I love this Snowflake Ribbon die from Poppy. It looks great in a tag or a card. For these tags, I gathered up all of the watercolor paper that I had put blue Nuance color on. I'm trying to use things I already had made; time is getting short!
I used the My Favorite Things MFT-525 Die-Namics Stitched Traditional Tag Set to cut these tags out of watercolor paper that I had already colored with Nuance.
Nuance is a water soluble powdered dye from Magenta. For posts about using Nuance, you can go here, here, and here, plus a lot of other posts on my blog. For the tags I made, I used a couple of the blue colors, raspberry, grass green and jade green.
After cutting the tags, I die cut the Poppy Snowflake Ribbon diagonally across it. I also die cut the Snowflake ribbon out of white glitter paper. I pieced the glitter snowflake into the Nuance tag and taped it all together on the back with transparent Scotch tape. I have a lot of pretty blue snowflake ribbons to use on another project.
To finish the tags, I die cut another tag out of Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock and adhered it to the back of the colored tag. I added a ribbon and applied some Sea Glass Stickles to the snowflake.
I love how these turned out, and they were pretty easy and quick to make! Quick is getting to be a good thing about now!
I just wrote the "to" and "from" on the back at the bottom and taped the tags to packages by the ribbon.
