Festive Friday - Fun With Die Cut Alphas!

Festive Friday Banner

Hello, friends! It's Festive Friday and this week I have a set of cute, quickie tags that I made pairing the new XO Skinny Mini Tags and the Smooth Alphabet. These tags are such a great size! They're perfect for smaller boxes or bags, but they're still plenty big enough to fit all the vital information. Let's get to it!


I began by xyroning a few pieces of Bitty Big: Pure Poppy patterned paper. You may have noticed that I really like to cut this plaid pattern on a bias, but the pattern is actually printed straight. That means I have a whole lot of little triangles of patterned paper hanging around and these tags were a fantastic way to use up some of those scraps. I die cut the tags from the patterned paper and then used the Smooth Alphabet (I used mostly the lower case) to cut the words and monogram from the tags.


Then, I die cut the tags again, this time from Vintage Jadeite cardstock. I heat embossed the "To:/From:" from Christmas Cuts Sentiments with white embossing powder before removing the adhesive backing from the patterned paper tags and sandwiching the two together. I finished the tags off with a bit of white crochet thread. I really love how clean and graphic these are while still being fun and colorful!

I hope you've enjoyed this week's Festive Friday! Only one Friday left before the big day!
