The day is getting closer and this year I’m trying to get the prep done a little earlier. I don’t want to leave everything till last minute like I usually do.
I’ve made some gift tags with an owl die I had free with a magazine. I thought they would make cute reindeer faces.
All of the shapes were cut out with dies and stuck down with PVA glue. The antlers were cut with a snowflake die chopped into three parts.
The base shape is spellbinders labels#4 gold ( labels#4 is one of my favourite shapes) in silver mirri card. Most of the backgrounds were paper made to test different colours and embossing powders, some silver, clear and white all with various blue inks blended on them. I used part of it in the village scene from the previous post. When the paper ran out I used a piece of wrapping paper.
This is what the paper on the tags looked like before I covered them up. This one is clear embossing powder on white card blended with blue ink.
I used cotton yarn instead of ribbon for the ties because I didn’t want to cover the words up then threaded small paper beads and tied knots onto the ends to stop them pulling through.
So they kind of look like reindeer right? Maybe if you squint and look at them sideways? I may make others I’ll have to see how many more I need, or maybe i’ll leave some plain like this for the more serous members of the family but really who doesn’t love reindeer?
Anyway thanks for stopping by and getting this far. Till next time, have fun x
