Now I have to be honest here - I made this in response to this week's OLW challenge - make a tag. I took it to the craft fair and everyone assumed it was a book mark (and therefore wanted to pay $1 instead of 25 cents!) who was I to argue? I'm going to submit it to the challenge anyway.
Over a year ago I bought a packet of these tags from Joann's - they were on sale and I thought they would 'come in handy'. It took Jennifer's challenge to make that happen! They are a bit thin, so I stuck two together - still counts as one layer if you can't see the layer, right? This had the added advantage that I could colour this beautiful poinsettia from Memory Box the luscious shade of velvety red that it deserves. I didn't have a sentiment that was in the right style for the image AND fit in the space where I wanted to put it, so again I had to improvise - the Merry Christmas in the holy nights set was the right style but too long, a little bit of masking and I could stamp it in two lines in the space. Some crystal glaze for the centre of the flower (which I sprinkled with a little glitter - it is Christmas after all) and a ribbon and the tag (bookmark) was complete. I am giving several books this year - I think this will make the perfect tag for them.
A short post today - which makes up for all the long ones recently. Do pop by again soon.
