Mixed Media Holiday Tags

Why don’t we kick off our countdown to Christmas this week with easy tags that you can decorate your Christmas gifts with? Making personal tags is a really fun way of using up scraps of paper and who does not appreciate a nicely wrapped gift with a one of a kind gift tag?

Glimmer Glaze red = handmade gift cards
To make tags similar to these you only need a few products: ready made tags, patternend paper, ink, flowers and embellishments from your stash. Marie Johansson used these products from the Canvas Corp Brands online store:

Canvas Corp Printed Cardstock Red on White

Canvas Corp Farmhouse Christmas Stripe on Ivory

Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist “Ruby Slippers”

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist “Guilded Gold”

Tattered Angels High Impact Paint “White”


You can make your tags any shape and size you want.  Canvas Corp has a variety of papers with gift tag sayings and icons for the holidays that add the final touch to your tags and then layer with goodies you have about.  

Happy Holiday Gift Tag

Spray your manila tags with the Guilded Gold Glimmer Mist. Mount the manila tag on the red cardstock. Add flowers, twine and buttons.  Cut out sentiments and pictures from the patterned paper and add to the tag. Finish off by splattering over Chalkboard Mist and White High Impact paint.


A bit of glue to make your tags dimensional and look amazing.  Add bits of white gesso or paint and you have instant snow.img_2171
