Christmas Tag - CTMH - Holly/Berries JingleJoyPresentasDrinkCup

Please click here for Tip Thursday 12/3 CTMH Cardmaking Workshops. Please visit during the mth of Sept - Dec. for new Tip Thursdays. 


Made this Christmas Tag using many elements. 

Started with CTMH Christmas Tag SVG that comes with purchase of the CTMH Christmas Tags that are wood. Downloaded the SVG, uploaded to Cricut Design Space and cut with my Cricut Explore Air. 

Stamped 'TO:' and 'FROM:' from a CTMH stamp set. 

Added red, pattern cardstock & washi tape. Stamped, die cup single tall present and thought how cool it looks like a drink cup. Recycled a Starbucks plastic lid, colored & attached with foam to top of single present/drink cup. Attached ribbon to drink cup and attached to tag with foam tape. 

Saved the cut out pieces, coloring them with markers & pens and gluing them back in place for an inlaid look. 

Added ribbon to top of tag.

Photographed my fireplace mantle decorated Snoopy & hot chocolate/drink theme.
