New Releases!!

Did you get a chance to check out the new releases?? If not, head over to the store and check out the deals! All the new stuff is on sale 25% off for a few more days.

I used the new Fancy Christmas set for my project. (Sorry I'm running a little late with my post, I actually thought today was Wednesday! oops!)

I picked up a few wooden stars for .20 apiece. I grabbed some Christmas paper from last year and decoupaged it to the star. After it dried I decided I wanted to distress the edges a little and grabbed a buffer. Lara's helpful hint of the day is to distress the paper BEFORE applying the layer decoupage to the top layer. MUCH easier to distress that way. After it dried I used the crop-a-dile to punch the hole at the top and threaded it with hemp twine and a button. I stamped the To and From from the Fancy Christmas set with Versamark and embossed with gold powder. I wanted a more rustic look so I sponged gold acrylic paint on the edges.

I think this would make an adorable gift tag. I wonder who's going to get it??!!

Lara, such a gorgeous job on this!! Sure makes for a great addition to a very special gift, and then by extension wonderful for the tree to remember the gift! =)
