Hello there! Today, I am sharing a pair of COLOR-ful Christmas tags on the Lawn Fawn blog, I am a firm believer that cute packaging can really dress up even the most inexpensive gifts. After all, it's the thought that counts, right? I have a bunch of little people on my holiday list this year, and I thought it would be fun to gift a new coloring book and new crayons. I always loved getting new crayons as a child, and even as an adult, it makes me a little giddy. LOL!
I started off my tags by diecutting the largest tag from the Stitched Circles Tags set out of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper, I sponged on Picked Raspberry Distress ink on one and Twisted Citron on the other, then I added some water droplets to bleach out some of the color. For more interest, I added some distress ink splatters to each tag. While I was waiting for them to dry, I diecut a little treeline using the Forest Border die. Then I stamped, colored and die cut the crayon from the Color My World stamp set, along with the little santa hat and light string from Baaah Humbug (I want to use those tiny lights on everything!). When my watercolor was dry, I started putting my scene together. Before I adhered anything down, I stamped a custom sentiment by combining sentiment from several stamp sets. "Have a" is from the Sweet Smiles stamp set, "Color" is from the Color My World set, I used Milo's ABCs to finish off the word, and "Christmas" is from the Winter Gifts tamp set. After I finished the sentiments, I adhered everything with foam tape and glue pen, and tied up each gift with colored twill. I added each tag with some Peppermint Lawn Trimmings.
Here is the pink version:
