PPA TAGS CHALLENGE - GIFT TAGS

PPA CHALLENGE - MAKE A GIFT TAG.  HERE IS MY ENTRY:


WOW!!  ONLY 8 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS - ARE YOU READY??  I JUST DO THE BEST WE CAN AND LET GO OF THE REST.  I AM INTO SIMPLIFYING MY LIFE AND REMOVING STRESS.  SO I AM FINE WITH WHERE I AM IN THE HOLIDAY PREPARATIONS AND TRYING TO ENJOY THE SEASON.

THIS WEEK I HAD A GIFT TAG CLASS AND WE DID SOME FUN TAGS.  I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU.
 This first tag above was so fun to make.  First we die cut some snowflakes with the BIG SHOT.  We placed it on the left side of the tag and sponged gold ink around it, then removed the snowflake.  Next we stamped some snowflakes on the tag with versamark ink and then heat embossed with a mixture of wild wasabi embossing powder and iridescent ice powder.  It was starting to look pretty good, but we were not finished yet.  Next we punched the round tag punch out of wild wasabi card stock and glued it on the top of the tag.  We punched a hole for the ribbon or string with our crop-a-dile.  We sponged some wild wasabi ink around the edge of the tag.

 To finish off this tag, we ran the northern frost strip die through our BIG SHOT with the silver glimmer paper to cut out some small snowflakes.  We glued one on the bottom left of the tag, but there is a hole in the middle of the die cut.  NO PROBLEM - we filled it with some galaxy fine glitter in a green color and VOILA - all finished.  All we added was early espresso 1/8" ribbon for the tie and we were DONE!!

 I got the idea for these cute tags above from Heather Summer's blog.  Hi Heather!!  I used the two tags DIE and my BIG SHOT with more mustard card stock.  Next we sponged around the edge of the tag with espresso ink.  We stamped the tall snowman on shimmer white card stock in basic black and fussy cut them out.  We also stamped the snowman onto the tag as well.  When cutting out the snowman from the white, you don't need his arms, but do use the very small circle punch for the two birds.  We colored parts of the snowman with the many marvelous markers.  We used crystal effects on his buttons, and used stamping dimensionals to pop up the snowman on the prestamped image on the tag.  We then added the punched birds.  We sewed on the ribbon through the tag with linen thread through the Christmas buttons.  LOVE IT.

Here is the chubby brother of the snowman above, from the same stamp set.  He is stamped on shimmer white card stock and surrounded with red glimmer paper die cut with the BIG SHOT and scallop oval frame die.  We used the galaxy fine glitter stacks for the scarf and some crystal effects for the buttons and the snowball in his hand.  One has bells sewn on his other hand like he is ringing the Christmas bells.  Again added ribbon and some with some linen thread also.  SO PRETTY WITH ALL THE BLING.

I REALLY LOVE THESE TAGS ABOVE.  I cut out the designer paper into the shape of a tag.  This piece of paper has glimmer dots already on it!!  Awesome.  I used the NOEL stamp and the designer tag punch to punch it out as well as the shadow behind it in wild wasabi.   Also sponged wild wasabi around the edge of the tag.  Used the punch on the top two corners to shape the strip of paper into more of a shape of a tag.  Used the Stars 2 die and my BIG SHOT with white cardstock.  We used the larged of these 3 stars and stamped the snowman offset on the star and embossed it with gold embossing powder.  Rubbed the edges of the star into versamark and gold embossing powder and heat embossed it again.

 Lastly, we punched out with the round tag punch for the top, used some metal hardware pieces and our crop-a-dile to punch the hole, then added either a button or a brad to hold it all together.  We used gold stretch cord for the string to hold it on the package.  We used the NEW cherry cobbler bling along his scarf, which  in the upcoming Ocassions Mini starting JAN 4th for ONLY $2.50.  LOVE THIS TAG.  WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT??


Final piece we made is this fun tag/convertible ornament.  On the white part when the tag is closed, you can stamp TO and the person's initial or name.  On the other side we decided we should put "this opens up to be an ornament for your tree" in case the recipient didn't know what it was.  When you open it up and push the button back down, you have a fun star ornament (Christmas designer paper).  Isn't it cute??!!  How great is a gift tag AND an ornament all in one??!!  At Hallmark last year they were selling similar tag/ornaments for $8.99!!

Merry Christmas to y'all.  May you find peace, hope and love this Christmas Season!!  Won't you please leave me a little comment to help me feel the love??!!
