In this tutorial, Cheiron Brandon shows you how to create these quick and easy gift tags using the newest member of the Distress family, Lumberjack Plaid.

Instructions

Happy November! Hello there crafty friends. It’s Cheiron Brandon here and today I have a fun and easy project for you using four colors of Distress (ink and oxides) and one stamp set showing off the newest color in the Distress line, Lumberjack Plaid. This red goes with just about everything! We will be making a bunch of small #5 Distress Tags that can be used for gift tags, or turned into quick and easy cards.
