12 Tags of Christmas; #1


I'm brand new to the concept of Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas.  And I thought it would be fun to make them.  I flying off to Vancouver this weekend so I won't be working on Day 3 and 4.  But I will make make some when I get home.

OK so the idea is to use what you have and get inspired.  That's pretty much how I craft so this works for me.  I did get together with my 2 VERY talented GF's and we pooled our resources.  YES, one of my friends JUST picked up the pinecone die cut!  LUCKY!!!!

I don't have a die that cuts a sentiment.  So we cut "SNOWY" at 2" from Winter Woodland cart and glittered! I added thick Hemp Twine at the top and added a jingle bell attached with a paper clip.  Cool...

Here's my full tag inspired by Tim's. It's not about having all the stuff he used.  However, it is about using what you have and trying his techniques.  And that I did!

For the bottom I hand cut holy leaves and hot glued red jingles for berries.  What a POP!


So this is my take on Tim's Tag, #1 of the 12 Tags of Christmas.  How'd I do?  It's my first official Tim Tag!
