25 Days of Christmas Tags - Avery Elle
Hey there! I'm representing Avery Elle today with this shaker gift tag for the 25 Day of Christmas Tags - month long event organised by Tracey McNeely and her blog found HERE.
To create my shaker tag I die cut the Classic Flag die from this set 3 times. Twice in light grey cardstock and once more from white cardstock. I stencil ink blended a background of clouds on the white die cut and adhered it to one of the grey ones to form the back of the tag. I set this to one side.
Next, I cut a window out of the remaining grey die cut using the Large Pierced Scallops Die set. I backed the opening with a piece of acetate and built a shaker until around the window with dimensional foam tape. I filled the shaker portion with a selection of 'snowy' sequins that I had then adhered the back to the front sealing the contents in.
I used a 1/8 inch hole punch to make the opening for my baker's twine and threaded through a double strand.
I die cut the larger of the two sentiment strips in the Classic Flags die set and I stamped the sentiment from Snow Fun with Versamark Ink then heat embossed in red.
Taking centre stage are some cuties also from the Snow Fun stamp set. These were stamped with Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil on to Bristol Smooth cardstock then watercolour painted using Kuretake Zigs in Wine Red, Haze Blue, Light Pink and Bright Yellow. Also a Tombow ABT was used in shade 969. Some points were highlighted with a white gel pen then all images were die cut, backed with foam tape and applied to the top of the shaker window and the sentiment strip was applied underneath them to ground them.
A few Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were adhered to the outside for a final twinkle.
Thank you for stopping by to read how to make this tag today and I hope you are enjoying all the gift tag inspiration this event is bringing.
Until the next time then, happy crafting!
