Tombow is blog hopping this week with Core’dinations with some fun ideas and great prizes! If you just came from Kate’s Blog you are on the right track! If not, and you want a chance to win a prize, go back to Tombow’s Blog and follow the projects!
I made some cute little gift tags that show the beauty of the distressing on the Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection. The birds were die cut from three colors of the cardstock and then pieced back together using the Dot Stamp Runner Adhesive. The dot adhesive is perfect to layer the tiny pieces together to make sure they hold while distressing. When using the Dot adhesive on small die cuts, the adhesive automatically applies to the die cut surface for perfect adhesion and no messy excess glue.
After the bird is put together, it is distressed with the Core’dination Sand-it Kit. The tag also uses the Kraft-Core Shattered cardstock and after the panels are adhered on and the rounded corners punched out, it is also sanded to reveal the kraft core. Here is a close-up of the tag, isn’t it cute? They will go perfectly with the Kraft wrapping paper I’m planning to use this year.
I used the Foam Tabs to give the bird a little dimension on the tag. The bird die cut that I used is from Elizabeth Craft Designs, but the technique would work on a variety of holiday themed die cuts.
