Season's Greetings!!

It’s that time of year…Are you ready? I am getting there. My girls are super excited and I am super excited for them…:)
I am sharing a few of my Christmas Tags that I made for this year. I like to make an assortment to use with various Christmas wrap and kraft colored bags. Creating my own tags always brings great energy to the gift wrap process.

Season’s Greetings Tags by Karen Jiles Supplies Buttons: Foofala; Hemp, White Embossing Powder:Close To My Heart; Stamp: Hero Arts; Ink: Ranger, Tsukineko; Other: Ribbon, manila tags
I used various colors of distress stains on the tags and the ribbon. The distress stains created this very nice variegated look to the ribbon.  I added some buttons using hemp to continue the handmade feel of the tags. This was a great way to use the embellishments that I have so many of. The last step was to age the tags by sponging on some vintage photo ink. I really enjoyed how these came out this year.  I also love that using various colors gives me many options for color coordination.

Are you creating your tags this Holiday Season?  Are you using various color combinations, too? Please share…
Happy Holidays,


  1. Lovely tags! The recipients will love them :)

  2. Beautiful tags! I love how the white embossing powder against the bold color! I haven't made tags in the past, but I really want to try them this year! TFS!
