Sparkly Ornament Tag Tutorial



I have some sparkly ornament gift tags to share with you today.  No stamping involved.  They're easy to make, and oh so sparkly fun!

Here is what you need:  Double sided adhesive sheets (I used Scor-tape's 6x6 double-sided adhesive sheets), dies (I used Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament dies), a border Punch (I used EK Success), and some glitter (I used Vintage & Sparkle Glitter).  I also used some border dies by Spellbinders:  Asian and Persian Accents.  I actually found the punches to work the easiest though.


Start by punching a border with your border punch, then peel the back off of the rest of the sticker paper and attach it to white Cardstock.  You could punch two strips of the border if you like if you want to cover more of your ornament with a pattern.



Then, peel off the sticker paper from the front of the diecut ornament piece.
Peel the back off of the punched border and attach it where you want it on the ornament.  The top of the ornament is very sticky, so try not to touch it or the glitter won't adhere.




Now sprinkle the glitter over the top and burnish it (rub it in with your finger)



Remove the top of the border sticker tape and add the next color of glitter.




Woila!!  There you have it.  A beautiful, sparkling gift tag.

Hint:  It's best to do the background a darker color than the pattern, because otherwise you will see the darker color against the lighter background.

I made two white ornaments, but the red shows up a bit.  I don't mind because irl it's not as noticeable.  Whatever your preference is.

Here are a few of my favorites.



Chevrons are very popular this year, so of course I had to make a chevron decorated ornament tag.  ;)



That's it for today.  Thanks for dropping by!

Happy Stamping!
