Graphic 45 Tags & Bows for the Holidays

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend wherever you are. Today, I'm happy to share a fun and easy holiday craft idea you can enjoy with friends or family. Gorgeous holiday tags and a fun bow-making tutorial using Graphic 45's "Twelve Days of Christmas" collection. I'm featured over on the Graphic 45 blog today with my project, so be sure to hop over there and leave a comment so you can be entered to win their fabulous prize package this week. And while you're there, don't miss Denise Hahn's beautiful ballet slippers she created. She shares a video tutorial as well.

Here's a look at my tags. They were so fun and simple to make. All I used was Twelve Days of Christmas chipboard, flowers, and some pattern paper.

Here's my video that includes a bow-making tutorial toward the end. 

I'll be happy to send you the PDF template for the bows. Just e-mail me at
or you can grab the attached PDF off the Graphic 45 blog.

Let me know if you try out the bows. I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Love these! They are so, so very pretty :)

  2. These are just beautiful tags! I love that they can be made so quickly and easily with the chipboard. (I'm already feeling the time crunch of Christmas! :) And the bows ..... LOVE! Thanks so much for the template!

  3. These bows are perfect for my creations for Christmas. Love the tags as well, really elegant and would dress up any package. Thank you for sharing.

  4. OOoo Thank you for the bow template! I have wanted the paper bow die and this way I can still make the bows without the die!! and you showed such great ways to use it in different ways!! Thanks Annette!!

  5. Oh man...I meant to tell you those are some over the top GORGEOUS tags girl...they look anything BUT simple I'll tell you! I LOVE them!! :D

  6. Sensational gift tags, Annette - wow! Sorry I've missed so much... Between moving house (clearing and leaving the family home of 40 years) and work, I've fallen off the wagon a bit in Craftyblogland! But I'm so glad I'm back in time to catch these!

  7. WOW, your tags are SPECTACULAR, Annette!

  8. Love love love G45 (of course) and how you've made the cute tags. Especially love the bow tutorial and all of your ideas. Now I want to get busy in front of my TV and make a bunch of the bows to put on my packages, rather than buying those cheap fake bows that are so "all the same and nothing pretty". Thank you for your great videos!

  9. Love the bows!! Thanks for the file.

  10. Awesome Video Annette!
    I will certainly be making some of the bows, and maybe even some tags.
    Thank you for sharing!!
