Gold Foil Christmas Tags

This holiday season I have been so inspired to create Christmas tags!  There are so many different ways you can use tags. You can create pretty packages, use them on cards or even on your scrapbook pages. I received a fun package of sparkly gold products in the mail from a friend of mine so I decided to turn them into pretty little tags.

What you might find interesting is that the designer paper used to create these beautiful tags was not Christmas paper at it. It is a beautiful pack of designer paper from the Bundle of Love suite. But it certainly worked well for these tags.

There are some fabulous gold products in the catalogs this year. Gold sequins, foil snowflakes, ribbon, glimmer paper, foil, patterned paper…just to name a few. I just love the elegant and sparkly look of gold on my projects.

Now there are a variety of different die cuts and punches you can use to create your tags. So grab some of your favorite supplies and get busy creating! I find that when I layer different shapes together it gives my projects a fun look!

To create the tag, I would recommend using the scalloped tag topper punch. It creates a pretty little top for your tag with very little effort. The tags I showcased here measure 2 x 4-1/4 inches in size. The opening for the tag punch is 2 inches so you will want to keep your tags 2 inches or less in width. Once you have created the base of the tag, then decorate as desired!

50th Anniversary Cards

This year my parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary! I can’t believe it! WOW! Where has the time gone? Since this is such a special milestone, we decided to throw them a surprise anniversary party! We can’t let this special occasion go by unnoticed, right?  Their anniversary is July 1st so I knew I had to work fast to get the invitations created and out in the mail.  Of course, I had to use the traditional gold color on their invites. I have lots of gold too…gold glimmer paper…gold embossing powder…gold vellum…it seemed like way too many options! So I pulled out all of my gold supplies and began putting together a few different designs. Here’s what I came up with…

I can so much fun creating these!  Now that I had designed a few prototypes, I had to choose one of them!  I think that was the most difficult decision!  Each one of these cards was so pretty and unique. However, I decided to go with the first one!  It was the easiest to create and, since I had to make 30 of them, it seemed like the best choice!

Now I mentioned at the beginning of this post that this was a surprise party. Well, unfortunately we had to spoil the surprise when we learned they were planning to go out of town for their anniversary! Whew!  Good thing we caught them early enough before they planned the vacation! They will still go out of town…they now plan to do it after the party!
