24 Tags of Christmas 2016: Easy Copic Matchbook Tags

This tag is in honor of a friend who’s started to collect Copics – but not for shading. It’s a super easy way to add color and make it look like you “meant” to go simple!

Easy Copic Matchbook Tags

Today’s tag only needs ONE Copic marker. Yes, ONE! Instead of making it a heavily-colored tag, try just highlighting one portion of each image. When the stamp set is as adorable as Dairy Christmas , it’s easy to let the humor take the stage! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

You can use these just as tags – or as a delivery system for a gift card!


You can see all the tags from all years in the 24 Tags of Christmas Gallery!


Tradition is to give away the 24 tags…I’ll pick 24 winners from blog posts and YT comments, so leave some love and maybe you’ll win! Woohoo!
