12 Days of Christmas Joyeaux Noel
Graphic 45 Regular Tag Album

Step 1. Cut out the following images from your Ladies Dancing paper.

Step 2. Flip your Ladies Dancing paper over to reveal the blue side; trace 1 tag shape and cut out. Adhere this piece to the front side of one of your tags, blue side up. Use a nail file to sand edges for a faux snowy look. 

Step 3. Cut a 3” x 3” square from your My True Love paper; flip paper over and cut out one of the 12 days of Christmas lists.

Step 4. Take your Joyeaux Noel paper and cut off the Ten Lords A Leaping border. Cut off a 3” long piece of this border. Take remaining Joyeaux Noel paper, flip over to reveal red side, and trace another tag shape. Cut out and adhere to the back of your tag. 

 Step 5. Adhere 12 Days of Christmas list. Adhere Ten Lords A Leaping border. Adhere only the left, bottom, and right sides of the My True Love piece to create a pocket. Adhere “JOY” and attach fussy cut flowers with foam dots.

Step 6. Adhere flower bunch, bird, and square with foam dots. Adhere some spray behind flower bunch. Take ribbon and adhere ends behind tag. Apply Stickles around the edge of your tag.
