I’m super happy you’ve popped by today as here at Uniko we are super excited to be part of a wonderful festive event…
This is the 7th year the lovely and creative Tracey McNeely from In My Creative Opinion has organised this fun and festive event to spread Christmas Cheer.
Uniko are honoured to be one of the 25 sponsors of the event and to be taking part
Myself and the Uniko Design Team have got our festive on and created some Christmas Tags to share with you, so let’s get to the inspiration!
First up I decided to go a little ‘Traditional’ with a classic red, white and gold combo. I don’t think Festive Sentiments has left my desk since it was released last month!
I dusted off one of my all time favourite Papertrey Ink Tag Sale dies, this is No.5 I love the curved top and the notched bottom of this tag shape and it as a good size, not too big, but not too small!
So for this tag I simply die cut the tag from Stampin’ Up! Real Red card, stamped my sentiment from Festive Sentiments in VersaMark and heat embossed in Gold EP. I added a Soft Stone satin ribbon tail, secured with some Stampin’ Up! bakers twine.
Next, I couldn’t resist a snowflake tag!
I am loving having the Uniko Designer Die Snowflake Trio back in the inventory, I sure have missed using these beauties!
I fairly recently purchased some Stampin’ Up! Mini Pizza Boxes to use as gift packaging this Christmas and I thought it was the perfect size to dress up using a not so recent Stampin’ Up! purchase of the Cheerful Tags dies! I think these are now retired.
There are 2 tags in the set of Cheerful Tags dies and the one I have used has handy ribbon threading holes at the top and bottom of the tag. The tag does come with a back, but I didn’t need it and wanted my tag to be completely flat against the lid of the box.
I didn’t want a design that would take too much focus off the sparkly medium snowflake, but I really wanted to pair it with the recently released Uniko Wonky Stripes Stencil! So, I opted for a soft Altenew grey ink (Silver Stone) to ink the stencil design onto the tag shape. I then simply adhered the tag over the top using foam adhesive. The ribbon is another favourite of mine, Hawaiian Shores from Papertrey Ink.
I had planned to make SO many different tags using Uniko’s festive clear stamps, but time was not on my side! Hopefully I will get to make and share these before the end of the event!
Anyway, the Uniko Design Team have some festive inspiration to share with you too, be sure to stop by their blogs (links below) and leave some love!
