12 Tags of Christmas Week #2

Good Day everyone. Today I want to share I tag I made for the 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge going on at the Funkie Junkie.

I did Week #3 a while back. You can see that post here if you wish.

I am totally behind. She is already on Week #6. (big sigh).

Anyway, here is a picture of her Inspiration Tag
Funkie Junkie Tag Week #2  



Now, I do not have any of the supplies Linda used in making this awesome tag.  So I had to do a little creative thinking....ha, I try not to think to often...makes my head hurt :-)

Any way, here is a picture of my Tag
I love her Santa and her background. Since we know I do not have those materials the first thing I thought of was tin foil. Right from the kitchen. You read correctly. I took a jumbo manilla tag and used tin foil to "wrap" it.

I then used black ink to try and smudge the silver a bit. In some places it looked more blue. Of course that was before it dried.  (On a side note, if you ever decide to ink tin foil, don't. It took me 3 days to blot, and dry it.) However, I really do like the way it turned out.

I used a snowflake template I had found on the web, printed it on white cardstock paper and  then cut them out. I wanted more silver, but I refused to use more tin foil...hahaha. Then I remembered I had silver glitter and silver glitter glue.

I used the silver glitter glue first and then took a small paint brush to even it out some. I sprinkled the silver glitter on top while it was still wet. When the glitter was completely dry I took my Modge Podge and painted a thin layer on top of the glitter to help keep it from coming off on my fingers. (You just have to love Modge Podge)

I cut out a printed Santa and a printed tag looking ticket. I used silver ribbon and made a little bow with a silver button middle between the snowflakes.
I used part of a silver bead strand from the dollar store to frame around my Santa. I thought it looked pretty cool.

Thanks for letting me share my little tag with you. Hope you like it.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Weekend!!

Until Next Time, Happy Sales
