A Word-y Christmas Tree

25DaysTagsRedChristmas

Hi, all!

Well, surprise surprise! I’m back with another tag… another Christmas tag. Shocked, right? Ha! Wink!

Today’s tag was inspired by a combination of tags shared during the 25 Days of Christmas Tags. There were a few tags that featured text mainly as the design element on on them (for example, Debby’s Cheer tag here) that caught my eye. And there was Joyce’s Tree tag on Day 12 too that made me say, “That’s cool!”

Collectively, the text tags and Joyce’s tree tag inspired me to make this simple little tag. So let’s take a look at it. 🙂

It’s a simple little tag, really.

I simply made the Christmas tree by stamping words and stars from the Spreading Joy stamp set from Paper Smooches on a die-cut tag.  Then I stamped a heart in the middle of the “o” in Joy. To sauce it and the stars up, I applied a thin layer of Stickles onto them. I love the little glitz the glitter adds.

I thought about using another word stamp to make the tree’s trunk, but I instead went the easy route. I freehand cut a simple trunk from kraft cardstock and plopped it in place.

I finished the tag off with by tying some jute throught the top of it. I purposely chose jute because it matches the color of the tree trunk. I think a nice red and white baker’s twine would have looked swell though as well.

Alrighty! That is it for me today. I’ll be back again later. Pretty sure I’ll be back again in the next couple days with another tag or two. I just can’t stop. Having so much fun. Thanks again, Tracey, for all your efforts in putting this fun event together… and for the flood of inspiration to play!

And a big thanks to all of you out there for swinging by, as always. It’s always a treat!

  1. It HAS been fun, hasn’t it? But seriously…what am I going to do with all of these tags? I’m certain I’ll have some left over for next year. Great tag!

  2. This is a wonderful tag, and a really fun idea to make the tree that way. I am tickled that my tag inspired you! Thanks so much for playing along at The 25 Days of Christmas Tags.
