Gecko Galz

So as we near Christmas I thought it might be fun to share a few tags with all my followers that might inspire you all to create your own tags for friends and loved ones.
I always like to make my gifts a little special by creating hand made tags for all my friends and with a good deal of them they then take them and use them as ornaments for their tree. So here is the first one.

I started out with a Large chip board tag from Recollections and then cut a piece of gold scripted vellum to cover the top and inked with Distress inks in Vintage Photo Color. Using glossy accents I glued to top of tag and let dry.
Next I found an amazing image from Gecko Galz "Let it Snow Jewels" enlarged it to 5" and cut it out then on the back adhered two metal wings that I found in the Christmas area of Hobby Lobby. Next I adhered the image to the center of the tag.
Using a clear stamp that reads "Blessed" from Canvas Corp I stamped my sentiment on the bottom of the image using black ink.
Next I adhered two rustic stars on each bottom corners I got the stars from Hobby Lobby and originally they were on wire and I pulled them free of the wire.
Next I added clear stickles to the image to give it some shimmer and to finish tied a piece of ribbon from my stash (this is a great time to use ribbon leftovers because you dont need that much)

And that is my tag of the day. Have fun creating your own tags!
Happy crafting
