[Video]Cricut Art Philosophy Campout Manly Birthday Tag

Yesterday was my husband's birthday and I wanted to decorate his gift package with a cute "manly" tag.  I love this tag that folds open from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge.  

Check out the cuts below:
And from an oldie but goodie Cricut cartridge - Campout:

I used new papers from Close to My Heart that will be available starting February 1.  The wood grain wrapping paper is from Target.

Here's a closeup of the tag below. 
I wanted to use the Close to My Heart Card Chatter - Birthday stamp set because it is retiring January 31 and it's one of my favorite stamp sets!  Take a look below:

  17. I do make my own gift tags, but I have to admit I have never used this cut even tho I own the cartridge! You show me so many things I have missed! And I seem to love 'em all! Thank you!

    I cut a number of tags at once and then have the blanks to decorate when I need one! I'll keep one of these made so I remember how you did it...it's very nice for a male! Those are the hardest to create...they end up looking feminine when I'm done with 'em most the time, but this one is PERFECT! Thank you!!!

  18. What a cute idea! Thanks for the chance to win that adorable cartridge!
    I made tags for the first time this year. I used CTMH cartridges and stamps. I am already planning tags for this for Christmas. What Fun and what great products!

  19. I like to make personalized gift tags. I also like to have gift tags made up and on hand. That way if I don't have time to make a card, I can attach a tag to the front of a card blank and it serves as an instant card.

  22. Right now I do not use Cricut Craft room because Cricket is holding up my carts that are linked to a dead Gypsy. They want $39.00 to fix it and guarantee that it will work when done. I just use my carts on my machine. I really like the Garden Soup cart, though. Great images. carjo40@gmail.com

  23. I meant to say there is NO guarantee my Gypsy will work. carjo40@gmail.com

  24. I have only made a couple plain tags, but think after seeing yours it might be fun to make them instead of buying them, a lot more personal. The one you made for your hubby turned out really nice. TFS

  39. I make gift tags all the time as well.....however...sadly enough, some of my friends and relatives don't realize how much/little time and effort I put on them...so..they throw them away. Although, now, most of my friends and relatives say.."how cute is this tag...Fran, do you want it back to scrapbook?"...and of course, i always say "sure!!
    Thanks for sharing your tag with ous.

  42. I make tags for Christmas every year. Don't usually for other times because there is usually no question who the present is for. Hadn't really thought of using them strictly as an embellishment. Have to give that a try.

  46. I have not used the Cricut craft room. It is on my list of things to do. I would have to relocate my cricut to get it attached to the computer..... Not sure if I want to do that. I just head to my Expression and cut out what I need.
    I do love your tag. Something manly. Terrific.

  71. I haven't made any tags, but your cute tag has inspired me to branch out and try a few. Thanks!

  72. Sometimes I make gift tags but I usually don't have time to always make them

    ReplyDelete
  73. Most people don't even pay attention to the detail I put into wrapping so I figure what's the point? If they were as much fun to make as this looks and don't take much time, though, I might change my mind.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I've never tried gift tags, but they're on my "to do" list for next Christmas. I'm hoping to get them made during the summer so that I'll be all ready for gift wrapping at holiday time next year!
    Thanks so much for the chance to win "Garden Soup"!! Love the cuts on that cart!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Sometimes I don't plan very well and don't have time to make a cute tag. If I am organized enough at that particular time that I do a present and give myself time, I will do a matching/coordinating tag. I don't do them nearly as often as I should because they can be the "wowser" to a very plainly wrapped or bagged present.
