I hope you are all enjoying the current challenge theme ? Interactive is such a fun theme and I cannot wait to see all your creations for the challenge.
One of the things I really want to do this holiday season (I know its summer but I like to plan ahead) is spend more time with gift wrapping, especially as we don’t have that many gifts to send it would be nice to make them more personal.
So I decided to give making shaker tags ago. I have used the Hero Arts Infinity Tags along with their Coffee Cup Stamp & Die set. All supplies are listed and linked below.
I started out die cutting two tags from Kraft Card and one from fun foam. I then used the main cup die on the fun foam and just one of the tags.
I then took the die for the coffee cup foam and die cut that from some white card. For this I wanted some dimension and also some shimmer so I roughly applied some Nuvo Glimmer paste and set it aside to dry whilst I created the rest of the tag.
The stamp set has To & From stamps so I stamped these on the back of the tag.
When die cutting fun foam it tends to stretch so I always trim it down a bit so it isn’t over hanging.
I then added some Acetate over the window and adhered the fun foam.
I wanted this to be quite full so I used various different sequins and seed beads and filled the shaker well up before adhering the back of the tag.
I decided something was missing at this point so I stamp another sentiment from the set using Distress Oxide.
Once my “foam” was dry I adhered this and added some ribbon.
I have to say I really enjoyed making this, and it was quick and easy too and will definitely be something I will be making more of for the holiday season.
Thank you for stopping by.
