TH Dec Tag

Created this Tim Holtz Dec Tag with a few changes from what TH created.

Added burlap to the manilla tag. Sewed a zig zag stitch around the burlap covered tag.

I debossed the same words TH used 'merry & bright.' Homemade a shadowpress station using cardboard. Placed the debossed words cardstock in homemade shadowpress staation and used VersaMark ink & Zing gold embossing powder on the 'merry & bright' letters.  Heat embossed.

Die cut some tickets using TH ticket die. Stamped one of the tickets. Attached tickets using TH staple.

Die cut a TH mini Reindeer. Used TH Distress Ink on edges. Attached the Reindeer. Used stickles on Reindeer nose.

Die cut some greenery using TH greenery dies. Added some jingle bells with twine.

Used TH Distress Ink on ribbon. Attached ribbon to bottom & top of tag.

  8. I really love your tag! I googled homemade shadow press station and yours came up! but it did catch my eye in the gallery! I have to say you did an amazing job making your own station! Got to go figure that out now, cause I won't be getting one of the real one's any time soon! I think you are going to be a winner this month! Hugs!
