Happy Christmas 3 ways – step by step

We’re all papercrafters, here. And that means visions of sugarplums (and Christmas crafting) start dancing in our heads as soon as October hits. Help those visions translate into reality by planning now to create handmade packaging for your family and friends—and help your customers do the same! Keep it simple or make it fancy. All that matters is that you add a bit of yourself to your giving this year by making it handmade and heartfelt.
The standout on this sweet Christmas packaging is our adorable, rustic tag. And trust us—once you make the first one, creating multiples is easy. Tip: Besides using the ripped paper technique, stamp off the solid trees to add depth. Once you finish stamping, tie the tag to the Mini Shipping Box with a bit of Linen Thread. So cute!
We fancied up our second tag by adding a variety of stamped embellishments. Just run the stamped images through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Warm Wraps Dies, then adhere them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. We also added die-cut Real Red Cardstock trim along with open-weave ribbon and gold metallic trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack for extra charm. 
We stepped up our final project by embossing the tag with the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder. We then adhered pretty wreath sprigs and finished with a bit of ink splattering using the Aqua Painter. This tag is so festive you could almost hang it on the Christmas tree!
