Time for Tags

Hello Again Craft Friends!!

It's that time again!

Today starts a new challenge on the "Frilly and Funkie" challenge blog.

The new theme is "tag it"

I chose to create a few fun Christmas tags.

Below I have a little close up detail.

I started with the old Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz die- Tree Rings, mini (664232)

Then I stamped the moose from the- "Into The Woods" stamp set in black archival ink.

Next, I ran the base pieces through the embossing folder that came with the die.

To get the wood look I used Walnut stain Distress ink, and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink.

I added flicks of water to give it a little extra grunge.

To finish everything, I used some of the Tim Holtz Stickers, and some eyelets.

I dyed the silk binding ribbon with a mix of Distress inks-Vintage photo, Walnut Stain, Fired Brick, Candied Apple

Supplies Used:
Distress inks-Vintage photo, Walnut Stain, Fired Brick, Candied Apple
Distress Oxide- Vintage Photo
Sizzix Bigz Die- 664232 Tree Rings, Mini
Tim Holtz - small talk -Occasions Stickers


  1. Your tags look so great! I love the moose stamped on the tree rings die set. And the ribbon looks awesome. I’m looking for a tutorial on dying the ribbon...did you just use the stamp pads or maybe you used the reinkers???

    1. I just smoothed the stamp pads on my nonstick mat then sprayed with water.. I scrunch it in a ball and roll it all around in the ink... then sometimes stamp the ink pad right on the scrunched ribbon. Rinker would probably be faster/bolder color. You could also use stains. Usually my fingers are died too! Then I heat dry it all scrunched up to keep it crinkly

    2. Oh! Thanks! Now I’ve got to pin this post so I can find easy for my next ribbon ties. I have to see what my daughter and I have that I can make some similar tags with. I really like these.

  2. I didn't even know there was a mini tree rings! The moose stamped on there is a great idea, and your set of tags is fabulous!

    1. Thanks, yes I got it on ebay I think. It's a very old one. I would love to find the large ring, but haven't yet.

  3. This is fabulous! We always need more handsome tags for our male gift recipients!

  4. I'm so going to make some of these! Had to come back for another look!


Thanks for your comments, I love hearing from you!!
