Festive tags December 30, 2016 07:00
Hello everyone!!! I can't believe 2017 is just around the corner!!!
My friends and I (together with our families) will be "giving thanks" saying goodbye to 2016 and welcoming 2017 but not the usual celebration we all know and do. I'm in Saudi Arabia and it's not allowed to blatantly celebrate anything not Islam-related. So, in our own ways, we'll celebrate the New year (it's a secret so shhhh lol!). Exchanging gifts is done on or before Christmas but we're going to do that on January, several days after New Year. And being the crafty person that I am, of course I made my own gift tags and used craft papers and scrapbook stuff to wrap and decorate our gifts :D These are supposed to be 3 pieces but the 3rd gift is too big so I didn't include it anymore.
I used the Pineneedle Bough, Holiday Sentiments 2 and Festive Wreath cut files to decorate the tags. I didn't write the names yet because they will see these on my Facebook wall and might figure out, better be safe than take away the element of surprise.
I paired the Pineneedle bough and the word "Peace" to make the first tag
I cut several pieces so I can layer them up like you see in the image. I colored the bough with Promarkers and the word "peace" with gold paint marker. I embossed both. Clear embossing powder on the bough and gold embossing powder on the word "peace".
Basically did the same thing with the second tag. But instead of markers, I used green ink pad to color the wreath. I just dabbed the wreath itself onto the pad. I also embossed both.
I used Graphic 45 stuff to wrap and decorate these gifts. I hope the recipients will like them, both the content and the creative gift wrapping haha!
Thanks for dropping by and may you have a blessed and Happy New Year! Keep safe!
