Creative Construction with Blueprints - Holiday Tags


We love Blueprints because they take the guesswork out of crafting beautiful cards (and tags!) in quick fashion when we’re short on time or inspiration. We also love them for their versatility and ability to be mixed and matched when we have the time and inspiration to create something truly unique. Our Creative Construction Challenge focuses on these attributes each month, challenging the team to either assemble a card based on one of the provided Blueprints sketches or design an original design combining elements from the featured Blueprints.

Adding a handmade touch is a wonderful way to personalize your thoughtful gifts. Stocking up on holiday tags is a fun, quick, and easy way to prepare for the gift giving season that is about to commence. Join us this month as we look at holiday tags featuring Blueprints.
Handmade tags by Amy Yang featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Amy created a festive collection of holiday tags using the various dies found in the Blueprints Tag Builder 6 Die-namics. Each tag features the adorable critters from the Dashing Deer stamp set in bright, non-traditional holiday colors.

Handmade tags by Donna Mikasa featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Donna created a trio of holiday gift tags that feature a cheery red color palette complete with a Christmas lip balm surprise inside. These would be great on gifts, tucked inside stockings or hung on the Christmas tree for someone special.
