I often cut a strip off an A4 sheet so have dozens, if not hundreds, of pieces of white card. And yes, I did move them to a new house earlier in the year. I threw away the real rubbish but couldn't get rid of all the offcuts, so now I've brought them here I do need to use them...
I've made a lot of gift tags for Christmas. I cut out circles then embossed using a snowflake embossing folder.
Then I realised that it embosses on both sides! Duh. It does look ok and you could write on the reverse but I came up with a plan to back with a slightly larger, plain circle. So the back is blank and smooth to write on.
I was just sticking them down when I decided that I liked the debossed side very much. So I made some using one side and some the other.
I was going to use embroidery thread for hanging but then I remembered this raffia which looks Christmassy. A bit of fiddly knotting and they look a whole lot better than a bit of thread would have.
I like the round shape, I think it looks a bit different. I found some shiny cardstock so I'm having a go at inking some for another effect but I do like the white. And it goes with most wrapping paper.
Don't forget to make card hangers with this easy trick which I copied from a friend a few months ago. It uses up plenty of snippets too. I need to make a few more before Christmas.
I'm just popping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground to show these tags. I've used up quite a few snippets but I still seem to have plenty left! I have a dotty embossing folder which I think would make pretty tags.
I thought it might be a bit quieter in the playground this week but what with bonfire night going off with a bang - fireworks, potatoes, hot choc and brownies and more marshmallows (plus a few things I can't mention), it's no less crazy than last week it seems. My head and my waistline will suffer again...
