Wrapping presents is one of my favorite parts of the holidays!  Each year, I love to make folded gift tags using my Christmas card scraps!

For these cards, I used a Basis Light Brown cardstock for the base.  I cut the cardstock into three 6 x 3 pieces, and used those to create 3x3 cards. 

Next, I used some scraps I had in several Basis colors (magenta, teal, green, Dark Red, Red, Natural, and Light Lime. )  

I cut some scraps into 3" x 1/4" or 1/8" strips.  I also punched out polka dots using a 5/8" and a 1/4" hole punch.  

I like to place polka dots off the edge of the card, and then trim them to create the look of patterned paper. 



Finally, I used some scrap 3" long pieces of ribbon to create stripes on some cards.  I had some leftover bling, and I used some of that, too.  These are really very easy to make, and when you use scraps, you're actually helping clear out some craft clutter, too.  :) 


Happy Stamping!
