Fast and furious




Helllooo!  Its always a last minute dash to make gift tags for my Christmas parcels so they tend to be the 'fast and furious' kind! These are very simple to make.



Take a piece of white card and roughly cover it in acrylic paint. I used PaperArtsy Fresco in Ice Blue, Snowflake and Moonlight. This dries really quickly! Next I embossed snowflakes in white all over the top. I used Artemio Crystals which are separate on the sheet so load up a large acrylic block with lots of them to save time.


For my 6x6cm single fold tags I cut down two white DL cards that I had....a little wasteful but we are watching the time here. Using a Woodware punch I cut out 5cm squares and stuck them to the fronts of my gift tags using sticky foam. The pretty Tando trees have been embossed in Silver and glued on as shown.
