Kid Crafts Friday-Christmas Tags

15 Dec

One of our family Christmas traditions is to wrap Christmas books, and open one each night from December 1st-December 25th.  We label the books 1-25 and the kids take turns opening them starting with the youngest child, and going up to the oldest.  I make sure I keep track of which books are being wrapped-that way I can make them age appropriate to the kids.
One crafty thing I have been wanting to try the past few years is Christmas tags on presents.  I never seem to find the time for this, but this year I thought maybe I could make tags for the Christmas books-kind of a test run for making tags for all the presents for everyone (which would be a lot more tags!)
Because it was such a big project, I decided to get the kids involved.
I started off by printing this digital image from Justmedigitalstamps on to craft card stock.  Then, I used circle dies to cut the image, as well as a card stock circle slightly bigger than the image.  I die cut the larger circle from each of the kids’ favorite colors so that it is very easy for the kids to tell whose turn it is to open a book (it has really helped to do this as now I don’t have to remember whose turn it is!)
I glued these two circles together, and then I gave them to the kids to color.
When they were done coloring their tags, I punched holes in the top, and added coordinating twine.  I also wrote the correct number on the back of each tag, and had The Girlio tape them to the presents.

These tags turned out great, and made a fun family project.  They definitely took some time, but I really like the end results.  And, the kids really like being able to keep the tags once they open that book.
I think it would be fun to do these each year, and now that I have a basic template on how to make them, I could print (or stamp) and die cut everything well in advance of Christmas, and then just finish them up when the time gets closer.  We will see how organized I am next year.  🙂

So, I was at the scrapbook store buying an ink pad for The Girlio for Christmas, and this Pebbles Merry Merry paper just happened to fall into my basket:

I LOVE cut apart papers because they make the easiest cards-that still look nice.
Today I am sharing the first five cards with this paper, and I love the super clean and simple results.

Card Monday-Christmas Card 21

11 Dec

Happy Monday!
Today’s card caused me some issues!  I had it all made and adhered to the card, and then I scratched off part of the gold foil on the main image by accident.  😦
I didn’t want to waste an entire card front, so I found another Echo Park cut apart that I could place right over the damaged one.
It still looked a little plain, so I used my Versamark pad on the edges of the card and applied gold embossing powder to jazz it up a little.
I really liked how it turned out the first time, so I was glad I could at least salvage some of it.
