Tag 1 - Using Brads as accents on the tag. This white core tag was covered in Christmas Scrapbook paper, a coloured "Merry Christmas" rub on centred on the tag, and then a bit of colour was added by the round brads on the bottom and the Christmas tree brad on the top right. The colours of the brads was then co-ordinated in the Christmas ribbon used for the tie.
Tag 2 - with ribbons and stickers. This core tag was covered in two co-ordinating pieces of scrapbook paper, base layer was burgundy with a green layer on top. I glued the Christmas ribbon on before gluing the two background layers together. Then just finished it off with a couple of Christmas stickers - the Santa and the HoHoHo. It needed a little something at the top, so I used a holly flatback button on top of a glitter flower on top of a 1" punched circle of the background paper. Burgundy and white bakers twine was used for the tie.
Tag 3 - Button accents - this tag is so cute! It also shows the base core tag, which has been left bare. All that was needed on this tag, was the holly vine rub-on and then three little reindeer buttons added. Again bakers twine was used for the tie and the edge of the tag was stamped with red ink.
Tag 4 - using Victorian Vinaigrette's ... this tag needed a little something, and I wish I had used a cotton doily rather than a paper doily to give it some more depth ... maybe next time. Two little Victorian children were glued to the tag, one in front and the other behind the paper doily. Pearl rhinestones glued to the centre of the doily flowers and the flowers lightly coloured with pencil. Lastly a "sweet" rub-on was added. Chiffon ribbon ties to complete this tag. I also think I need to go back and ink the edges of this tag.
Tomorrow I will show you the tags I made using a new pack of tags which will be added to the online store - dimensional tags in primary colours. They have lovely shaded edges.
