Hello all! It's a busy day on the blog with a new Christmas card for the Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week HERE, two new holiday cards for the Essentials By Ellen Holiday 2016 Release HERE, and finally this trio of Mama Elephant Wooly Winter Spinner Tags!
Last year I made THESE reindeer spinner tags using the Mama Elephant Reindeer Games Stamp Set. They were one of my most favorite holiday projects last year. When I saw the new Wooly Winter Stamp Set I knew it would be perfect to create this year's version of holiday spinner tags!
I started with the tag bases and carefully taped a tag from the Tags A Lot Die Collection and a circle from the Sew Fancy Die Collection together with post it tape and then die cut the dies six times. I'll need two tags (a front a back) per spinner design. Taping the dies together ensures that they die cut exactly the same each time. On the "front" tags I stamped a greeting from the new Retro Holiday Labels Stamp Set using Yeti White Pigment Ink. On the "backs" I stamped "to/from" from the Mini Messages Stamp Set with Yeti White Pigment Ink.
I stamped three of two Wooly Winter Stamp Set sheep designs on smooth white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I colored in the images with Copic Markers and then die cut the images with the coordinating Wooly Winter Dies.
I applied adhesive to the back of one of the tags and to the back of one of the sheep. Using a thin silver strand of embroidery floss, I carefully laid it through the center of the sheep and sandwiched it between a "front" and "back". Then I lined up the spinner in the window of the tag and carefully sandwiched the spinning mechanism between a "front' and "back tag.
I finished each tag by die cutting a white hole reinforcement piece from the Tags A Lot Die Collection and adhering it to the top of each tag. I threaded through some Lawn Trimmings twine and knotted it at the end. I threaded white silk ribbon through a silver jingle bell, then through the hole in the tag and tied it in a bow on the front of each tag.
