Winter Tag

Here’s a fun tag that can be used on gifts or doorknobs for the Christmas season or for fun during the winter months. 

The tag measures 3 ½ x 5 1/2”.  From the corner make a mark 1” down on each side and ¾” across the top.  Cut from mark to mark to form a tag shape.   

For this project a heavy plastic bag from a scrapbooking chain store was used.  Cut the plastic to have two layers that opens like a book, ink up one side with Ranger Distress Ink – Broken China, sprits with water, lay the tag in the ink cover with the second piece of plastic and press down.

The navy snowflakes are sponged on the card; punches and die cuts were used to make a stencil.

The tree is a Sizzix die which was decorated with 3D paint and the flakes were added while the paint was wet. 

Flower soft was used for the hat.  This is popped up with double layers of thick carpet tape.  This works well when you want different levels.

Prismacolor pencils were used to color the image.  Flower soft for the hat.  It was cut out with scissors and craft knife.  It’s popped up with foam tape.

The white snowflakes are attached with glue or foam tape, the stars are attached to the flake with Diamond Glaze due to a plastic coating on the cardstock.

The twill tape is colored with a sponge and distress ink.
