Hello out there in craft land....
Is this not THE best time of the year? Really though, a person digs out the glitter and glue and perhaps a little paper, Okay maybe a lot and presto bamo you have some homemade items to give away at Christmas. Loooove it
There is so many new things in the works at C.C. Designs! Eeeek let me tell you that between the new creations, new store and newness everywhere there are great things a happening. Today I decided to use one of the cutest dies ever....this die was created by Christine (owner) at C.C. Designs.
Santa's Belt is just too cute to pass up. I grabbed the idea from Pinterst but wanted a tag that had a present inside- sometimes the little ones forget to read the tags....and sometimes even the adults are just as excited and they don't either....but if there is yummy incentive who wouldn't want to have a little chocolate to start holiday mornings off with a bang?!!
If you are following along with us at C.C. Designs then you knew the tag would be red...and I sure do hope you want to play along. This is just for fun and no pressure on who has the best. Please be sure to post your creation.
I started this by creating a pattern because I wanted to ensure my cuts would be even. After creating a pattern then I used a scallop punch for the upper neck cuff or the end of Santa's beard....wherever your imagination takes you. I had Recollections black buttons and used some Glue Dots to secure them onto the paper. Next I used the Fairwee Tiny Boarder Die for the bottom cuff and then die cut the belt. I used Velcro to fasten the belt to the back because I did not want to see a giant bump on the front- even though it may have been easier to open....but it does make it sweeter if you have to struggle a tiny bit.
The inside was created using Big Christmas Wishes from Amy R. She has lots of Christmas and Holiday stamps to choose from and they are super affordable. I used a doily inside to have a pouch for the candy or treat to stay in; however, if I was creating many of these I would choose a paper that is more hardy and perhaps use the edge to decorate the pouch. A personal note can easily be added to the left hand side of the tag. I hope you enjoyed this tag for the first day of Christmas tags at C.C. Designs.
