Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas

I watched Tim do his tags last year and they were so cool but I never joined in the fun - so this year when I saw his first tag I thought I'd give it a go! His tag is so very cool (the one at the top), but I didn't have hardly any of the scrappy supplies he used, so I made my own interpretation of his tag. It's close anyway...LOL. I didn't have any of the crackle paint, stamps or the grunge stickles that he used. I did color the tag like he did, but them I heat embossed it. I didn't have a snowman stamp, so I drew my own on chipboard, cut him out, inked him, then heat embossed and stickled him. I used some snowflake stickers instead of stamping them. I stamped my tags. I did do the scarf like he did by making my own wired ribbon. I also stickled the top to look like icicles. It's similar to his - and I like the way it turned out! Can't wait to see what he does tomorrow!! I have my tag ready to go!


  1. Actually trying his tag list is on my "list to do when I have a quiet Dec" which I'm determined will be next year. I've done a couple but never all twelve... Thanks for the reminder that he's started.

  2. I love these! They are stunning! I saw his video on them too and thought they would be fun to make!
