Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas 2009

For those of you who haven't seen them yet, here are Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas 2009!!

If you would like to know how to make one of these tags, go to Tim Holtz's Blog where the instructions for each tag are included. Each one of these creations started with a blank manila tag...so all the backgrounds are also hand made with ink!

I have to admit, I was completely impressed when I saw the amount of work and the creativity that went into each tag! So without further talk...here they are!!

Tim has graciously allowed us to post photos of his Christmas tags on our blogs. I hope to try to make one or two of these soon. If I do, I'll be sure and post them here. There's more than a few that I just love!

Some of the techniques he showed us were just amazing. It's mind boggling what one can do with some paper, ink, metal, and the right tools. I can't wait to try some of these out!

If you double click on the pictures, it'll show you a larger version of the photo. Just click on the back arrow to return to this page.

Thanks for visiting!
