Oh my, when I got started on making tags I couldn’t stop. After The Glitterlicious Tags (with tutorial) I made a few other ones, and I thought I’d share how I made those too! How about a stenciled snowman with a smile on his face?
I made a couple of tags that looks like the tags we think of when we say Tag… At least I do, though I now also think about online tagging with value words, but that is a totally different subject. These were created using a A4 cardboard and another front paper, this time not a text book page but a brown scrapbook paper with dots. I glued the scrapbook paper to the cardboard using Acrylic Gel Medium as glue and then cut them down to different sizes.
I cut off two of the corners with my scissors and voilŠ – they look like shipping tags! Not very Christmassy you might say, and I agree. I was thinking I would use these as Birthday Gift Tags later, but then I got another idea as I was sitting there…
I wasn’t creating a stencil for a snowman but making round shapes with my round shape punch. Then I thought I could use that round punched out shape as a stencil… and as I had the gesso out… I filled it with white and wow – it’s a snowball. I wonder what will happen if I do another snowball just below the first one?
What if I take my favorite drawing pen, Pigma Graphic size 1, and draw him a face and some stick arms? And perhaps a black hat and a carrot nose? I think that will make him smile, yes indeed, his stone lips is smiling to me! And with some new deco tape these tags are finished!
I need to go out and buy more gifts for my family because I made way way too many gift tags for the things I have bought so far! I had a lot of fun playing with this. I hope this will be a new tradition for me, and I hope you enjoyed tagging along too!?
I’m putting the leftover gift tags in a little plastic box that my lip gloss came in, kind of cute huh? I’m hoping I will find the right gifts to give before the 24th is here! In Sweden we exchange gifts on the evening of the 24th just after we have eaten more food than we do during the entire year. Ho, ho, ho, I can’t wait.
