Christmas gift tags with left overs, diecuts and AI images

I always start early with the Christmas presents. Then, I do wrap them straight away, so the family will not see the gifts. Therefore, I need to have the Christmas gift tags finished early. Wrapping presents is important to me, and so are the gift tags. A few weeks ago, I wrote about how to create AI images. This was more a thing I had to look in to as a teacher, as kids use more and more AI. After playing a bit with picture generators and different prompts, I found a few prompts that would work for my style. I often like vintage photos and water colour images, with a typical Norwegian “Barn santa”, that would be more like what others would call a garden gnome. So this is what I was trying to go for.


I used the Silhouette to cut the tags and the panels from left over older papers.  Diecuts are from newer different Christmas paper collections, and has been fussy cut from the papers. The white flowers are handmade, from diecuts of poinsettas from white card stock.

The images were collected and printed, before they were cut. I took the short solution, and and my Silhouette with the print ansd cut function. I also cut white backgrounds, that were mounted with 3D foam tape behind the images. I do like dimentions to my projects, and 3D foam tape is one of those things I use a lot.

Here are some of the images I used for my tags. Creating more images can be done using this instruction (10 images per day, per unit).

I hope this inspired you to start with your Christmas tags.
