Hi there! Hope your holiday preparations are going well. December always seems to sneak up on me and I find some of my ideas falling by the wayside as time runs short. Does that happen to you? However, one of the things I love to make are gift tags. They don't take a lot of time to create, but can have a big impact. Add a special tag to a plainly wrapped gift or gift bag and suddenly you have something extra festive.
These are some of the foiled tags I created for Therm O Web to use in magazine ads. The photo above was taken by the talented Joe Kay. I've been a big fan of his work ever since seeing his images in Crafts 'n things (now Craft Ideas) magazine. Not only are his photos great, but he has a real talent for staging things that makes them shine.
Using an electronic die cutter makes these tags easy to mass produce.
After adding a base layer of silver foil using a laminator, I added a second layer which was "painted" on using a special adhesive. The effect is much prettier in real life than my photos show.
Once dry, simply press on the second foil color to add the "paint".
You can read the full post, including a supply list for all the cut files used, over on the Therm O Web blog. They are also having a fantastic giveaway that you won't want to miss.
