Welcome to Paper Trey Ink’s October Blog Hop. This month’s theme was to make a set of at least 5 holiday gift tags. I don’t celebrate any holidays so I just made some fun winter themed tags.
I dyed my own ribbon for this project. The first batch I used some reinkers that ended up splitting into too many purple tones so I redid it with only a greenish navy. That worked perfectly. Then I added some pewter Distress stain to add a metallic sheen which looks pretty IRL but is impossible to photograph and just looks white. Oh well. It’s also impossible to see the glitter I added to the snowflakes with glitter embossing powder.
The die cut is very intricate and dainty and therefore would be hard to adhere except for a new product I used, E6000 adhesive spray. It is messy as there is lots of overspray so use scratch paper or your craft sheet and be sure to hold it in place for at least 1 minute as it isn’t very tacky at first. Other than that learning curve, it’s a great product! It also says to clean out the entire nozzle and straw after every use which is a huge pain but I’ve not done it and so far, so good!
Enjoy the rest of the hop! Rebecca
