Paper Scraps and Bottle Caps

Hi Everyone I hope you are enjoying your Sunday. We have another day of storms ahead, with thunder rumbling overhead as I type this. Yesterday we were lucky enough to be spared the severe storms that lashed around us both to the north and south, and I spent the afternoon watching a live stream from a Storm Chaser who was watching a Super Cell Storm Form over the Darling Downs in South East Queensland. Scary stuff indeed.

Anyway today I have a Christmas Tag to share with you all, created using up some of my paper scraps and a bottle cap. I am using some other goodies you can buy at Altered Pages also for this project.



I have been working on a number of projects for Christmas using the Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium Papers from Altered Pages and had some bits of these delightful papers left over so I thought I would make some tags. I started by taking a Manilla Tag and using this as a template cut out the same shape from a piece of the Blue Snowflake Paper. To this I have stamped and embossed some white snowflakes and added a small clear rhinestone to the center of each snowflake. I then inked the edges with some Paris Trunk Walnut Ink and adhered to the Manilla Tag. For the center of my tag I have layered some Gold Metallic Ribbon and Natural Colour Netting under a scrap of the Toy Paper.

To coordinate and add another touch of Christmas I have punched out with a 1" Circle Punch Santa's face from one of the images from the Santa Santa Santa AP-1111 Collage Sheet and adhered him into the center of a flattened Bottle cap using some Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer to both adhere and seal the image into the center

Once dry I then added some gold glitter glue to the outer rim of the bottle cap so that it matched my metallic ribbon which I used as a tie for this tag also. And there you have it a Christmas Tag using Paper Scraps and Bottle Caps.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a great weekend!
