Snow Pals

Hey Friends! I am back with another holiday shaker tag, this time using one of the newly released Sparkle Blends mix Snow Pals from Doodles Paper Playground.

Step One: Trim a piece of both watercolor paper and heavy duty cardstock to the same size. These two will layer on top of each other to create the shaker tag.

Step Two: Using masking tape, create a stripped pattern on top of the watercolor paper.

Step Three: Blend ink over the non masked sections of the watercolor paper. I used Candied Apple Distress Oxide. Let dry. Remove the masking tape.

Step Four: Both spray and splatter silver simmer spray over the watercolor paper.

Step Five: Die cut the watercolor paper. I used a Poppy die called Twinkling Hearts. Save both pieces.

Step Six: Adhere the positive die cut to the heavy duty cardstock so it will align with the die cut frame.

Step Seven: Create the shaker frame using three dimensional tape. Add the tag ribbon to the adhesive so it hangs out above the top of the tag. Fill the shaker with the Snow Pals Shaker Blend mix.

Step Eight: Add a piece of Acetate to the opening of the die cut. Using a liquid adhesive that will dry clear add Vellum to the open hearts to fog them over. Adhere the watercolor paper to the filled shaker frame.

Step Nine: Add extra sequin bits and bobbles to the frosted hearts. I used a couple of snowflakes and a snowman from the Snow Pals blend.

I love how this shaker tag came out. It has just enough holiday feel, but not necessarily clearly a ‘xmas’ tag. How would you use the new Snow Pals blend? Let me know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
