Tag It For Christmas

Hi! I'd like to share my entry into Challenge: Celebrating the light, or seasonal holiday.
This tag has used the same style of magnetic folder as the one used for My Little Book of Doodles. These are by Petaloo and are very versatile, coming in a couple of different sizes and assorted colours.
Strips of background paper for the cover and inserts were stamped and smooshed with Distress Inks. These were also used for the embellishments throughout.

Outside cover of tag showing embossed embellishments, washi tape and tags made from Darkroom Door stamps.

Washi tapes were used and to make them adhere more permanently were placed on top of double-sided tape.
'Wellington' Bear stamps by Docraft and Darkroom Door Christmas stamps were used for the tag.

Inside cover showing Wellington bear and darkroom Door stamps.

These tags can be changed easily for recipients and if needed, additional pages or photos can be added.

Insert with back page and front page.

The whole piece was secured with glittery wool. Some touches of Kindy Glitz completed the tag (just to give it some Christmassy sparkle).                                                                          
Thank you to everyone who has stopped by my blog and left comments. These are always greatly appreciated and I also love visiting your blogs which are very inspirational. I'll take this opportunity to wish all of my readers a fantastic Christmas filled with peace, happiness and love. Thanks again for stopping by.                                                                                                                                   
 Cheers, Di.



  1. Hi Diane, a tag book is such a great idea to keep memories of 2012 and I love how you have put yours together, the papers are beautiful and that idea of using double sided on the Washi tape is a great tip -thank you. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hugs, Anne x

  2. Another fabulous tag book Diane. Think the outer cover is my favourite part. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas, hugs Jenny x

  3. Love your Christmassy tag album, Diane - lovely papers, and beautifully put together. Sorry not to have been around - just completed a massive house-move, leaving the family home of 40 years!

    Thank you for your lovely comment... and to answer your question, here's a link to the fabulous Treasure Gold , with a couple of videos. TG is a kind of waxy gilding paste, but they make Liquid Leaf too - also well worth checking out that video...
