Clear Christmas Tags

Hi everyone,

Today I have finally cracked open my fuse tool and made something with it…..Hurray! and  I got myself back into my shed again, I have not been up there for ages..

I made some clear Tags, shaker stylie~ish 🙂

I challenged Clare (Gotpaintinmyhair) to make 3 Christmas tags earlier today, and to record a video for Youtube and do a blogpost, and she challenged me to break out the fuse tool and make something with it.. so I made tags too

merry tag 3

I used the Sizzix Scalloped Tag #2 Die for the tags and then used the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool to seal them together..

I also used the Clearly Besotted Stamps Merry window die and just chopped out the merry sentiment once it was diecut out of silver mirror cardstock.

I love how they turned out, I also have a youtube video available so you can see how they were made.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday, see you soon (I hope) 🙂
