Whimsy Inspiration

Good morning to all of you.  My blogging buddy and teammate Maria Therese has me hooked on making Christmas tags to attach to my packages this year.  I have made a few with colored images but then decided to make some using Whimsy's sentiments.  These were so easy to make and took very little time.  I think they'll really dress up the packages this year.


I used Christmas SentimentsSeason's Greetings Sentiments, and Warm Winter Wishes Sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs over at Whimsy Stamps.



After I printed off my digi sentiments I cut them out with Nestabilities.  Using Bazzill cardstock, I cut out the matting to place behind my sentiment and then adhered both of these to a pretty doily.



I cut an even larger Nestabilities circle from Bazzill and adhered it behind the doily.  This made the tag sturdier and this is where I will write the recipient's name.



I punched a whole at the top and added some ribbon so I can tie on the tag.  On the front of the tag, I used a glue pen all around the edges of the sentiments and added Glamour Dust.  Then I decorated them with various punches, flowers, and pearls. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!
