…not the turkey kind!

If you’re anything like me, you had a fair pile of Christmas patterned paper leftover from your holiday card and papercrafting.  Sadly, some of the scraps in the pile I had were leftovers from last year too! 

I decided I didn’t want to go for 2 years of leftovers when I take out my Christmas goodies next year so I only put away full sheets or larger pieces that were “uniform” in size (i.e. didn’t have a shape punched out of them) and took all the remaining partial sheets of paper as well as cardstock scraps and trimmed them down to make a batch of tags.

Here’s what I came up with (in this picture, only a couple of the tags are completed…I hadn’t finished colouring and die cutting all the images at this point):

As you can see, there is quite the variety of papers in this batch and you will probably recognize some of them from cards and notepads I made this Christmas.

The two “holly jolly” tags are a good representation of how all the tags looked once completed.  I used a variety of images from PTI tiny treats Christmas and some Martha Stewart baker’s twine for the tag ties.  I made a total of 28 tags from my Christmas scrap leftovers and any small pieces of cardstock/paper that weren’t large enough to turn into a tag were tossed in the trash so I can start fresh when I begin Christmas crafting next year.

Incidentally, these tags will be gifted to someone else.  I just use the peel and stick tags when I wrap gifts unless it’s something handmade and then I’ll make a coordinating tag for that specific gift.
