Christmas Bags & Tags by Christine


Welcome back to Christine Meyer!  She's now a member of the new SRM All Star Team and I love her many talents.  Today she is rocking the new canvas tags, sticker stitches and stamps.


Now let's hear from Christine in her own words…

Hi SRM fans!  I'm not gonna lie, I kind of love thinking about Christmas in July!  Christmas is my favorite time of year, so given the chance I will craft it in the off season too!  Today I am going to show you how I took some new products from SRM to make some Christmas goodies!  

First up some Christmas tags on the new Canvas Tags!

I love the "To" and "From" on this stamp.  They are perfect for gift tags and bags! And love all the little hearts, candy canes and holly too.  They give a nice finishing touch to any project.

This was super simple to make!  I used regular black ink and my stamps. The new 'Tis the Season stamps were perfect for this! I then colored it in with a permanent marker (nothing fancy).

I also added Stamped Stitches to the tag just to add a little something extra. Could not be any more simple and will add a great personalized touch to my gifts!

I also did a canvas tag with the reindeer stamp from the set - he was a little trickier because there were a lot more details but he still turned out cute!

Now this simple technique doesn't just work for our canvas tags!  It also works on the new Linen Bags!  I used a 3"X 5" Rustic Linen Bag and I did a very similar design as my tree tag but did it on a bag.

How perfect will this be to stick a gift card or other tiny gift in?  Handmade with a personal touch always makes the gift even more special!
