Trace the outline of the tag on the wrong
side of the Xmas allover print paper. Use your ruler and measure ⅛” in
around the tag outline. Use this line as a guide and trim off the ⅛”
border, making the piece smaller all around.
Center and tape or glue the printed piece
onto the tag. Use the ¼” hole punch to re-punch the hole on the tag. Tie
the ends of the metallic cord together. Slip knot the cord thru the hole
of the tag.
Center and place the vellum over the tag on
the opposite end of the hole. Let the vellum extend over the 3 edges of
the tag about ¼”. Fold over the ¼” to the back of the tag, creating a
vellum pocket. Remove the vellum pocket and tear the unfolded end. Place
the vellum pocket back onto the tag. Tape or glue down the folded edges
onto the back of the tag.
Take the border print paper and tear along
the top edge lengthwise. Align the straight edge to the bottom of the
second tag and glue in place. Trim border paper to shape of tag.
Tear along the top of the tag, leaving
enough are above the border print to write a message. Use your pigment
pen to write a short message. Use the ¼” hole punch to re-punch the
tag’s hole if necessary. Slip the star garland into the hole and twist
and curl garland.
Slip tag #2 into the vellum pocket. Attach
tags to your gift!
