Let's get started with this gift tag, my take on a 'simple' Tim-spired project.
I die cut the deer into the kraft tag, then I stamped onto the tag, and I also mounted it onto a piece of patterned paper covered with Tim's frosted film. I used my beloved sticky embossing powder to add some glittery bursts around the tag, and topped it with some tinsel (love that stuff!) as well as a tiny tag stamped with my favorite blueprint stamp.
chit chat words add my finishing touches, and before you can say pass the candy canes I had completed my tag!
Warmed up and thinking of clever ways to present a gift card (or just make a card) I decided to alter a Starbucks drink holder.
These are such fun to make - and you can mix it up a variety of ways! For this one, I made one cut, and punched two holes on the opposite side. Then I added a piece of paper (cut to be just smaller than the cardboard sleeve itself) and tied it in with more of that awesome tinsel. Thanks to the holiday decorations already on the outside, I just added a die cut bird and metal flower colored with alcohol ink to complete my look.
Well, almost complete it! I finished things off with some glossy accents on the word rekindle, and some distress stickles around the edge - no project of mine is complete without that! Now I can make a pocket inside for a gift card, make this into a very tiny mini album, or treat it like a card.
Speaking of cards, I have a card featuring my favorite stamps this season - the mini blueprints.
