Challenge #24 - Gifts and Tags! Christmas Tags, Birthday Tags, Goodie Tags, Gift Wrappings and Packages - we want to see them all! The challenge this time is to create a tag! You must include at least one Serendipity Stamps image (Stamp or Die) on your project.
Check out the inspiring designs from the Team this week:
Jenny Gropp - you are here!
I made some really simple tags today... when the presents are being wrapped and it's crunch time these are quick and easy but still have a little Christmas sparkle! The sparkle is much better in person! Choose some Nestie Shapes for your base card... easy enough! Grab the dove die and the ornament die and some pretty paper, easy peasy!
Create your folding tag by scoring the back panel of the nestie slightly below the top and gluing the two pieces together above the score line. The fold acts like a hinge.
Here are the insides of the two tags. I added sentiments using Memento's Grey Flannel ink. The Blue pattern paper is from Bo Bunny's Woodland Winter Collection.
I added the sentiment inside It's that time of Year again! This could work for holidays, birthdays and anniversaries.
Love this fun Happy Christmas sentiment!
Here's the how to:
Die cut out of a heavy weight paper. I prefer Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110#. Use a Viva Glitter Liner Pen (Silver is what I used) to literally add a big glob or two and then just smear it around the die cut. You want to make sure all portions are covered. It will dry with a little gloss finish, so if a spot is not covered it will stand out as dull. Once coated, put it on a clean piece of paper to dry. Dry time takes about 90 seconds.
Here it is dried. The glitter is not overwhelming. Also the glitter is very small so it does not stick out or rub off. Stickles can be a little too chunky to use for this.
I actually cut 3 ornament dies and then glued them together, with the sparkly on top. I wanted a little extra dimension. My favorite wet glue is by far Ultimate Glue to do this. Wet glue gives you a little wiggle time to line everything up cleanly. I apply it to the small areas using a toothpick.
