More Than Tags

December 1, 2018

I had quite a few Sincerely Santa Tag kits left over from my recent classes and I thought that I would try and upscale them for another use.  Soooo, I used some of the tags to create pocket pages for my Christmas Memory Keeping.  For the first tag – Joy to the World, I created the tag pretty much according to the kit, however, I used a piece of the Garden Green Satin Ribbon and tied a knot and added it where the string to hang the tag would normally go.  I attached the tag to Whisper White card which I had embossed using the Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder before attaching it to Cherry Cobbler card.  This creates a lovely 6″ x 4″ card to go in one of my pockets or maybe even on one of my more traditional Memory Keeping Pages.

The second tag is the “Fa La La” tag which I created using the pieces which came in the kit, except this time, I used two of the pieces of White Twine and tied a bow which I attached where the string would normally be to hang the tag.  Once more the tag is attached to Whisper White card which is embossed using the Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder and then Garden Green card.  Again this creates a 6″ x 4″ card for my Memory Keeping.

For the last tag, I decided not to use the greeting as per the instructions and instead stamped the tree from the Timeless Tidings stamp set several times onto the greeting panel using Garden Green ink.  I did stamp several times without re-inking to give a little depth.  I also trimmed a little from the length of the tag.  I tied one of the pieces of Garden Green Satin Ribbon into a bow and attached it where the string to hang the tag would normally go.  Again the tag is attached to Whisper White card embossed using the Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder before being attached to Cherry Cobbler card.  This time, I have a 3″ x 4″ card for my Memory Keeping.

These pocket page cards were a lot of fun to create and I think I will be using more of the tags this way for my December Memory Keeping.  How about you, have you thought about using these kits in a different way than the one they were created for?

Bye for now,

Kris
