As my title suggests me [Julie] would now like to give you [lovely GA blog readers] a quick tutorial on how I made lots of wired tissue paper leaves to decorate my Christmas gift tags:
What do you reckon? Pretty simple really aren’t they?
To form the body of my tags I cut up sheets of ‘Ouchless cardboard’ [available here in ready cut lengths]. Then, for the tags below I layered my wired tissue paper leaves on top of elements from my red and white ‘Candy Cane holiday mixed media color kit’ :
For the tags below I used some of the game chip pieces from my Candy Cane kit to form holly berries plus gems and a leaf from my ‘Funky Fa La La green and pink mixed media color kit’. On the tag on the right I followed the same technique as I showed in my tutorial but used fabric instead of tissue paper – and it works equally well.
If you’d like to see more examples of the tags I made using the techniques in my video – there’s some here on my blog in the next few days.
Until then, go hunt out some tissue, wire and card. Happy tagging !
