MFT November Creative Construction with Blueprints--Holiday Tags

Adding a handmade touch is a wonderful way to personalize your thoughtful gifts. 
 Join us this month as we look at holiday tags featuring Blueprints.

For my project, I created lip balm tags with an element from Blueprints 13.
I found a Holiday collection of lip balms and thankfully, the lip balm die fit
perfectly on the tag.

After die cutting the tag shape from watercolor card stock, I white embossed
small snowflakes on the tag, then ink distressed them two thirds of the way up
and spattered water on them. I used the slit die from Blueprints 30 and cut
slits on the top of the tag.

The lip balm pouches were assembled, the tags were finished off with a ribbon
 and a smaller tag that was stamped with a sentiment and tied to the tag.

  5. Such a fun project, Donna! I love how you created the ombre effect with your inks and the diagonal stripes on the lip balm is so festive!
