This tag is so clean and gorgeous!!! I love how its clear and how you stuck with just white and shimmer. How cool that you can use it as an ornament too! Very very pretty! Thanks for participating in the swap:)
Great tag! I love that you chose acetate for your tag, and it really does look great on the tree!
'Wonderful' is the perfect word for this, Christin!!!
I love the see-thru look & the stamping is impeccible. Ditto the snow & glitz!
I'll bet the Christmas decoration you did looks lovely with the lights showing thu'.
So cool!!! I really like this tag! It is really pretty and clever! Love the ribbon!!
Very cute. I like the way you finished the tag edge, it adds another bit of 'cold' to the tag. :)
Project - Snowflakes on acetate - January tag
posted 01/16/13 at 12:20 AM
Cut a 5” x 3”rectangle from acetate (I used a take-out container lid!). Cut corners off and punch a hole near top.
Use white Stazon to stamp a variety of snowflakes, a snowman and a sentiment on the acetate. If you make a mistake, or the impression doesn’t come out well, you can use stamp cleaner on a small sponge to erase and start again. I did this on a couple of the snowflakes.
Use a small make-up sponge to dab white Stazon beneath the snowman, as snow on the ground.
Carefully pipe Glossy Accents around the edge of the tag (the fine nib of the bottle is perfect for this), then sprinkle generously with fine silver glitter. After leaving to dry overnight, shake the excess off (if you do it on a clean piece of paper you can easily return the excess glitter to the jar) and brush away any that isn’t stuck down.
I used some children’s stickers that had a sparkly silver backing (the sticky bit) for the hole reinforcement. I punched it with two different sized hole punches – one the same size as the hole in the tag and the other slightly bigger. You could also trim it with the Glossy Accents and glitter, like the edge of the tag, or just leave it clear (reinforcement isn’t really necessary with acetate).
Tie a few white ribbons through the hole.
