Easy Christmas Tags - Concord and 9th + Papertrey Ink | Tutorial Tuesday

Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday! A new series on my blog, where I'll be sharing quick, easy, and animated step-by-step instructions once a month! Today, I'm sharing these lacey, traditional tags, which are sure to dress up any gift! 

This year, I'm using these sweet tags to tie brown paper packages of mulling spices for friends + family! What will you use yours for?


1. Start by die-cutting the floral cluster shape
2. Stamp the outline guide by using the large background stamp and lining it up with the die-cut shape
3. Stamp center of flower, buds, and berries
4. Stamp leaves
4. Die-cut a scalloped heart
5. Using a marker, color the scallops only (easiest to do with brush tip markers)
6. Die-cut sentiment
7. Adhere floral cluster, sentiment and pearls to heart base

Once these are done, it's super easy to add sparkle, rhinestones, glitter, Nuvo drops, or any other little accents to dress them up even more! 

It's also super easy to switch up the colors to more contemporary hues or match them up with your wrapping paper! I thought the green and red combo looked rather lovely with my kraft packages. If I get around to making another round, I'll be sure to experiment with colors that are a little more eclectic! 

Thanks for joining me today friends! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. I will be back again next month, to share another.
