I'd like to enter this project into the Lawnscaping Challenge #119: tag it!
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: holly Jolly Stamping (Christmas Themed project)
I've created these Tic Tac gift tags, double tags, gift bag...I dunno, you choose...lol
I've cased a creation from the lovely Sam Donald, over at Pootles.co.uk, but adapted it to my supplies.
Last week I made three with some Christmas patterned paper, to hand out at various occasions, one to a friend who drove us to a Christmas fair, one to my mother with her Christmas card and one I still have to give away and, well you can see it in the photos.
But now for the Lawnscaping challenge I made a new one, form white cardstock and stamped it all over with the Winter Penguin stampset, the black is Memento tuxedo black and the blue is broken china from Distress inks.
I coloured the image with alcohol markers (Spectrum Noir and Copic)
I so wish I had some of the new Lawn Fawn, but at my Dutch online stores they´re still in back order and or are sold out and or waiting fof them too :-( so forgive me.
I started my project with a strip of paper 2 inches wide and 8 1/4" inches long.
I scored the paper at 3 3/4" from either side.
then snipped the edges to make it tag shaped ( I have no tag shaped dies) and I used my punch for the hole in the amiddle.
then threaded through some red and blue ribbon and tied it in a knot.
the Tic Tac is held in place with some tape runner.
It's so easy to make these and, I'll make more as soon as I get more Tic Tacs, maybe as birthday treats, for the people attending the creative group I volunteer for,
it looks the part and isn't too expensive, and everyone needs a Tic Tac once in a while, right? ;-) I might even use them as proper tags n gifts..ha there's an idea! will keep the back white and put names on it...should have thought about that earlier haha...
for the one with patterened paper I measured the paper and dived my three it's 1 7/8" and still fits, the 2"is for the tag topper punch Sam used I don't have, you can use corner punches too and punch four times.
