Gift Tag Time!


My daughter and I LOVE to have
Christmas craft days!

We turn the house into an artists dream...
ONE BIG STUDIO!
We have rubber stamps here~
mounds of paper scraps there~
punches n' paints~
ephemera and photographs~
fabric n' buttons...
GLITTER!!!!
a nightmare for anyone else who lives here!


These cute mini file folders will be
the perfect size for wallet portraits...


Double sided papers are sweet for these...


Last December I made buttons & tags
with tissue papers...
This is a different look...


Thin coat works best...
Try not to move it around once it is in place
tissue paper becomes very weak...


I put a solid tissue layer on the back...
Once it dries I will write a Christmas message
with a fine tip black marker.


Held to the light...


This tag is going on an antique glass trivet.
They hang their colorful trivets against windows...
The light flows through them so beautifully.

Hope you're having time for some holiday fun!

Hey Michelle! I used to make those cut-outs look like stained glass to hang in the window! Fun, isn't it!
Nothing like making a fun mess! Bet your kitties and dogs are all glittered up for Christmas!

Where do you find those adorable mini file folders? Are they from your Sissix machine? They think of everything!

Hugzzzz! Diane

great project! I have not carved out nearly enough creative time for myself this year, so it's fun to see what you're up to.
Merry Christmas to you and your family! ♥
