The first one I made for my sister-in-law who was attending a no wrap wedding shower. She wanted to cover her gift in clear cello wrap since it consisted of multiple items, and a card just wasn't going to do the trick. I had just gotten a new Julie Nutting doll stamp, and it was perfect for a gift tag.
I cut the tag on my Cricut using the Bags, Boxes and Tags cartridge. Then I used Tim Holtz distress inks to color the background, and stamped some flourishes on. For the Bride's dress I used Diamond Stickles on the top and her headband, added some flowers, and done. This was really easy, fun to do, and looked great on the gift.
Since I got into Mixed Media this year I purchased a Tim Holtz configuration book. It sat on a shelf for months. I would look at it and cringe thinking, "What am I going to do with this?" While organizing my room I found pictures from a family vacation we had taken at the Jersey Shore. It took me a while to complete, but it was worth the time and effort.
This is the front
Till next time…..
