I’ve been so inspired by Tracey McNeely’s The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019! It’s been hard to focus on other Christmas tasks when there are so many ideas running around in my head, so I’m here with one more tag.
Day 16 brought in Waffle Flower as the sponsor. This one was a little bit of a no-brainer since I own the Waffle Flower die that was used to create this fun tag, but I kinda needed easy-peasy and my inspiration came from Rebecca Keppel. She used felt on her Waffle Flower Santa Tags die tag and also backed the felt with paper for easy writing, which I thought were wonderful choices! Check out her blog for her fun design!
I tweaked a couple of details, but essentially this die creates this specific design so there’s not a whole lot of space to get too original.
Here’s my take:
I used the Waffle Flower Santa Tags Die set. The red layer is red felt, the white is coconut velvet paper from s e i, I used a shiny black paper for the belt and pearlized cardstock in silver for the belt buckle and buttons. I decided to sandwich the ribbon between layers and I sewed the buttons on the front of this tag because hey, why not? Well, I realized later on that maybe I should have used red thread because I could see the white thread on the backside of this tag. Here’s a tag back without sewing:
I love how the felt looks through the letters from some MFT tag die sentiments!
These were so much fun! I can’t wait to make the rest of this set (I’m making sets of ten to give as gifts to family and friends.)
I hope you have lots of time and inspiration for getting crafty! Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
