Today I am sharing the tag I made for the Scrapper's Delights 12 Tags of Christmas. This tag can also be used as an ornament after the gift is opened. I made this using the Fuse tool and a plain page protector.
I have a little tutorial on how I made this tag. I used the image Willie - Snow Angel from Scrapper's Delights.
The first thing I did was open the image in the Silhouette Studio and used the trace tool to create a cut line around the image. I then used the Mirror option to duplicate the image. This way I could glue the 2 peices together so you would be able to see the penguin on both sides of the tag.
After I cut the images on the Silhouette I colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers. Then I adhered the backs of the pieces together to create the two-sided image that would go inside the tag. I used Liquitex clear gloss gel to adhere the pieces, but any glue would work. I like to use the gloss gel for things like this because I am able to get a nice smooth, even coat and it holds really well.
Next I traced the shape of the tag around the image on the page protector.
I used the fuse tool and followed the trace lines, leaving an opening with enough room to add the sequins and the colored image.
After I had the 2 layers fused together (with the opening still there) I cut just between the fuse line and the pen line. Then I added the sequins and the image and fused the opening closed.
The final step was to punch a hole in the top and add a string or ribbon for hanging.
