Christmas Wrap and Tags {Purple Onion Designs Annual Holiday Sale}

Well hello there. I am back with more Purple Onion Designs projects. The sale ends tomorrow and you need to get in on it for sure! 

I am using another big set that I've actually used pieces before but not these particular images. I created Christmas tags using images from the Merriness Set which is another big set with such great iconic Christmas/Winter images. I cut the three tags from Neenah cardstock and stamped the three different tree images onto them and colored with Copic markers, using a gelly roll pen on the tree topper stars for a it of sparkle. I also cut the same size tag from red, green and aqua patterned paper and also tiny tags from iced aqua cardstock where I stamped the "to". I offset the patterned and image tags and added the tiny tags anchored by either a tiny clothespin or paper bows. For the green and red tag I stamped the snowflakes from the set using silvery shimmer ink. For the red tag I added red liquid pearls for the berries on the tree. A silver metallic snowflake was attached to each tag all anchored with a flat backed pearl. 

I purchased some white kraft paper from Amazon manufactured by Current this summer with the vague idea that I wanted to do my own patterned paper for a few gifts. Not for big boxes but for the smaller gifts and certainly not for all of them. I'm not that crazy! I found it easier to plan a design by first loosely wrapping the paper around the box creasing the edges for guidance. I then stamped the Have the Merriest Christmas Ever sentiment using iced aqua ink repeatedly. I tried to remember that it was homemade and therefore did not have to be perfectly lined up.

    I used to get the Current catalog in the 80's! My favorite recipe binder came from them!
