Here’s my first *cough* Christmas make for 2018 (that C word really really hurt to say so early in the year ha!). Each year I try and make something a little bit extra special to embellish my Christmas gifts with, and when I saw the new Shaker Maker Pennant Die set from Whimsy stamps well, I just had to use them for my gift tags.
Love, love, love how these turned out – pink, pretty and shabby and so non-traditional.
I made the little mini poinsettias by using some watercolour paper, a touch of ink and my Lily Flower die set. Once I had inked up the petals I spritzed them with water, scrunched them up and allowed them to dry. Once dry I gently opened them up and moulded them into shape on the back of the petals using a large ball tool on a foam pad.
I die cut some holly leaves from the Christmas Branches die set and sentiments from the Wonderland Word die set and Peaceful Words die set with gold glitter card and added sentiments from the Holiday Mini Sentiments stamp set
I filled the shakers with tiny no-hole pearls and a mix of rose gold, ab and clear sequins.
