Photo Embroidery Hoop! | Morgan Langley December 19, 2017 07:00

Hey crafty friends! Today I am showing a project that is perfect if you need a thoughtful handmade gift to give for Christmas! I used the "Snowflakes 2" and "Holiday Tags" cut files! 
            
To start I got my embroidery hoop ($.97), fabric ($1), elastic ($1), and felt sheets ($.23) at Walmart. Then I opened and loosened my hoop, laid the elastic across where I wanted it and then placed the fabric on. I closed my hoop and pulled the fabric and elastic tight. Then, print your pictures!
These felt flowers are my favorite part and they are super easy to make! First start with the middle part of the flower cutting a strip and then cutting strips all the way down. 
Then fold it into a circle and add some hot glue. Then add your petals! Depending on how large you want your flower is how long to make the middle of the flower and how big you cut your petals! 
Then add layers of petals to make it look more full! 
For the leaves I cut the shape and then add some hot glue to the tip and fold it. 
I also add little felt roll ups, (buds maybe?) to add texture. You just cut a strip that tapers a little and then roll and glue! 
I cut my snowflakes from white and blue card stock and they really helped to fill in the extra space tucking then between the elastic and under the photos. 
I added the joy tag layered with a patterned paper circle and a felt circle connected with bakers twine. I also tied a red bow to the top of my hoop and glued a button where the elastic pieces met. I added pom pom ribbon along the hoop for added fun! 
Thank you for stopping by today! There are so many ways to use these beautiful cut files and so many projects to create with these felt flowers! Merry Christmas and happy crafting! Follow me on instagram @morewithmorganl and follow Just Nick @justnickstudio

This cut file was SO fun to use! I cut the tags different sizes using a mix of kraft, white, and patterned card stock. Then I backed the cut outs with another scrap of paper and was ready to add some stitching accents! 

On some of the tags I used a ruler to mark straight, different sized lines with a pencil and then stitched them, some I stitched around the image, others I stitched snowflakes, and a couple I did some french knot stitches! 

I put thread or bakers twine through the hole of each tag and put adhesive so they would stay in position on my layout! 

For my background I just sewed on some scraps of Christmas paper with my sewing machine using a mix of white and red threads. I added my photo and some wood snowflakes and Christmas trees and then the layout was complete! 

Thank you for stopping by and make sure to get this file (HOLIDAY TAGS 2) today FREE with the code TAGFREE at checkout! Come back tomorrow for the 14th Day of giveaways!

Hi everyone.   I created some fun tags using the Holiday Tags file Nicole offered during the 12 days of freebies earlier this month.

I mixed and matched and trimmed and supersized to make each tag my own.  I can't wait to adorn my gifts with these custom tags.

 I layered them all with a mix of patterned paper and cardstock and I even stitched some.

12 Days of Giveways - Day 12! | Holiday Tags | Michelle Whorwood December 12, 2016 07:00 12 Comments

Hi everyone, 

Welcome to the 12th day of Christmas on the Just Nick blog.  Today, I am showcasing the fun Holiday Tags cut file.

I knew that I wanted to make the holiday tags quite big and I liked the idea of having large 'Baubles' made out of the round tags on my layout to match the 3 photos of my kids.  The word JOY is featured in my Christmas photo shoot this year which highlights the Joy in the holiday tag as well. 

I quite like adding some extra embellishments on my page which mirror the cut outs in the cut file - so extra christmas trees and stars and I also used the small cut out of the tree on my layout as well. 

I decided to cut out the holiday tags in white to tie the cut file with with the JOY in  my photos and I love the crisp white on white look as well.  I then added colour by adding patterned paper under the negative space in the cut file and also with embellishments on my page.
