As I mentioned in a earlier post this week, I am in the throws of coming up with creative ideas for our next TV showing on Create and Craft channel. It is a show based around the Christmas theme and so I decided to once again try my hand at something that looks unusual but is in fact easy enough for everyone to do.
I have decided to use these tags as my backdrop to work on.
I found some lovely paper that I cut out to size to add as another layer of detail to the tags ..
I then found a old Christmas themed vintage image I love..
TIP - make it more personalised by using an old family picture . Do not forget to make a copy of it ( do not use the original as you will be cutting it up for effect)
I cut my image into three panels ....
and then started embellishing them with some vintage velvet ribbon, flat backs and buttons.
I made little bows with the velvet at the bottom of each tag...
I then found a box frame and positioned the tags on the backing of the frame ... and voila a personalised and somewhat different gift to add as a Christmas decoration or give as a hand made gift to that special someone who appreciates all things arty and personal.
