This week at CASEing the Catty, we’re scoping out all the gift tags in the Holiday Catalogue. There are loads in there so that should make it easy to choose one right? Well, not so in my case. There are so many cute tags to choose from and in the end I changed my mind several times before settling on the most unconventional one.
I was late to the party with the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set and Christmas Greetings thinlits but I kept seeing such lovely creations that I treated myself to the bundle recently. I love the samples for this bundle and I am quite a fan of the crafty/rustic star tag.
So I grabbed a nice stick and my trusty Gold Metallic Thread and went about creating my star structure. It was actually quite easy and I didn’t even secure my thread, just wrapped it enough times and in different directions to prevent it from unravelling.
I decided to recreate the sample so used vellum, Gold Foil, Gold Glitter ribbon and stars to embellish the star. Here’s my finished rustic star tag.
I just love how it turned out. So pretty!
Next I decided to change it up a little and create a similar tag in traditional Christmas colours.
OK, so I’m a massive fan of gold at Christmas but this project has got me thinking about a red and green Christmas this year. So gorgeous!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my tags. Want more inspiration? Make your way around all the CASEing the Catty blog hop participants, starting with Julia Quinn, or click here to see a full list of blog hoppers.
