Quick and Easy Christmas Tags

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with some fun, quick and easy Christmas tags.

I am using dies from Find It Trading  - Yvonne Creations called Sweet Christmas Candy along with a few other dies.

I created 4 tags for this post but, I have to say actually created about 10 altogether. I simply repeated some of the designs. This project is perfect for all those scraps you may have left. I stuck to traditional colors but, you can use whatever colors you love.


Let's get started!
I gathered all the materials I would be needing for the project. I die cut some tags and all the candy pieces. I trimmed some baker's twine into about 12" lengths.  

Next, I ran all the candy pieces and the tag reinforcers through my Xyron 1" sticker maker. I also placed 2 sentiments onto an acrylic block and pull my Versafine Onyx Black ink.
  

Tag #1 - Joy

I added the reinforcer to the tag hole. Then I placed the letter J one of the candy bases followed by the letter Y. I topped the candy with the striped piece and I added the litter tie ends of the candy. Stamped the sentiment to the bottom of the tag and added the red twine to the top.
  

Tag # 2 Candy Canes

I added the red reinforcer to the tag hole. I then layered the candy canes and placed them onto the tag. alternating the red and green. I stamped the sentiment to the bottom and added the green twine to the top. 

Tag # 3 

I added the red reinforcer to the tag hole. I then just layered the green sprigs on top of each other. Next, I created the lollipops - cutting some of the sticks shorter. I then added the lollipops to the sprigs. turning them into Christmas ornaments off a branch - making sure to alternate the colors.  Stamped the sentiment at the bottom and added some green twine.
 

Tag # 4 - Gifts

I added the green reinforcer to the tag hole. simply layered all the candies strips onto the white bases. I added the ties for the candy on top of them to create the effect of bows. I trimmed the spiral cady layer in half for bow too.  I then placed them all onto the tag. I stamped the sentiment and add the red twine to the top.

For a finishing touch, I added some Wink of Stella in Clear Glitter to all the die cuts.
Now all the tags are complete!
