Looking for something yummy to make today? A new challenge starts at Tag You're It Challenge - and this one is from our design team member Donna from Room in a Cupboard blog! Donna's been making me crazy with all the clear acetate tags she's been making lately! I think they're so unique and unusual! I'm happy for an excuse to make one of my own. The hardest part about this one was finding some clear acetate that was strong enough for the job. I tried clear transparency and it was flimsy. I knew it wouldn't hold the weight of the ribbon let alone the number of die cuts that I wanted to stack on top of it. I finally wound up recycling a thick piece of plastic. It was included as a divider in a card stock storage bin I purchased at Joann. If you look close you'll see it has a striped pattern on it. I loved everything about Donna's tag - its elegant and sophisticated.
I kept lots of elements the same - particularly the layout from Donna's design. To try to make this more "me" I added color - a pink poinsettia, and green pine boughs.
Instead of clear baubles I added wood sequins and a few scattered gems.
I think this one might catch your fancy too!! I hope you will give it a try! To see more samples from the design team and to link up your design just click here and jump to the Tag You're It Challenge Blog!
