Holiday Series with May Flaum: Part Two

Hi all! May Flaum here. Last week we got pretty intense with the gift card holder (if you missed it – you can check that out here!) so this week I want to share how you can make gift tags in mere moments with Lawn Fawn!

The Peace Joy Love collection is bringing peace to my mind, joy to my gift wrapping, and love for Lawn Fawn big time this year! I am totally smitten with this line and how there is such a mix of traditional patterns and colors in fresh ways. I am really happy about the sheet of paper with loads of tags on it – all ready to be cut out and put onto presents, used on layouts or cards, or anything else you please!

I decided to take a few minutes and alter each one for a little holiday fun! Here are some ideas (left to right pictured above):

  • Add a stamp and some sequins!
  • mist with perfect pearls and add stickles
  • add a little ‘skirt’ by stitching on a pleated bit of paper to the bottom

My ideas shown here are just the beginning! You could also:

  • stamp with Versamark to create a soft watermark effect
  • use glossy accents to highlight certain areas
  • use strips of washi tape
  • mount onto larger card/tag
  • use a pen to add dots/dashes
  • punch out shapes (heart, star, etc) and add those on

If you have a roll of Lawn Fawn’s twine – even better! You can take your tags and get them onto a simple package in no time.

Here I glued some snowflakes and a badge + a little tag onto a package (and tied it up with twine) just to add a little something fun to this present.

The possibilities are wide open – and even better they’re nearly instant! I love when a company makes products like these that are so versatile and work great in my gift giving as well as they do my usual crafting. I hope you’ve enjoyed this installment – I’ll be back on Saturday, December 7th with another feature in my 2013 Holiday Series! Stay tuned!

  3. These would be the perfect complement to Kelly’s gift wrapping!!!! I never think about taking time (or run out of it) to make nice tags. Thanks for the ideas to help me rectify that.

  4. Cute tags May! I’m so glad odd shaped sequins are out of the closet. LOL I’ve got to figure out where I have mine stashed in the reg. craft stuff. Thanks for these fun tips. I’ve really got to get started.
