25 Days of Christmas Tags


Hello friends! The Reverse Confetti Crew is playing along today with Tracey McNeely and her awesome 25 Days of Christmas Tags blog series. If you love tags, this is a must-follow series!



During the 25 days, there are lots of chances to win prizes. The main Day One prize has five opportunities for you to enter. All subsequent days have one opportunity each. Visit all the guest designers and comment on their blog posts for yet another chance. Deadline to enter is November 27, 11:59 pm EST. Entry guidelines are posted HERE.


I have a confession: I've never, ever, ever before today made a shaker card, not even back when I first started stamping and shaker cards were "the thing." So for today's tag, I fixed that! 

I decided to make my shaker tag see-through, so all that sparkly stuff is sandwiched between two acetate windows. The window was done using Reverse Confetti's LOVE NOTE and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die sets. I filled the shaker with a DIAGONAL STRIPE PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts die-cut, a sentiment from TINSEL 'N TRIM stamped onto a chevron that I die-cut with the TRIPLE CHEVIES Confetti Cuts die and of course, lots of red, white, green, and silver sequins, as well as a sprinkle of silver glass glitter. 


I needed to add some kind of tag topper, so before I adhered the woodgrain frame to its corresponding acetate panel, I die-cut a green label using the LABEL ME Confetti Cuts die, folded it in half, slipped it around the woodgrain frame, and topped it with a ribbon/button/twine accent. 











Thanks for stopping by!

You sure packed a lot of coolness into one little tag. I especially love the wood grain paper you used. I love wood grain. I never would have thought to use it for a tag. Well done.

The tag is darling. I'm still trying to perfect my shaker before I send it out to someone.
Glad to see I'm not the only one who's not gotten on the bandwagon.
thanks for sharing a great tag.
