Parcel and Post Christmas Tags Tutorial

Spellbinders Parcel and Post Christmas Tags Tutorial for Throwback Thursday

Hello, Friends!  For today’s Throwback Thursday, I have a Spellbinders Parcel and Post Christmas Tags Tutorial for you.  Christmas in my house involves the giving of a lot of homemade baked goods, and these adorable tags are the perfect addition to a cookie plate or loaf of quick bread.  They also make great gift tags or place cards.  The best thing about these darling little tags is that they are a great way to use up scraps of paper.


The base for each tag is a (retired) Graphic 45 Alpha Tag.  If you have these in your stash, this project is a great way to use them up.  But any regular sized G45 Tag will work just as well.  First, use the G45 Regular Tag Die to cut liners for the front and the back of each tag.

Parcel and Post Christmas Decorations

I’m a big fan of Christmas greenery dies.  The Parcel and Post Christmas Decorations die set is loaded with greenery, holly, foliage, and candy dies.

Before you start making your tags, set up a little assembly line of tags, liners, and die cuts.  This way you can quickly assemble a whole pile of these sweet gift tags. Now arrange these die cuts over your patterned paper.

Next, create a tag sentiment with the Parcel and Post Greetings Clear Stamps.  You’ll not only find Christmas stamps, but sentiments for all occasions.  It’s a great set, and I love the fonts.

Got flowers? Break out the poinsettia die from Celebrate the Season Sled Dies. Then use paper scraps to create a pile of pretty poinsettias for your tags.

Look how cut the candy cane and peppermint candy pieces are.  Like I said, this is such a fun set of dies.

    These are so gorgeous, Kathy. They would be terrific as Christmas gifts packed with goodies and maybe a Starbucks gift card. I bought the Graphics 45 die so that I can make these tags. I was inspired by a small, bound folio you made using these tags . They are huge. But I haven’t started a project because I don’t know what size eyelets to buy that will fit. Any idea? Thanks.

      The poinsettia die that I used is part of the Winter Welcome Sled, but all the other dies are from Parcel and Post Christmas. The papers are scraps from my stash. I hope that answers your question. Thanks so much for your interest. Happy crafting!

    Little works of art, LOVE them all. I am still not thinking of Christmas, ha ha ha. Kidding, I am looking to get started, it’s always a rush if I don’t and for the last few years I have sworn that I will start early so I’m ready this time around. Really enjoyed this post, as I do love tags. 🙂
