PaperTrey Ink Tremendous Treat Tags-Day 1 of Twelve Days of Christmas Fun

Happy December 1st! It is hard to believe that it is the last month of the year already. Time has FLOWN BY!! Christmas is just around the corner. Has everybody started their shopping? Mine is slow going. When Thanksgiving is so late, I have a hard time getting into my groove when it comes to shopping.

I have been busy over this Thanksgiving vacation making Christmas tags. I try to make my own tags every year. Some years I am more successful then others but this year I am on a roll. I have had a lot of fun die cutting and coloring stamped images. I am like a kid again!

I have decided to do twelve days of Christmas on my blog because I have made so many projects. Tags, cards and even an ornament or two. I will showcase some of these holiday projects each day for the next thirteen days. (I will take December 7th off with a special post about birthdays. That is my daughter, Char's birthday!!)

The first project I am sharing is a series of three tags. All are similar in design but since I get bored doing the same thing over and over, I mixed it up by switching out the colors. I used PTI's Tremendous Treat Stamps and Dies to create the little rein deer. I colored them in with Copic Markers and embellished them with different colored Stickles glitter glue.

I then used pop dots to layer the deer onto a white tag that I stamped with a sentiment and adhered glitter tape too.

My last step was to embellish the tags with different ribbons and some glittered jingle bells. I apologize for all the glitter that is coming off the tag in the photo above. I didn't notice that when I was photographing this!!

Aren't they cute? I think I am going to have a hard time using these tags on my presents. The tag above with the red is my favorite. What one do you like?

Thanks for stopping by today. Remember to check in tomorrow for another project.
