolor cardstock then clear embossed these as well.
  • I then used a paint brush and Tree Lot and Peppermint Stick Mica Stain to paint the holly branches.
  • Once these where done, I splattered Tarnished Brass Mica Spray on the front tags.
  • The holy images were then die cut using the coordinating dies for the Holly Christmas Stamp Set. I also die cut 2 more of each image from 110 lb. cardstock. These will be adhered behind each image for dimension. So I die cut 10 more of each image.
  • I then adhered the tag fronts and backs together before adhering the gold hole reinforcers.
  • After adhering and stacking all the holly images, I glued them to the front of the tags above the sentiment.
  • Lastly, I cut my cord about 12 inches long then tied these to each tag.

I hope these tags inspire you to get busy with your holiday projects. I love how these turned out and am so excited to put them on gifts this holiday season. Please check out my video for more detailed instruction on how I created this wonderful little tags. Thank you so much for stopping by.
