Tag it! at MAWTT

Hello again

Here I am at last - sorry to my teamies for rolling in late this week I thought I had myself all organised but had a few last minute things came up last night and although I had my project for this week done it just wasn't photographed or posted on time - a bit ironic really because i was a day early with my Delightful Challenges post - me thinks I need to sort myself out, I'm not really having a problem with the DT work - its the days of the week - they sneak up!!

Anyway over at MAWTT this week we have a fab little challenge 

set by our lovely teamie Pami

The theme is 


We had a bit of discussion on the DT blog about what was and wasn't allowed and it was decided that as long as your project has a tag that you've made then it fits the challenge.  so not just Tags but cards that have tags are also OK.

Our fab sponsors this week are 

Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps

The DT girls got some lovely digis to play with and here's what I did with mine

I decided to make a gift box to go with the tag as often if I make a tag just on its own it gets sort of put to one side and lost - now I have a ready made gift box - so I'll have to go out Christmas shopping and buy gifts to fit my boxes instead of the other way round lol.

Heres what I did ....

  • I made the box with white pearl card for the base and striped card from a large DCWV pad I've had for years.  I used my Crafters Companion ultimate pro to make the box and lid - it really is so easy to do - you just follow the grid lines and the base and lid fit each other perfectly
  • The tag is cut with spellbinders labels eleven - I used the Kraft card to mount the white tag as the stripe card has a vintage shaded look to it - you can see it on the RH corner.  I then inked the two tags with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink and threaded it into Red organza ribbon
  • The cute snowman image is coloured with copics  to match the colours of the box lid
  • I decorated the box with the same ribbon - its just attached to the box lid in a cross and attached neatly inside the lid. 
  • Finally I made a snowflake with a spellbinders snowflake die set and blue glittered paper and a WOJ pearl brad.  Then I made a small snowflake and pearl to finish off the tag
why don't you have a look over at MAWTT challenge blog at what the other girls have made - i have to say I was so impressed by the different tags they all came up with - I'm sure you will be so inspired that you'll all rush off full of ideas to enter our challenge - at least that's the plan!

Challenges I'm entering with this tag - Christmas is just around the corner (closes 1st dec)
Simon says stamp - dies ans punches
Cdee - designs challenge
Pennys paper-crafty challenge - anything but a card

Hope you all have a great weekend
