I love donut puns. So I had to make some Christmas tags using a donut pun.
Extra Details: I started with a full sheet of white card stock. I drew a line 2 inches from each long side. Then using a grey marker, a green glitter gel pen, and a pink gel pen, I created a plaid pattern. I then die cut the tag shape from the plaid paper. I made sure to line the bottom of the tag up with the open area to leave myself room for the sentiment. I trimmed a piece of grey card stock to about 1/8th of an inch and adhered it over the line at the bottom of the tag. I added the sentiment in grey ink.
Then, I started working on the donuts. I white heat embossed the donuts on dark brown card stock. I fussy cut them out, leaving a small border. I stamped the donuts on some white card stock with Barely Beige ink. I fussy cut out just the frosting on the line this time. I went over the sprinkles with the same gel pens I used to create the plaid paper. To give the frosting a shiny appearance, I smooshed the pieces in Versa Mark ink and clear embossed the whole thing. Then I adhered the frosting to the brown donuts. I used foam tape to adhere the donuts to the tags.
I stamped, fussy cut, and colored some holly leaves to add to the donuts. I think they add just the right touch.
To finish the tags, I die cute some plain white tags. I stamped “to”, “from”, and a donut in grey ink on them. Lastly, I adhered the plaid tag to the plain tag and added some grey reinforces.
