Shaker Tags

It is already advent - so time to get ready with the christmas presents! I've got some snowy tags for you today that will help to make your presents real eye-catchers!

I started by die-cutting the tags with the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Cross Stitch Tag from light blue cardstock. Then I stamped images of the Creative Expressions Festive Friends stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white card-stock, colored them with Copic markers, added details with a white Sharpie pen and fussy-cut them. I then added some sentiments onto the tags, e.g. from the Vildastamps Stempelplatte Weihnachten.

Then I fused cheap plastic pockets (the more expensive often don't fuse that well) using a tag as a stencil with my My Memory Keepers Fuse Tool. Don't forget to leave one side open to be able to fill the pockets later!

I then filled the tags with sequins, star confetti and snow powder. Then I closed the tag byfusing a horizontal line below the top and another one along the top border. Into the section between the two horizontal fusion lines I poked a hole with the Crop-a-dile.

Now the clear pouches can be tied onto the cardstock tags with some bakers' twine.

I hope I could inspire you a bit - have fun creating your own shaker tags!
