Tiny Treats: Christmas Tags

     I seriously can't get enough of the Tiny Treats: Christmas images from Papertrey Ink.
It really is one of my favourite sets from this season. I have made lots of Christmas cards and tags for family and friends. Here's a few things I've been busy creating over the last few days.

     My nieces, nephews and sons are all grown adults. But over the last few years we have had 5 little ones added to the family mix ( all grand nieces and nephews, no grandchildren yet!!)
Oh how I love shopping and making things for the little folk. Everything has been finished, wrapped and sent along to them and here are some of the tags I made to go with the presents.

I used the Mat Stack 2 die, but stamped it with the Mat Stack stamp from Tiny Treats: Christmas. I just rotated the stamp so that a portion of it showed in the center of the die cut. I then added a bow and ribbon to the top and a little Stamping Bella red Dot to the bottom portion.It looks like a little tree ornament! My 3 1/2 year old neice will enjoy her little deer!

This little guy is off to my 18 month old grand nephew. I again used the Mat Stack 2 die and the Mat Stack 1 stamp from Tiny Treats. This time I stamped and punched the circle image and then added it to the die. I attached it to the Tag Sale #1 die cut which had been embossed with a Dots Cuttlebug folder and then rubbed with some cranberry ink. Blue and white striped ribbon attaches the tag to the curly ribbon.

This little nutcracker will be under the tree for my 4 month old grand nephew. I used a red Limitless Layer to mount the circle and then attached it to the green Tag Sale #1. It was embossed with Swiss Dots and then I added sparkle on each dot with my Stickles!! I used red and white saddle ribbon and  PTI's Red Poppy Baker's Twine to finish this off.

     This little snowman is heading off to my 2 year old grand niece. I used the Tiny Treats: Christmas stamp on the Mat Stack 1 die and restamped the central image and punched it out. It was then attached to the die to create a cute tag.

I showed the 5th tag in an earlier post along with the book bag I sent to my other 2 year old grand niece who lives in New Zealand. You can see that post here.

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!

Cute tags, Karen. I have this set too, but hardly inked it up. Thanks for the inspiration.

Cute idea using Mat Stack 2 to cut the frame from Tiny Treats: Christmas! I never would have thought of that! Very cute tags!

Very sweet - great job! The TT images are so cute. My favourite is the raindeer, and that particular stamp has gotten quite the workout this year. :)
