Papercraft Star Challenge 23


Today I am super excited for this post because it's my first project I've created for Papercraft Star as a Design Team member! This week we are playing along with Challenge 23 by creating some fun holiday tags. 

Creating these tags really got me in the mood for Christmas! I can't wait to use these for some gifts I will be giving away this season and the challenge at Papercraft Star was perfect to get me started on all my holiday gift wrapping! 

I used the Tag Sale 1 die cut from Papertrey Ink and adhered a simple strip of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye. I just love the Alphabet Soup line - it's not a holiday paper, but don't you agree that the colors make it perfect for the holidays?

Next, I added some red velvet ribbon on the patterned paper. Then, I added layers of poinsettia blossoms in between layers of more patterned paper using my Beautiful Blossoms II die cut. Last, I stamped my sentiment and a row of adorable snowflakes!

Now it's your turn! Hop on over to Papercraft Star and play along! You have until Saturday, December 4, at noon (eastern standard time) to enter your project before voting begins! You are all invited to play along! Here are the deets...

  8. Kim these are just fantastic!! The flowers are great and I love the way the green and red pop against the kraft!
