Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Have you had the chance to check out the Graphic 45 Christmas Past paper? It's gorgeous. And we love it. It really succeeds at achieving the particular look you may be searching for in a Christmas card or tag.

Take a gander at these winners done by Katie Rasmussen.

Don't you just adore these? Here's the supplies and instructions for the last tag with the snowflake on it.

Spellbinders Copper Premium Foil
Spellbinders Create a Flake #1
Embossing machine
Bazzill Black rick rack
Bazzill Cream tulle
Melissa Francis Mika Flakes
Making Memories vellum

• Cut a rectangle 3 1/4" x 2 1/4"; use the flat edge of the Corner Chomper on the corners.
• Cut another rectangle to 1 1/4" x 2 1/4."
• Adhere the second rectangle 3/4" from the bottom of the tag.
• Adhere black rick rack on the edges of the rectangle with Fabri-Tac
• Tie cream tulle around the tag above the rectangle, trim the edges into a zig zag pattern.
• Make snowflakes out of copper foil and cream vellum—one of each material—using the Create a Flake dies and your embossing machine. Adhere these two snowflakes onto the knot of the tulle bow. Put Zip Dry on the top snowflake and adhere mica flakes. When dry, place Bazzill jewels to the center of the snowflake.
• Using your Crop-a-Dile, punch a hole at the top of the tag and tie tulle and rick rack through it.

And you've got yourself a dainty little snowflake tag that will compliment any gift!

Happy crafting!
