Christmas Tag Class

Since Christmas will be here very soon, I thought a Christmas Tag Class would be good to do. Christmas can be so much fun when you enjoy making your own things. It makes the person that gives the homemade gift feel very happy on the inside. Just like the saying goes, "It is better to give than to receive." I believe when you make something yourself that makes it even better to give than to receive. This is when I thank God for the gifts and talents He has given me. I love the fact that He chose to give me the gift of crafting. So much fun!!

For this class my customers will be making either 2 or 3 of each of these tags. They are going to make 15 tags altogether. I tried to choose colors that would go with whatever wrapping paper they would be. They can also be used on gift bags too. They would just have to wait to put their ties on at the last minute. I just thought of another thing they could use them on. If they make their own bakery items they could be attached to the ribbon. Enough ideas, I am sure you get the picture.

If you have a minute tell me what you think. Which one is your favorite? Mine is the one with the brocade blue scallop circles and shimmery white snowflake.

All of the supplies used to make these tags can be purchased from Stampin' Up! In fact, you can visit my Stampin' Up! website here to make an online order from the catalog.
