24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Concertina tags

Concertina tags

The tags this year go from quick ones to more intricate ones….and this is probably the most intricate, but involves no coloring aside from choosing papers. BUT if you have a little child who LOVES to sort things – and I know several kids who just love making piles of matching things!–then do a bunch of diecutting, and ask the kiddos to sort the matching letters! It’ll make assembling the diecuts easy…and maybe if they have tiny fingers they’ll also be able to help put the “puzzle” together with you. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.


As is tradition, I’ll be choosing winners for each of the 24 tags made in these 6 videos – leave comments on the blog as well as on YouTube for more chances to WIN!

Christmas Bible Craft: supply tote!

All week I’m offering up tutorials on my other channel – this is a tote I purchased and altered to be able to watercolor on it. I keep our group’s shared supplies in it; consider having everyone in your group donate a few items, so you have something that guests to your group can borrow. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YT.

  4. All the tiny pieces!!! I would have sorted them all too though. I like the color scheme 🙂

  5. Oh my goodness, another set of dies on my wishlist! I love this kind of project. I often use Jennifer’s tip to use Glad Press n Seal when I cut out different papers when I work on a quilt project. Not sure how well it would work on these tiny pieces, but I want to try. What a fun and versatile set!

  6. That was one hot mess until you sorted them out. I love the three dies and options to cut apart or make into an ornament. Great colors and great video.

  7. Tags are my thing. I try for something unusual for family and friends every year. I think they will love the slider tags.

  27. Amazing! You are definitely dedicated, and committed, to your tasks! I think you are my hero and I wanna be you when I grow up! Lol

  28. I love how these could be ornaments after the presents are opened.

  29. Your commitment to completing a task with all those letters and pieces is amazing. This is tedious I am sure but well worth the effort. These turned out lovely and the fact that they can be an ornament is wonderful too. Great job!

  31. I love the letter scramble!

  32. Love this tag! Thanks for making a tag that requires no coloring.

  33. What a fun project! And thanks for the tip on using the sticky thing to position those tiny die cut pieces – I’ve been using my little tweezers for jobs like this, but even the it’s a job sometimes. I may not purchase this die set for tags now, but I can put it on my wish list and suggest it for a gift this year.

  34. Bright and fun!

  35. Great colours for these tags, the pile of jumble bits would have been me, the trouble is now my little ones are much older I get no help. These are stunning, in 3D they would make excellent baubles for the tree when you take them off your present x

  36. These are very very cool! I love the color scheme you chose, too! 🙂

  37. Great inlay project! TFS!
