O Holy Night Tag

Here's one last tag for the the holidays. With the exception of the drying time for the enamel accents, this was a very quick tag to put together. Perfect for a last minute gift idea or to add a little something extra to a gift package.

Start by gathering all necessary supplies. Projects always go together much easier when I don't have to hunt for supplies.

Cut cardstock to 6 1/4x3 1/8 in and patterned paper to 5x3 1/8 in.

Round top corners of the cardstock using a corner punch. Using the same punch, but with removing the cutting guard, punch the scalloped border across the bottom.

Color the patterned paper using a mister filled with distress ink reinker, perfect pearls, and water.

Attach patterned paper to cardstock using a sewing machine. If you don't have a sewing machine, this step can be completed by hand stitching.

The chipboard letters were the perfect size but the wrong color for this project. I also wanted a bit of dimension and not just a flat color. To achieve this, add a thin coat of white enamel accents to the chipboard letters. Set aside to dry.

Stamp image and color with watercolor pencils blended with an aquapen. Cut out image.

Apply rub-on and border sticker. Attach both the angel and bird using pop dots. Using white ink pen, make small dots across both the top and bottom edges of the tag.

Attach crystals to mimic holly berries. Finish tag by adhering the letters and adding ribbon.

I hope you've been inspired today!
