Triangles and Wonky Trees

Sometimes you need little tags for your Christmas parcels don't you? As its triangle week at *The Craft Barn* I was having a poke through their website (all changed and super swanky now) and I spotted these little Tando Creative Wonky Trees, which are wonky triangles so fit the brief happily! If you have a lot of tags to make up then these are perfect for a 'production line'.

I took some plain white card and painted it with DecoArt Festive Red, which is a lovely metallic paint. When dry I punched the tags out using a large Woodware punch. Then I over stamped with Dylusions Christmas Backgrounds (stars) using Brilliance Moonlight White. The trees have been painted with Pebeo Green Yellow iridescent paint which has a lovely glow to it. The trunks have been painted with PaperArtsy Fresco Chocolate Pudding and had Glossy Accents applied. The stars at the top of the trees have been glittered. I also glittered around the edges of the tags. Green twine finished them off.  Easy Peasy!!!!!! :-D
If you pop over to *The Craft Barn Blog* you will see that it has undergone a big change.  Best thing is that most of our projects now have a FREE downloadable PDF of instructions if you fancy having  a go too!
Thank you for popping by my lovelies xxx

Tags are always things I make very last minute and are very basic with just tag shapes cut from my Cricut and then covered in wrapping paper to match the present's paper. Not great!
These on the other hand are fab, as are the other design team members' ones.
