Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas to ALL!!! Like everyone else, I was busy with holiday TO-DOs. As promised, my last tag here. Yes, a Santa owl tag. It's the cutest ever! To learn how to make the owl, click HERE. To make the owl's feathered horn, use the piece cut on one side of the 2-1/2" circle owl body. The owl body was made cutting equally a 2-1/2" inch circle punch on 3 sides. To put hightlights on the owl's eye, use the Owl Punch (use the smallest circle) I used the Build A Bear accessory BigShot Die (Santa Hat) , used the Windor Word Punch as the rim of the Santa Hat and used the Itty Bitty Punch Set (scallop) for the Santa Hat pom-pom.

What more can I say. I made this tags by giving texture to 1-1/2" squares and using 2 different reds :) I played around with the punch, Blossom Bouguet Triple Layer which I used on the bow of the actual gift image and the top handle of the tag. I also used the 3/4" square for the gift box image. Use the Decorative Label punch to put extra dimension on your tag :) Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

These tags are not quite the traditional Holiday Tags but they will look fabulous with your gifts :) When I was playing around with colors, I picked this great combination and a favorite too. Pretty in Pink, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla! White is always a good one to use to give softness. I made the flowers with the Scallop Circle Punch. First, fold 3x all the pieces into a triangle and set aside. Adhere the center pieces of the scallop circle pieces onto a 1-1/4" circle. Fill in more scallop circle pieces until flower is full. Use glue gun for quicker adhering. I also used the BigShot Die, "Two Tags" #115954. Enjoy making them :) Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

I told you! I love making owls :) But these can pass as any type of bird without the 2 pointy ears. Like Tag #8, the body of the owl is just a 2-1/2" Circle punch then cut straight on 3 sides. Other PUNCH Used: - Window Word Punch for the rim of the hat - Modern Label punch for the scarf - 1" circle Punch for the outer eye socket - 3/4" Circle Punch for the white of the eye - 1/2" circle punch for the inner eye - Heart to Heart punch for the wings (use the 2 long heart adhere side by side as feathered wings) - 1-3/4" Circle punch, used on the belly of the owl (after adhering the piece, cut off the remaining piece) - 1-3/4" Circle punch, cut the piece in half and shape like a bonnet (use "Stripes" textured embossing folder to give texture to the bonnet) - Itty Bitty Punch set (round one for the tip of the bonnet) - cut a piece of triangle to use as the Owl's beak Again, I used colored glitter paper. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!

Who loves owls? I do! :) Big owls, small owls, look like owls, I love them all :) I was inspired to do this tag when I saw a cute Snow Owl. Hence... These owls are quite different from the other owls I made. I used the 2-1/2" Circle punch and cut 3 sides of the circle, leaving one side curve. Check out the tag. Punch Used: - 1" circle Punch for the outer eye - 1/2" circle punch for the inner eye before using 3/8" Googly eyes - 3/4" Square Punch and cut into 2 triangles for the ears - Heart to Heart punch for the wings (use the 2 long heart adhere side by side as feathered wings) - scallop edge border for the waves on the owl's breast - cut a piece of triangle to use as the Owl's beak Use glitter paper, it would look magical :) BTW, use 1 to 2 inches of eyelash ribbon to put in between the eyes of the owl. Use 2 strands. They look like feathers :) Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!

OK! This is such an easy tag to make, just as long as you have the BigShot Die, Petite Pocket #123131. You can actually fit a gift card in it! Isn't that great! Then you may call these Gift Card Tags (double purpose). All you have to do is decorate them. What I did here was make cute tiny bows with the Small Oval Punch by curling them and glueing each together as illustrated. One bow was not enough so I made two. One on top of the other :) I used the Itty Bitty punch set (flower) to finish the bow on the center. Remember to use 1" bows. They look so good as tree ornaments too :) I used a stampin' up! set, "Bells and Boughs" #121731 with silver and gold heat embossing powder. TO EMBOSS, use Versamark ink with your stamp, then pour the embossing powder. Your image will show as soon as you invert your tag to clean excess powder. Then use Heat Tool #100005, to seal the powder. At the back, use your piercing tool and a brad to make one fastener. The flap of your Pocket can easily hold into place. Just make sure that you position the fastener close to the flap. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!

Hi! I got this idea from a Hallmark Ornament called New Home. It just gave me a great cozy feeling. Please note that the snowman on this tag is a snowman boarder that I cut individually. It's made of foam. You can always make or shape your own snowman using circle punch :) First of all, you will need a 3" by 3" cardstock for the house. Then cut both corners on the top to make the shape of a roof. PUNCH and DIES USED: - Tasteful Trip BigShot Die for the snow on the roof top - Jewelry Tag Punch for the windows of the house - Scallop Oval Punch for the door - Modern Label Punch for the Merry Christmas sign I also use tinsel wire to make a wreath. Glitters are always a plus. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!

Yes! It's 14 days until Christmas! Don't panic.... not until the 7th day before Christmas...hihi! We sold the last tag in the store today and what do we do??? Make some tags! Here's a set that you can enjoy! I used my DSP (Designer Series Paper) from last Christmas. Cut 1-1/4" by 12" and score them 1/4 inch apart, alternately. If you are using a Scoring Pad, score your DSP at 1/2" apart from the 1/4" mark. Then invert the DSP and score again at 1/2" apart, this time from the 1/2" mark. After folding the scored DSP alternately (like an accordion), glue together the ends. In a 1-1/2" circle punch piece, blop some glue on the center. Position your accordion DSP where the glued 1-1/2" circle piece would be on the center. Push the accordion DSP towards the center into the glue. TO MAKE THE SANTA PUNCH ART: Use the Pennant Punch for Santa's Hat; Use the Scallop Circle Punch for Santa's Beard and Hair; Use the 1-1/4" circle punch and cut in half to create Santa's Face; Use the Cupcake Builder Punch (use the frosting part) to create part of Santa's beard; Use the Owl Punch (use the Medium circle) to create Santa's nose; To add on some pom pom on the top of Santa's Hat You may also make other designs for the center of your tags. The gift with ribbon was made using 3/4" square punch and the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch on glitter paper. The Decorative Label punch is always helpful to add dimension to your tags :) Finally, don't forget your ribbons! I used glue gun to adhere my DSP, Ribbons and Santa. Fast adhering!

First of all, thank you so much for greeting me back here, my blog friends. Creations on Paper would not be what it is today without you guys. As most of you know, my favorite tools would be punch and die cuts. I'm also thankful to Stampin' Up! that I can get them in one place. And I'm still continuing to do so! Remember the Build-A-Bear BigShot Dies? Yes, you can still bring them out and play with them! Just get a cut of your Holiday ribbon and use your favorite caption stamps.. Viola!!! TAGS GALORE!!! BTW, I used the Pennant punch to get my glitter paper triangles and used my itty bitty punch again for the Santa Hat!!! The girly shoes you see here was also a Build-A-Bear accessory die that came separately. So cute, huh!!! One of my rules during the holidays is use GLITTER! GLITTER! EVERYWHERE!!... To My dear Carol Carriveau, you are always so sweet to me. I'm so lucky to have you as a friend :) Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

Hello! It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!!! I'm feeling the spirit this year and here we go!!! Every year, my sister wishes for her Xmas Tags and parades them like designer tags. She's so funny! She would not even share them...hahaha. Anyway, she gives them away with her gifts every year and it's now a tradition. Her friends can't wait to see the designs every year. Ok let's begin with these tags. I used different kinds of ribbons on them in different colors. They still look Christmasy :) The ribbons on these tags were made using 2 kinds of punch: Scallop Oval and Petite Pennants Builder. Just glue together the triangle Pennants on their ends and add on the curled Scallop Ovals to shape like bows. Isn't that neat! To cover the center of the ribbon, I used the itty bitty punch (scallop circle shape). Punch out 3 pieces and glue them overlaping each other on the ribbon center. Oh, I used the 2-1/2" Circle punch for the tag itself. You can use any Textured Expression Folder to give them dimension. I also used the Decorative Label Punch and the Glitter Paper is always elegant. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!
