OK, I admit it. I am kind of getting excited about the arrival of summer and of Christmas. I always struggle at this time of year because both my daughters have birthdays about now. I like to concentrate on them first before I starting doing Christmas stuff.
This year I am feeling prepared for the second birthday this weekend and so last week I made our Christmas gift tags. I am really pleased with how they have turned out.
I cut the ornament shape using my Silhouette Cameo, then stamped the 'To and From' on the back. Using Copic friendly cardstock I stamped lots of little Christmas robins. I coloured these using my Copics and Spectrum Noir pens. I added a touch of Clear Wink of Stella to all the areas coloured red.
I punched each Christmas Robin out using a 1 1/4" circle punch. Then inked the edges with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink. I adhered these circles to the front of my ornaments and lastly added some glittered thread to each ornament.
Now all I need are sine gifts and a tree to put them under. Roll on Christmas Season. But, first lets enjoy thanksgiving.
