12 Tags of Christmas, Announcements, Cardmaking

Welcome to The 12 Tags of Christmas + New Challenge!

Welcome back to the blog, crafty friends! Today, we’re thrilled to announce the return of our favorite event of the year – The 12 Tags of Christmas!

This year, we asked our fabulously talented design team to create a gift tag inspired by their favorite Christmas or wintertime song. Their fun and festive tags are sure to get you in the holiday spirit! Along with the inspiration our team is sharing, we always look forward to seeing what our designers’ tags inspire YOU to make. We welcome you to join in the fun by creating your own tag inspired by each day’s song.

But that’s not all – by linking up your tag, you’ll also be entered for a chance to win a shopping spree at Ellen Hutson LLC! That’s right! One lucky winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to ellenhutson.com!

To make it easy to share your tag, this post will be “pinned” to the top of our blog from December 1st through the 16th. You can click the links below to each day’s post – or keep scrollin’ down – for new inspiration every day!

    Do tags have to use only Ellen Hutson products, or are any products permissible? Always look forward to the 12 Tags of Christmas! 🙂

      Hi Andrea, thank you for asking! Yes – you are welcome to use products from other brands, as well! We can’t wait to see what you create. Thanks for following along!

    Where can I find the list of carols for this year?

    I see lots of tags are being entered in multiple challenges. I thought the rules said tags entered must be made only for the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas. Hoping you can check for that before the winner is announced. Thanks so much.
