Holly Tags with Free Cut File
I love to study historical traditions, so I’ve been reading today about holly and its role in the Christmas season.
Here are just a few links to articles about its use in Christmas tradition, in case you’re interested:

Why do we decorate with holly at Christmas?
Since I’ve been busy creating gift tags, I wanted to share with you these simple gift tags that I created using my new “holly” SVG file. In case you missed my first free SVG, you can find it HERE.
My basic oval tag was created with my Silhouette Cameo 2. I drew an oval 2″ x 3″ and then did an internal offset to make the white part of the tag.
I used a sharpie fine point pen to do the “To” and “From” lettering on my tag. The ink from these pens is smooth, permanent and dries quickly, so there’s no smudge.
For the rest of the tag, I simply layered the elements of my SVG file and cut them out on my Silhouette cameo. I used tape runner to adhere them to my tag.
I use a single hole punch on one end of my oval. The red gingham ribbon gives this tag a traditional look and it’s so quick and easy!
I’ve included a zip file for you so that you can use the format you want for your machine.

These would also work well as a card element or you could cut it out from heat transfer or other vinyl for your Christmas crafting.
