Kiss Kiss Valentine Shaker Tag Holiday Home Decor


Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here and I’ve got a very sweet Valentine treat for you! It’s a shaker tag created with the oh so cool Hello Word Frames.

So much cuteness here I can hardly stand it!!!!! The secret to the success of this project is that the frame has straight sides to make it easy to cut the foam…otherwise I’d be in a big mess and glued to the project. Okay…I did glue myself to it….but that happens to me all the time.

I’ve pulled out all the sparkly bits and trims for this because that’s what Valentine is for.

I intentionally adhered the sequins around the edge for equal distribution of the colors and shapes. There’s hearts inside and pretty mint along with some holiday postage stamp cut outs.  I didn’t want all the sequins to get squished behind the large stamps.

I finished off this tag with a charming little banner in mint to coordinate with the sequins.
Here’s how I made the shaker….

I started with the Hello Word Frame with the heart cut outs and a few patterns of holiday paper. There’s also some repurposed packaging from the flowers and foam that I traced and cut to fit.

I gave the chippie a base coat of white acrylic paint then used my dabber and pen to apply adhesive to the heart section. Next I sprinkled on the red glitter embossing powder and set it with the heat tool.
I glued the layers together with the sequins and stamps inside, then covered the edges with tinsel trim. Then I added it to my tag and layered on all the embellies.

I’m so pleased with how this turned out!!!! I think I’ll be making shakers with the rest of the frames from the package : )

Holiday Merry Wishes Tag


Hey there Peeps. Ginny here to share a very festive Christmas Tag I created with many of my favorite Cheery Lynn Designs Dies and some fun patterned papers and embellishments.
I created the base for this tag with the Coved Rectangle Stitch and Cut die using the middle size to cut 1 from 110lb cardstock and 1 from red cardstock. I adhered these together to make a sturdy layer to add the rest of the sections.

Using the next size down in the set of Coved Rectangles I cut a layer from red checked paper and attached it with spacers between.

To add texture and detail I tucked in a section of Gauze Border that I snipped to fit and dovetailed.  It’s held on with glue and a funky giant paper clip.

Christmas flowers are the funnest to make and these were a (slightly messy) blast.  I created the Poinsettia with matching red cardstock and accented the tips with Sugar Glitter Paste before assembling. The center is  pieces clipped from a berry pick and given a light coat of alcohol ink to color it to coordinate. The white flower is the  Gardenia cut with crisp white.  Every flower arrangement needs leaves so why not use Holly shaped leaves with a little inking on the edge and Stickles to make it extra festive?

A few last details like this Tiny Kaleidoscope  Doily , chipboard sentiment and pearly accents are perfect for this tag and finished off with some snappy red and white stitched ribbon.
