Hi there, it’s Katelyn from A Creative Journey guest designing on the blog today and sharing with you these three fun Christmas Gift Tags that can be added to any holiday gift. With Christmas right around the corner I thought it would be fun to create these gift tags using a variety of fun Christmas dies from Joset Designs and pair them with Els van de Burgt dies. Let me share with you how to create each tag at home.
