It's the last day of Visions of Sugarplums! So many wonderful projects from the bloggers and awesome giveaways from the stores. A big 'ole HUG to them all!
Bete's Iralamiji Shop has always been a favorite. Such beautiful goodies to be found! She's got Christmas tags all ready to go. The one I used on this package is from the White Christmas collection. If you need cute tags for Christmas - look no further!
I am really in love with how this bow turned out. And it is so easy!
You can use a bow die or electronic file (like this one from The Cutting Cafe - also comes in PDF). You just need extra tails - a total of 8.
Put 4 tails on the bows just like you normally would if they weren't stacked. Then fill in the corners with the other 4 tails. If you don't want to use a bell in the middle, you can simply cut a piece of paper about 3/4" wide and roll it into a circle.
Need another stocking stuffer or easy gift? Make some quick tags and tie them to some awesomely huge candy canes. I was surprised to come across these at Walgreens. Once again, you can find darling tickets to make it easy and very pretty from Iralamija Shop. These tickets are from Bright Christmas Tickets.
Okay, yes, there are a lot of snow globes out there and a lot of them have the iconic auto with a tree. But I don't care how many there are - I want one,too! Today on my way home, I saw a real car with a real tree tied to the top. Cool, right?
My snow is a combination of Baking Soda, Baking Powder and course glitter. It's really pretty snow, actually.
First I didn't want the mustard colored lid to this jar, so I painted it. I think it took 3 coats.
This is my first time to use glass paint. The snowflake is so pretty!
It's a good idea to tape the stencil to the glass. Not only does it help hold it in place, it also provides some space outside the stencil for the paint to land without it getting on the glass iteself. For me, a paint dauber worked better than a brush.
Then I topped it with a snowflake. Confession: I have knocked over the little truck a couple of times, but at least it was easy to take off the lid and fix it!
