 Quick and Easy Christmas Treat Tags Tutorial with Simple Stories Vintage Rustic Lodge

Hello, Friends!  I’m keeping the Christmas Crafting Train rolling with this Quick and Easy Christmas Treat Tags Tutorial.  This idea just popped into my head the other morning, and it was so fun, so cute and so fast to make that I just had to share the tutorial with you.  I think you’re gonna love it!

You can make a basket full of these little beauties and keep them by the front door to give as great last minute gifts.  They are also a perfect way to dress up a gift card or cash gift.  And, you can set up a crafty assembly line with your kids, grands or girlfriends to make it even more fun.  Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Start with a Tag…

Quick and Easy Christmas Treat Tags-Simple Stories Vintage Rustic Lodge-Reneabouquets-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

The base for this cute contraption is a Graphic 45 Square Kraft Tag.  One simple score line, a ribbon closure, and BOOM.  Instant tag pocket.  It’s almost too good to be true!

If one tag is good, two tags are better, right?  So I also dressed up a kraft ATC tag and tucked it into the bundle of goodies.  But you could easily package a single Christmas Cookie or other small treat.  Because there’s just one score line, flat treats work best.  But if you want more dimension, just add a 1/4″ score line!  Easy-peasy!

Holiday Table Place Cards?

If you’re looking for a fun way to dress up your holiday table, these little beauties would make great place cards, too.

Dig around in your stash of Christmas embellishments so you can dress your tag up in it’s holiday best!  This was perhaps my favorite part of the creative process.  I heat embossed some Reneabouquets snowflakes, spritzed faux snow on rusted metal trees, tied bows on mini candy canes, and strung jingle bells from a simple shoestring style bow.

Quick and Easy Christmas Treat Tags Tutorial Tips and Video

To make this project come together quickly, I suggest the following:

  • First, score all your tag bases.
  • Next, die cut all the tag liners using G45 Square and ATC tag dies.
  • Then adhere the liners to the tags.
  • Now, tie all your jingle bells and charms onto bits of string or twine.
  • Prep all your trees.
  • Heat emboss all your snowflakes.

Now you can create your piles and put each tag together quickly.  Cookie breaks are allowed, of course!

If you’d like to see  how easy it is to make these sweet treat holders, please enjoy this video on my YouTube station.

And that’s it for me, friends!  I’ll be back tomorrow with a project share.  Gotta keep that Christmas crafting mojo flowing, right?

    Try again Kathy, the skating into the scene was a fab card with a fab focal point, and your elegant card with reneas chipboard frames and all the traditions of Christmas cards are glorious. My comments did not go through so here they are!

    For these beauties, you have introduced so many ways to use pieces of this and that and bring them together with the treats tucked i to the pocket. Brilliant.

    Very busy Kathy and after 17 years we have a car again, still learning how to use it!

    I think there might be a time limit in commenting, are you able to extend it?

    These are fabulous! So many options for uses and fillers. You’ve got me thinking now how I can use this technique for a swap in the spring
