I don't normally make many tags for presents - mainly because we don't buy or exchange a lot of presents at Christmas! So apart from a few close friends and each other there's not a lot of call for tags (or wrapping paper!) LOL
Over the last couple of years OH and I have not exchanged presents either but this year we thought we would just buy each other one little token - OH already knows what he's getting 'cos he sent me the link to order it!!! (Otherwise I'd have definitley bought the wrong thing!) - And he says he still wants it wrapped up so he can open it on Christmas Day.. so I had to buy a whole roll of wrapping paper for this present that measures about 10" by 8"!!!!
In honour of the wrapping paper (which is Kraft based) I made this tag to go on it.
Kraft tag stamped with a music script then gold embossed round the edge. It was a bit daft stamping the entire tag then covering it but I wasn't thinking at the time......doh!
Script paper distressed, embossed and layered on top.
Gold spiders webby stuff ripped and stuck on right hand side and a metal poinsettia corner attached.
The vellum greeting is from a Papermania set I bought last Christmas (and never used - no change there then) and I glued on a couple of snowflake buttons.
Stamped the Father Christmas image onto Kraft paper then cut it out. I painted it using Distress Inks and used a white gel pen dotted onto the beard and hair then rubbed it in with my finger before it dried.
I punched a hole in the top of the tag and threaded through some ribbon and attached this beautiful vintage cotton crochet 'star' with a Christmas brad.
The fabric metallic reindeer is from my stash and I finished the tag with some vintage cotton lace along the bottom edge.

Hope you're all not getting too stressed out about Christmas - as we don't have to worry about anyone else but the two of us our Christmas is traditionally quiet -
but we did put up some lights outside yesterday and have put a tree on the landing in front of the window so it can be seen from the lane!
Oh and please say hello to my little friend who stands 3" tall and changes colour when my PC is switched on....
