XL Tag Photo Display with NEW Adhesive Glitter Paper

One of the frustrations of creating DIY crafted home décor is being limited by the size of paper offered. This adhesive cardstock measures a generous 12×24 inches, is self-adhesive, and non-shed glitter. It can be run through any electronic cutting machine on the vinyl setting. This project shows how nice it is to be able to utilize the larger size on a home décor project that measures 18″ and would normally need to be covered with two pieces of 12×12 craft paper. Additionally, since this cardstock is self-adhesive, no messy glues were required!

Directions:

Step One: Untie the section of jute from the wooden tag, set aside for later use. Sand any rough edges.  Turn the adhesive cardstock over to the back side and trace the outline of the XL tag on cardstock backing using a pencil.

a2

Cut the tag shape out using the pencil markings. Remove adhesive backing. Apply the adhesive cardstock over the top of the wooden tag- take care to smooth out any bubbles. Using a craft knife, trim any excess cardstock from sides and hole of the wooden tag.

Step Two:  Using silver glitter adhesive cardstock piece, make a standard hole punch, leaving approximately 1″ from the bottom of the cardstock piece.

a6

Using a 1″ craft punch, position the punch over the standard hole punch, and center the craft punch. This will create a circle with a perfect centered hole- for the “grommet” on the wooden tag.

a8

Peel adhesive backing off of the cardstock “grommet” and apply to tag, over the hole. Replace jute piece stringing it through the hole.

Step Three:  Select letters to spell out “SMILE” or other chosen word. Adhere letters to end of the wooden tag.

Designer tip: I always like to adhere the front letter, and the back letter- and then space the middle letters out evenly.

Step Four:  Using silver glitter adhesive cardstock piece, cut two sections of cardstock to fit the tops of the wooden clothespins. Peel back adhesive and apply to clothespins. Adhere clothespins to wooden tag. Insert photos into clothespins.

Step Five:  Continue to embellish project as desired.

I added some pretty paper flowers to the fill some space on the left side of my tag.

Designer note: It would be simple to change the orientation of this XL Wooden Tag. Follow all steps, turn the tag vertically, and adhere 1 wooden clothespin to the top center of the tag. This would be a perfect size for a 5×7, vertically oriented photo.

Quick Christmas Cards

As my Christmas card list grows every year, I like to come up with designs that are easy to mass produce. This card certainly fits the bill!  One embossing folder and a few simple embellishments makes a hand made card that looks like it took a long time to create, but it didn’t!

christmas-cards-CoredinationsChristmas Card Supplies:

a

Step 1: The great thing about the Core’dinations Cut and Emboss series of papers, is that they are the exact size of a standard embossing folder (and incidentally the exact size of an A2 card).

Select the color of paper you would like to use, and insert it into the embossing folder of your choice. Make sure the paper is right side UP and the manufacturer name on the embossing folder is facing UP as well.

b

Remove the cardstock from the folder and lay it on a flat surface.

Step 2: Using a Sand-it Gadget, lightly sand the surface of the cardstock to reveal the lighter core. Remove any cardstock “dust” with the Dust Buddy.

c

Step 3: Using a glue pen, go over any surface you would like to have glittered. The glitter will only adhere to areas that you add the glue pen to. Use your embossed image like a coloring book!

d

After you apply the glue, place your card into a Tidy Tray, and tap glitter over the glue surfaces. Shake off any excess. Allow the glittered/glue areas to dry.

Step 4: Using Liquid Pearls, add some bling to other areas of the embossed card! Liquid Pearls dry and look like tiny brads. A very quick, and inexpensive way to add character to embossed images.

e

When you have added the embellishments you desire, allow the images to dry and adhere to an A2 card base. I chose to machine stitch my cards, but any adhesive will work too.

Happy Crafting!

With only a few days left to Halloween we thought we would share some very treats for you!

And when we say treats, we of course mean festive Halloween tags :) Don’t forget to check out yesterday’s post for more of these fun and festive Halloween inspired tags. One for each day of the month of October.

Glitter Silk, Black Magic, Core Tags…you name it Designer Leica Forrest used it for her Halloween Daily Fun box of tags. I don’t know about you but this is my favorite time of year!

So for the last few days we have been sharing these fun tags Leica created for us.  This is a great idea for any month of the year…you could make them next month and pick something to be thankful every day or even December for fun things you and your family can do to celebrate Christmas.

Add some May Arts ribbon and you have the perfect tags.Don’t forget the sanding and embossing!

Stamping with Versamark looks GREAT on Black Magic Cardstock. Add a little bit of sanding on the edges and you are good to go!

Check out the gorgeous tags (on the right) using the Core Amour! Love this line for Halloween, too!  Leica stamped right on hers and used a bunch of fabulous Stampendous Glitter! Sky is the limit with Core.
