25 Days of Christmas Tags With Paper Sweeties

Excited to be joining in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags hosted by Tracey McNeely along with my teamies from Paper Sweeties!  Here's my tag for today!


Have you seen the new stitched tag die over at PaperSweeties?  It's called For You and it's pretty perfect!  And I love using it along with some of the other tag dies that are a bit smaller, like this tree from the Stitched Tags #2 Sweet Cuts set.


I used the star and heart dies from the Be Happy Sweet Cuts set too!  I created a faux shaker by cutting two trees from the Stitched Tags #2 set and diecut the heart from the front piece and then used some foam tape to attach them together to give the heart well some dimension.   I didn't add any window sheet to the shaker part... instead I just squirted a little liquid glass in the opening and dumped some beads and a sequin in it... then I just punched a star shaped hole in the star die cut from glitter paper using a punch I had in my stash and attached it to the baker's twine at the top.


I had this sentiment from the Santa Claus stamp set already embossed in white on this banner cut using the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts sitting around on my desk!  Yup... for almost a year it's been sitting there waiting... not perfect for whatever project I was working on then, but perfect for this one!  And of course I finished it off with some awesome Paper Sweeties Sequins in Strawberry!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to check out all of the Paper Sweeties projects revealed today!  You can reach them all from the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event for today on Tracey McNeely's In My Creative Opinion Blog!  You can then go to the main link up post and check out the rules and play along!  One important detail is you should use one of the tags created by any of the DT members from any of the days of the event and when you post, mention the project that inspired you as well as the day of the event it was posted!  There are lots of prizes from some awesome sponsors and lots of fun to be had!  Hope to see you there!

Truly wonderful tag! I especially like how you created the "faux" shaker by using the liquid glass and dropping the beads in. Good idea (and one I'm going to "borrow.") :) Thank you for sharing your pretty work and the helpful trick. :)
