LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS TAGS

SONY DSC

I don’t know about you but I seemed to have left so many things to the last minute this year and Christmas is looming rapidly! Sometimes you want to add a little something special to your wrapped gift so why not add a tag? These are so much fun to do and don’t take long to make (ideal at this time of the year).

What I love about Manor House Creations flowers is the wonderful quality of them. The paper flowers take altering so well and in this case I’ve used the white Krystal flower and changed it to a lovely Christmas red using paint.

1. Remove the centre stamens (sorry about the photo as this was taken late at night – my usual scrapping time!)

2. Paint the flower your chosen colour and allow to dry

3. If you wish you can change the colour of your stamens. I wanted mine to be white so I dipped them in Gesso:

4. Once everything is dry, pop the stamens back into your flower and play away! I added a touch of glitter to the outside of my petals before adding them to my tags.

Have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy this amazing time of the year
