I have been obsessed with the paper source for about 2 years... I first learned about them when I was looking to buy a Gocco. (My gocco dreams have since been burst, but I still love the Paper Source! LOL!) So I was flipping through the catalog when I saw these tags...
Loved them so much I had to make my own version here:
And then purely by accident, I discovered it would be pretty easy to make a Mrs. Clause version too:
I'm going to use them as gift tags on presents, but they would be cute ornaments or a garland too. I used my marvey punches to make these. I used the Mint Scallop for the beard, the purple circle for the hats and hat bands, and the pink circle for the faces and for Mrs. Clause's hair. Then I used a Martha Stewart burst punch for the pom on the hat, and the yellow Marvey scallop for Mrs. Clause's bun. I think everyone NEEDS a white opaque pen too! I used my souffle pen from Sakura Japan for Santa's eyebrows, but a white sharpie would work good too!!
So I have sent all of the swaps out for my atc swap, but there are a few people who have still not recieved them, so I'm only gonna spoil things a little bit! I'm going to share my cards, but not the rest yet!
My new favorite thing to do is stamp on wood discs. You can buy them in a bag of like 25 or so, for about 3 bucks at Michael's. I used hearts and two different size discs for my cards. I think the possiblities are endless with this. I want to take the smaller discs and make ear rings out of them by drilling a little hole in the top and attaching them to wires. OMG! So cute! And fun and I love the feel of the wood!!
