Ornaments Tags and Foil


Working with the Tim Holtz foil paper packs today, this is Confections. For an 8"x 8" piece I cut two 4" x 5 1/4" and then I have two pieces perfect for tags after using the larger ones for card fronts. The Santa stamp is an old, retired one from PSX that I really love.


Clear glass ornaments can be found in most craft stores at this time of year (or you can wait and get tons of them on clearance after the holiday). I made my own thin, pourable glue to coat the insides and then sprinkled Nuvo Desert Sunset glitter inside. This is one of my favorite glitters this year with so many warm colors of sparkle, they look so pretty with the tree lights reflecting from them. 
For the glue I used Aleene's clear tacky glue in a little plastic bottle and added hot water and shook to mix. Roughly a half and half recipe.
