These tags came out as a real surprise to me, I got them wrong first time in using a Christmas tree print paper as a background, but the minute I changed it to a star print they took on a whole different look.
I found the Origami Super Paper Stack in The Works, the paper isn’t quite as thick as scrapbook paper, but the designs are in perfect proportion to the scale I usually work with, so it was a done deal.
I used children’s wooden picture dominoes for the tag base, wooden gold glitter stags heads (6 for £1 from The Works Christmas range), and my trusty old Dynamo label maker.
While I was experimenting on how to put things together, I forgot my “less is more” code and just piled it on, adding jingle bells to the stags antlers by drilling two small holes and then fastening the bells with jump rings.
It was very tempting to add a red nose too, but I think I will go down that path if/when I can get another pack of the stag heads next time I pop into town.
I originally edged the tag with a black fine liner pen, but it didn’t show up very well, so I braced myself and used a white gel pen instead, and I think it worked without being too overpowering.
