Welcome to the weekend friends! I know it is only nearing the end of September, but it is not to early to think about Christmas!
I have started with a traditional shape for my tag using the French Kiss striped designer paper. The stripes remind me of Christmas. There is nothing like burlap at Christmas too, it reminds me of the days gone by when packages where wrapped in kraft paper and tied with burlap twine...luv!
I cut out the star base using Joyeux Noel polka dotted paper another favorite of mine all the time, not just Christmas! I have stained the edges to make it a little more bolder. During the sponging a small piece of my star came off, it gives it the shabby look I luv..*grin*
I sponged also around the tag shape to also give it a more bold look. It is amazing how adding a little ink to the edges of your element makes it pop!
I like to lay my elements out on my work table and position and reposition, this is such a fun part of the creating process!
Here I have added the gorgeous Giant Rhinestones to the center of my stars; nothing like burlap and bling...totally luv! I have placed the sentiment tag on my table looking for the perfect placement...teehehe.
Here is the finished tag, I added a tiny clip, the seam binding ribbon and burlap string. All I need now is the perfect Christmas gift. There you have it a step x step Christmas tag, go ahead and make one today, it's really not to early!
