Last Friday I had my Summer Mini Catalogue Launch and it was my last class for the year. I am a bit sad about that. I love meeting up with my lovely ladies, although I am looking forward to a little break. I just wanted to show you the fun project we did. Christmas is almost upon us (17 days to go apparently I was reminded of today – and I still have to hit the shops!). I thought it would be good to create some Christmas tags as I haven’t had a chance to get any done in classes so far. This is the little bag and tags. (sorry it is a bit hard to catch the bag without the glare).
To create this I cut a large scallop circle with the Big Shot and then embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. This was folded in half and 2 holes punched with the Crop-A-Dile to thread the Old Olive Satin Ribbon through. The backing to the bag is a piece of Old Olive Card measuring 10cmx16cm and attached inside the Scallop Circle topper with Sticky Strip. You can then attach a cellophane bag onto the card piece with sticky strip. The ‘Joy at Christmas’ label is punched from Perfect Punches in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. A rhinestone is added to the label although you can’t see that too clearly.
Here is a close up of the tags. At the launch they made 4 of each.
For both of them I punched out a 6cm (2 3/8″) scallop circle in Cherry Cobbler. On the left is the tag from Stitched Stockings set stamped in Old Olive. A small bow from Old Olive Taffeta ribbon was added to the top (Yes, I know it was small I heard enough complaints the whole time about how hard it was to tie the bows – Sorry ladies!!!!)
On the right we used the new A la Carte stamp ‘Stylish Star’. It was embossed in silver on Whisper White card and punched out with the 1 3/8″ circle punch. A 1 3/4″ circle in Old Olive was punched out and they were both added to the Scallop Circle. I added a large Rhinestone in the centre. A hole was punched at the top and the new Cherry Cobbler Twine was tied on. I love that new Twine it is so soft. It comes in the Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and the White – so good!!! I haven’t shown the back on this one but we also punched out a circle with the 1 3/4″ in Whisper White and “to” and “from” from the set ‘Fabulous Phrases’ was stamped in Cherry Cobbler.
Hope your not getting too frantic with the Christmas chaos. I might even head out to the shops. I am so bad. I have never left it this late for Christmas shopping but life has been a little choatic lately!
Thanks for stopping by. Come visit again soon and don’t forget to say Hi and leave a comment when you stop by 🙂
