Hi everyone, Mou here with some cheerful holiday tags.
I love the small surfaces of tags. Decking them up is fun. Use them as decoration or with gifts, put them on a card or scrapbook page, tags are mini pieces of art. With so many beautiful Holidays dies from Sizzix, creating cute tags is easy. Let me show you how I made these five tags.
Here are the steps:
Die cut tags and embellishment pieces using the Sizzix Big Shot Machine, accessories and listed dies. Die cut the ice skate twice.
Cut up a holiday themed paper into random pieces and cover the tags.
Stitch the tags here and there. Punch holes at the top where it got covered by the patterned papers. Ink the tags a bit with Barn Door Distress Ink pad and blending tool.
Cut cream cardstock into a 5.5" x 4.25" piece to fit inside the Cross Stitch embossing folder. Emboss the piece and ink it with Barn Door Distress Ink and blending tool.
Ink up all the other diecut pieces as well. Flick water on them with paint brush for the Distress inks to react. Add details to the inked die cut Mini Toy Soldier and Mini Cardinal with pens and color pencils. Lace the skates with thread. Cut the embossed Cross Stitch piece into strips to use as sentiments.
Arrange the die cuts and embossed pieces on the tags as shown. Attach some pieces with foam tape. Stitch with sewing machine as well as by hand to add details. Paint some dots on each tag with gold acrylic paint and outline them with white pen. Finally, thread each tag some mint and white baker's twine to finish.
Hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial and would create with Sizzix dies this Christmas. Thanks for stopping by!
