Tree Shaped Gift Tag

I hope you are having an awesome celebration with you family and friends. I am at work Christmas Eve and looking forward to Christmas Day so I can celebrate it with my family.

I created these tags to attach to the gifts for my family which will be given once I get home from work.

I searched for a Christmas Tree image in Cricut Design Space. This image is a layered cut. I cut the solid layer only. I approximately cut the image about 3"x 8". Initially, I was planning to tuck this in the boys' stockings instead of attaching it to the gift. This is the dimension of the smallest stocking. I cut this tree image on a 12"x 12" patterned paper and a green cardstock.

I was amazed at how I was able to fit all 5 trees in one 12x12 paper. On a previous post, I mentioned how I loved the CDS feature of being able to drag your image to any part of the paper or mat which is a paper and mat saver feature. They added more functions prior to cutting. You can rotate your image, and you can move images from mat to mat. Another paper saver feature! I simply love it! Thanks, Cricut!

Going back to the project, I cut a gold cardstock for the star tree topper using a Lawn Fawn Tiny Tag die. The stamp I used is from the Lawn Fawn Tiny Tag Sayings stamp set. I heat embossed this using white powder.

I was hoping to add an embossed sentiment on the tree but since the patterned paper has a busy pattern, the sentiment was not readable. Instead, I added strips of My Mind's Eye washi tape. To hide the hole created by the die on the star tag, I slid the top of the tree through it, then adhered the star using foam tape. I adhered the green cardstock to the back of the patterned paper to make the tree sturdy. I also adhered a wood grain patterned paper to the trunk of the tree.

As finishing touch, I added drops of gold Nuvo drops to mimic ornaments.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed and brilliant day!
