'2Crafty Christmas Tags' By Elisa Ablett

Merry Christmas 2Crafty fans,

Elisa here from the design team with the first of my December inspiration for you, three very different and unique Christmas mixed media tags.

Here are the 2Crafty Chipboard Products used in the tags;

 Products List:

Sparrows and Branch
Polaroid frames
Brushstroke Tree
ATC Mini Hearts
Mini Houses
Linear Snowflakes
Circle Stack
Mini Christmas Word Set 1


Let's take a closer look at each tag!

'Christmas Wonderland'

Create a Christmas snow globe on a tag, by cutting circle chipboard, heat embossing with silver embossing powder and adding small Christmas themed chipboard to your globe 
and Snowtex by DecoArt for a textured snow like look!

I heat embossed the delicate Linear Snowflakes with white glitter 
embossing powder to co-ordinate with the snow and winter scene. 


Use small chipboard Polaroid frames to frame and draw attention to 
cut out elements like felt Poinsettia's and foam berries. 

I converted the 'sparrow on a branch' to a Christmas theme by sticking with the 
co-coordinating colours plus cutting Christmas paper to use as a wing on the bird. 

Heat emboss your small title with brilliant white embossing powder 
and add some lace and wood fibres for texture.


Cover your tag with Christmas themed paper and sand the edges. 
Then ink around the edges to create a black grungy look.

Heat emboss your Chipboard Tree with metallic green embossing powder, 
then wrap the tree in black wire, making sure it lays fairly flat. 
Colour small ATC chipboard hearts or stars with gold glitter pen or 
paint pen and attach to the wire as though they are baubles. 

Add finishing touches like a hand painted present and title and red thread!

Well that's it from me today, 
thank you so much for stopping by the blog.

I hope all your Christmas and holiday preparations are going well!
