Tims Tags ... Day 4 and a Santa Box

I know if you have been following you thought that I dropped off yesterday ... A bunch of us were at a crop all day Sat. and I came right home and went to bed . I was exhausted since I have only been sleeping a little . So when I got up in the morning I started trying to make my tag and balck it was awful ... the more I worked on it the worse it got ... so I decided that I needed more craft supplies to get this job done .... Off to Micheal's I went ...
 
 Stamps:Baby its cold outside
I vow that until after Christmas .... I will not walk through the sliding doors of Micheals or Joannes "it was nuts" ! There were a few things bought but nothing I used on my project lol . I think my mojo was there because when I came back I had the idea for
 my tag.


So every year at this crop that we go to we have a few contests ... one of them is a tag contest and I have one before . I can be competitive and I was going to the crop with a show stopper . Miss Patti beat me by two votes . Her tag was cute ... I will admit it ...but next year I am going to show up with a 3-d version of its a small world . I decided to try and make her tag and add a few tweaks of my own .

Santa Box

Supplies Needed : Red Heavy Cardstock 12 X12 
White Cardstock , Black Velvet Cardstock 
Spellbinders Die Wonky Rectangles 
White ribbon


1. Trim your Red Cardstock to 12 X11
2. Align your 12 inch side to the top of the Scor-pal and score at
1/2 inch , 5 inch , 6 1/4 inch , 10 3/4 inch

3. Rotate your paper one quarter turn and Score at 1 1/4 inches and 9 3/4 inches .
4. You can see that I cut the areas where the box is going to fold ..

When doing 3-d project especially ones that are going to be holding stuff you really want to use a liquid adhesive . ScrapHappy glue works great for this because its a strong glue and it dries quick and clear . Fold your box and glue remember to leave the top open ...

5.The Buckle I used Spellbinders Wonky rectangles .


To get the smooth glittered look on the white paper I applied ScrapHappy Glue and let it dry completely . The glue should be completely dry and not leave any sticky on your fingers . Once dry I took some of our super super fine glitter and rubbed and buffed the buckle .

For the Belt I cut a piece of black velvet 1 1/2 inch and glued it on to the box .
The White button lapel is  1 1/2 x 4 inches .

6. For the beard I took a piece of One and only double sided adhesive tape and put it across the top and began curling ribbon. I am not sure of the name of the ribbon but its pretty cheap ... you use it on presents and you run your scissors up it and it curls up . I used about 12  Approx  8 inch pieces .

Hope you all have a great day ...

I love your tag no 4. It is so delicate. What a beautiful lace border you gave your snowman. And what a good idea to use pearls as snow!
