Terrific Tag Tuesday: Merry Christmas!

Hi All! Welcome to the final installment of the Kraft-y Hearts Terrific Tag Tuesday Blog Share. If you haven't already, be sure to hop over and see what the amazingly talented Lynn Darda has to share with you today at From My Bungalow.

Now on to today's project. So when is a tag not a tag? When it's also an envelope! Let's take a look:

So today's tag is fashioned after the library pocket you used to find in the back of books that housed the lending card.

I used heavy black cardstock for both the tag and the card, and rounded the top corners of both. I layered both the tag and the card with papers from Close To My Heart's Happy, Happy Christmas My Crush pages. Then embellished the tag with black shimmer ribbon and snowflakes cut from white glitter paper. I also added a white eyelet to the top and finished it off with black shimmer ribbon and red and white bakers twine from my stash.

For the card, I added a sentiment to a Happy, Happy Christmas Picture My Life card and attached it to the front of the card. The sentiment is from the Very Merry Stamp Set and is stamped in Black Archival ink. I added a couple of snowflakes to the front that I punched out of white glitter paper.

Here's another look at the front of the card:

To finish off the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Very Merry Stamp Set in Sea Glass ink onto White Daisy cardstock and layered it onto the black base.

Here's another look at the tag with the card:

And that's it! I hope you enjoyed this tag-not-a-tag! Now I'm off to make a few more for friends and family. Don't forget to hop over and see what Lynn has for your inspiration at From My Bungalow.

Have a wonderfully creative holiday season!


  1. I just love this idea and how you used those pages to create the card and the tag-envie. The colors are great together topped with those sparkly white snowflakes! Thanks playing along with me on Terrific Tag Tuesdays!

  2. This is absolutely lovely!! You have taken so many little things and brought them together in a such a wonderful way! This has been fun to follow!!

  3. Love the library pocket design of this, Kim! And what beautiful papers and colors! The black really makes everything pop, and I adore the glittery snowflake for a touch of glam! <3
