Be Jolly | Inspiration



Hi, Rona here! Wow! How beautiful have those layouts been?! Stay tuned, because there’s more to come next week!

I’ve been busy this month getting ready for the holidays, but I just couldn’t wait to dig into my stash of Evalicious goodies! In fact, I took the opportunity to crack them open when I needed a tag for a hostess gift.

I had seen the Gold Puffy Stickers on the website, but when I saw them in a video blog, I was blown away. These babies are GORGEOUS in real life. I mean, look: 


They are one of those things that are almost too pretty to use! So, I dipped in to the package for a few striped stars to use on my tag (although I couldn’t bring myself to use them all yet!).


I wanted the tag to have motion to it, so after the basic bottle tag had been made, I strung up some of the wood veneers and puffy stickers, and had them dangling from the Christmas Tree badge button.

I made the Oh What Fun PuffySticker two-sided by putting two similarly sized stickers back to back, and then sewing through them. 




I added a little extra glimmer to the wood veneers so they’d really sparkle! The cut outs in them were ideal to allow them to hang from a thread.


With the exception of the gold puffies, all of the Evalicious goodies used were from the “Oh What Fun” line, which is perfect for Christmas and December layouts and daily projects, and of course, bottle tags.

Thanks for joining me today. Off to make some more tags!

Oh, it's beautiful - but I can't bear to think of using puffy stickers on a tag that (gasp) might get thrown away! (; Love it - *I* would keep it!
