Christmastide, or the Twelve Days of Christmas, begins soon so my project for today is a set of Twelve Days of Christmas Tags. The tags are made using Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas papers and a Sizzix/Brenda Walton die (Inserts and Envelopes Mini Correspondence), and are very quick and easy to make.
I began by selecting papers from the Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas, Patterns and Solids 6×6 paper pack to make the pockets. I also selected a solid paper for the tag — Bazzill “Cream Puff”. I used 1/2 sheet of the 6×6 paper for each pocket, a 2″x3″ piece of the Bazzill paper for each tag. I used my Sizzix Big Kick to cut the twelve tags and pockets from the Mini Correspondence die. The pockets are easily assembled with just a couple of folds (the die adds the score lines as you cut each pocket) and a little Scor-Tape by Scor-Pal.
I used the “Turtle Dove”, “Calling Birds”, “Golden Rings”, “Swans a Swimming”, “Ladies Dancing”, and “Drummers Drumming” sheets from the Twelve Days of Christmas 8×8 paper pack to cut the elements to decorate the pockets and tags. The 12 days lists that I used on the back of each tag are from the back of the “My True Love” paper (you’ll need both sheets to cut 12). It takes just a few minutes to decorate each tag and pocket. I attached each of the elements with 1/8″ Scor-Tape. I added an eyelet and some ribbon to the top of each pocket to finish it. The finished tags and pockets are approximately 2″x3.5″. Here’s a close up of the front and back of day 5.
I thought this was a very cute, and easy holiday project. Merry Christmas!
