Blog Hop AND Baseball Party Decor

Hi everyone!  Lots going on today!  I'm hopping along with Lori Whitlock's Creative Team for our December blog hop, AND I have a fun project posted over on Doodlebug's blog.  

First, my Doodlebug project ...  the new Home Run collection is perfect for all of your baseball themed projects.  I made this set of party decor for birthdays or team parties, and it was really easy to create!  Visit Doodlebug Designs to get more details.... 




...now scroll down to continue Lori Whitlock's blog hop!  I've got a Christmas tag tutorial to share with you!

For my blog hop project, I created some Christmas tags for my gifts.  These are really fun to make and super easy!

To make your own Christmas gift tags:

1.  Duplicate Lori's tag file several times on an 8.5x11" mat in your Silhouette software.


2.  Go to Lori's shop and download Christmas shapes and phrases ... both work great!

3.  Resize the phrases and shapes so that they fit into the tag shape, and add fill color if needed.



4.  Select the Christmas shape or phrase and hit "no cut" in the cut settings.  Be sure that the tag shape is still set to cut.

5.  Once you have colors filled, shapes sized, and cut settings chosen, PRINT the tags on to white cardstock.  Be sure registration marks on turned on!

6.  Once printed, use your Silhouette to cut the tags out.  You can also create an OFFSET background to mat the tag on colored card stock. 

7.  Finally, add ribbon, Doodlebug's chunky twine, gems, or other details to really make your tags the highlight of your Christmas packaging.  



I know that was a quick tutorial, so let me know if you have any questions by leaving a comment.

Now, back to Lori's blog hop .... don't miss these awesome goodies too!
