The other day one of my dear blogging friends asked me how I got this gift tag to glitter so I thought that others might like to know too. I’ll include a few Easter tags I’ve made this week for little hostess gifts too.
First of all, you use this clear embossing ink pad to stamp your design on to your card. You can buy this and the other supplies I’ve use at any hobby/craft shop.
Next, press your stamp on to your card. The ink is clear so don’t be alarmed when you don’t see it.
You will also need some embossing powder. I bought this set with an array of pastel colors.
Sprinkle powder on top of your stamp impression and tap the excess onto scrap paper. Don’t worry. You won’t waste the powder. Carefully pour it back into your jar.
You should have an impression of your stamp on your card now, Next, you will need a heat tool. Just blow hot air on the impression like you were blowing your hair dry until you see the powder melt and glitter in front of your very eyes. This should only take a few seconds. It’s just like magic!
Here, I’ve made several to cut for more than one tag.
Going to a coffee this morning so I’m greeting my gracious hostess with a mini Easter bread basket attached with my handmade tag..
Here’s a closer look at the individual Easter yeast bread basket I made. You can find the recipe by clicking HERE.
These little girls, yes, they’re twins, are hosting an Easter Egg Hunt and have invited Pretty Boy so I wrapped them each a little hostess gift and personalized with a tag of their own photo from last year’s egg hunt.
Hope my playing around has inspired you in some small way to create a Happy Easter at your house!
I sharing this with others at Cindy’s place for Show and Tell Friday.
