And now it's time to get in the holiday spirit! We begin with this wonderfully festive tag by Denise. This tag would look amazing on a Christmas tree! You can also give tags as gifts, use them as gift toppers or string a bunch of tags together to create a decorative banner! Tags have so many uses and they are so much fun to create! You can gather the family together to create fun and beautiful tags this season. The Graphic 45 Large Tag Album Staples make the perfect base for any holiday tag creation. We love how Denise used strips of the 12 Days of Christmas papers to create the shape of a Christmas tree! That's such a clever technique! Top your tag with some pretty ribbon to give it some extra elegance. With 12 Days of Christmas there's so many ways to create the perfect holiday craft!

Here is a gorgeous altered book that Rhea created with 12 Days of Christmas. This is such a wonderful idea for a personalized handmade gift. Altered books and mini albums are also perfect for housing your precious photos from your holiday festivities. With all the vibrant colors and enchanting designs from 12 Days of Christmas, you'll never be without inspiration this holiday season! Have a look at this joyful book and think about what kind of holiday craft you'd like to create with 12 Days of Christmas! Here is what Rhea had to say about this exquisite creation.
"On this project I decided to buff up my fussy cutting skills. I simply layered imagery from this lovely new paper line to create a page for each number in the song. To soften the look I bound the book with ribbon instead of using the rings that were provided. Don’t forget to ink the edges of your fussy cut images, this helps to create a finished look every time!" -Rhea
