Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Vintage Paper Christmas Tags

Start off with a few Craft Paper Tags…like these:

I had previously purchased a few vintage Christmas music books (student piano books, hymns, & caroling books)

Gently tear pages into small pieces and glue onto tag with matte medium, mod podge, or craft glue.

Then I used a Black Pitt multi liner pen in XS to draw the images…

I love creating handmade things during the holidays!  Something I have a little more time to do, now that 3 of my 4 kids are out on their own.  I am enjoying being a Grandmother and watching each of my children “grow into their own.”

It’s a blessing I hope I never take for granted:)

Love sharing with you!
