12 Days of Christmas Tags - Days 1-3

Welcome to the 2013 edition of the 12 Days of Christmas Tags.  Because I like to give the final gift and tag on Christmas Eve, the first gift should have been given on the 13th.  This tradition of secret gift giving to a neighbor has been part of our Christmas for quite a while now.  The video explains how it got started and how it works.  I was not able to finish these in time to have an extra set to give away.  I hope that it will be better next year.

Interested in this tradition for your family, but think its too late to join in?  Not crafty, but want to join in?  No problem.  Simply double up on a couple of days.  You can find the original tags by clicking here.  You don't even need to be crafty because the tags come ready to print if you prefer.  If you are interested, you can also go under the "Videos A-G" tab at the top of the page to see ones I have made in past years.


To start today, I am using the Graphic 45 "12 Days of Christmas" collection.  I have several parts of this collection which you can see in the video.  I also used Goblin Green and both colors of Ribbon Candy crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.  Red and green cardstock from The Paper Studio, Festive Berry and Pine Bough Distress Inks, Tags, Bags, Boxes and More (Cricut Cartridge), Georgia Pacific white cardstock, Versamark Ink, and lace, charms and white embossing powder finish them off.


Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
