Interactive Christmas tags tutorial

Interactive Christmas tags for My Favorite Things.

Hi there! Today I’m stopping by to invite you to check out my tutorial for these three interactive Christmas tags on the MFT YouTube channel.

The first one is really simple… Santa’s list is of course a pull tab that reveals a second, hidden sentiment. Check it out in action in the gif animation below:

It would be so fun to write your own little list by hand, wouldn’t it? The cute Santa is from the BB Jingle All the Way stamp set and the main sentiment is from the new Giftable Greetings set.

Number 2 of 3 interactive Christmas tags. Check out the tutorial on the MFT YouTube channel.

The second tag features two penguins from the adorable BB Holiday Penguins set. When you move the pull tab back and forth, they dance!

The mechanism was created without specific dies using strips of card stock, so anyone can make it. Check out the tutorial for step by step instructions!

Tag number three of three interactive Christmas tags.

The third tag features another Santa and a simple volvelle mechanism. When you rotate the disc, you can read the complete sentiment from the Itty Bitty Gifting set. Here’s a clip of the three tags in action:
