Tea Bag Fold Christmas Tree Tag
This tag was made for the Mod Squad Challenge – Tag Time – where we are to make a Christmas tag. (Sadly, this site is no longer active.)
And it is also being entered in the Perfectly Rustics Challenge No. 36 – Embossing – where we are to use wet or dry embossing on our project. (http://perfectlyrustics.com/2014/11/17/prdc-36-embossing/)
It is also being entered in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – We’re Seeing Stars – where we are to include a star on our project. (http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesdaychallenge/simon-says-were-seeing-stars/)
For this tag, I created a Christmas Tree using the tea bag folding technique. Click HERE to see how it is done. The paper used to make the tree was Pine Green Plaid by Paper Pizazz. The trunk was made with a scrap of Gina K Christmas Pine card stock and embossed with the Tim Holtz Alterations wood grained embossing folder. The polka dotted card stock behind the tree is the back of Basic Grey’s Grape Vine from the Plumeria collection. The large tag itself was cut from Gina K Christmas Pine card stock using the Tim Holtz alterations Moves & Shapers Bigz Die – Tags and Bookplates and embossed with the Sizzix (Stampin’ Up) Stripes embossing folder, although it’s hard to see that it is embossed in the photo. The greeting is stamped from a portion of the sentiment stamp from the Gina K Designs “A Gift For You” duo stamp set (retired?). (The whole sentiment didn’t fit on my mini tag.) The greeting was stamped with versamark and gina k Christmas pine embossing powder. The mini tag that it is mounted on is cut from a Heartfelt Creations die from a set called Decorative Flower Pot (HCD 732). The silver star charm was colored with Copic Marker E49 to make it match the rusty pin better. It was pinned to the ribbon along with the mini tag. The back is covered with a white panel which covers the ribbon and provides a place to write the “to” and “from” information for this gift tag.
Here is the tag on a card base. For the red panel, I used Gina K Cherry Red card stock and embossed it with the Cuttlebug D’Vine Swirls embossing folder. The card base is more of the Basic Grey paper used on the tag.
Thanks for checking out my project!
