Christmas tags with Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

This is one of my favorite things to do every year with the Chomas Creations holders!  Make my own Christmas tags!  You can do a whole page at a time, this has 24 tags on it!  You can get the Christmas tags file for Silhouette Studio here... tag file

Well now, how about a tutorial on making your own tags?
I added a 12x12 sheet of paper to the Silhouette mat.  Then I added the Signo Uniball white gel pen to the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

Now in Silhouette Studio I clicked on the outside of the design (1), this highlights all of the tag shapes.  Then click on the cutline settings icon (2) and turn off the cutlines by clicking no cut (3).  Now you can draw all of the snowflakes and the to and from.  The to and from are a Lettering Delights thin font.  The Signo Uniball gel pen needs a bit of drying time so I set my speed to 1 and my thickness to 5.

Now we need to cut the tags.  In Studio again click on the outside of the tags (1) and click on cut (2). 
Now we need to turn off the snowflakes so they don't cut.  Click close to one of the "m" in from to highlight all of the snowflake pattern (1) and click on no cut (2).  Now you can replace the adjustable marker holder with the blade and cut the design.
Now your tags are all done!  I used the white but you can use any color for these!  And you can always use the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with most gel pens to center them and use this design.  I did take a few seconds to fill in the to and from words with white gel pen so they would look solid.

Love these tags. How do you get the lettering delights thin fonts to work in the silhouette software? I thought they only worked with make the cut.

The .ttf (true type font) files work in any program, including Silhouette Studio.
