For my tags, I used the reindeer and a sentiment from the Sparkle and Cheer set along with papers from the Season's Greetings Collection from Echo Park. The tags themselves were created using the Labels 8 Nestabilities for the base, and the Take Note 3 Die for the patterned paper layer. The tab that holds the ribbon was created by diecutting patterned paper with the Keeping Tabs Die.
The reindeer were all stamped in dark brown ink and cut out by hand. Once they were all cut out, I spritzed them with some Maya Mist. Then I used a Red Pearl Pen to add a dot to each reindeer nose. I just LOVED these pens! They are so easy to use. You can create different sizes of pearls depending on how much you put in one spot. When they dry, they look just like a pearl and add such great texture to your project!
I also used the pearl pen to create the grouping of 3 pearls on the bottom corners of the tags. I just LOVE the touch they add! You can view a video about these pens that Taylor posted RIGHT HERE on her blog!
If you'd like tags that are already created for you and all you need to do is the decorating. . .then the Tags and Tag-a-longs are for you! Tags, eyelets and Doodle Twine are all included in the package!
