Here's the Festive Holiday Shaker Tags/Ornaments
I've made for today!!
 I LOVE being able to combine my Tags as Gifts/Ornaments as well!! Seems like after I spend so much time on them I'd like for them to be used in another way, rather than just thrown away!! So I created these FESTIVE Holiday Shaker Tags, that also double as Ornaments!!
 I Die Cut the Glittered Polka Dot Patterned Paper from Pebbles Inc. Cozy & Bright 6x6 paper pad using the NEW "Ornamental ShakerDie Set!! Then I Die Cut both the Acetate Sheets and Double Sided Adhesive Foam layers to create my Shaker Tag!! I can't tell you enough how in LOVE I am with the Double Sided Adhesive Foam Sheets!! They make creating Shakers SO EASY, because the adhesive is already there!! NO MORE MESSY Acetate Windows due to Glue being where it doesn't belong!! That's a HUGE Game changer for me!!😉 I added some White Snowflake Sequins, Sparkling Clear Sequins, White Sequins, Silver Star Sequins and some Vintage Glass Glitter for my Shaker Elements!! 
For the Finishing Details I added the Pine and Holly Leaves that were Die Cut from the Pines & Holly Die Set to add them along the top of the Ornament!! A Red Metallic Jingle Bell finishes it off!! I used some Therm O Web Toner Sheet to Foil using Silver Deco Foil and Die Cut it for the Ornament Topper!! Then used some We R Memory Keepers Wire and the Wire Jig to create the Ornament Hook!! I also added some of the Distress Rock Candy Glitter to a Piece of Cardstock and used the Decorative Strip Dies that are included in the "Ornamental ShakerDie Set to create some Die Cut Decorative Stripes for the Center of the Ornaments!! There are SO MANY CREATIVE ways you could use just these Dies!! I LOVE VERSATILITY and this Set ROCKS!! In real life its the PERFECT Finishing touch!! Its so hard to see how well it matches the Glitter on the Patterned Paper, but TRUST me when I say the Recipients will definitely be WOWED!! 
For the inside of the Tags I've Stamped a Sentiment from the NEW "Holiday Stockings" Stamp Set!! I've used a different one for each Tag!! Stamping them in Versa Mark Ink and Embossing them with Red and Green WoW Glitter Embossing Powder after I added alittle Tumbled Glass and Scattered Straw Distress Inks to make the Sentiments POP!! The To: and From: were Stamped and Embossed using Stamps from the "Joyful Tags" Stamp Set!! I added some Distress Picket Fence Paint Splatters to dress up some Silver and Gold Pillow Boxes and my FESTIVE Holiday Shaker Tags/Ornaments are ready for the Gift Giving Season!! These will be Given to my Son Beckett's Teachers for the Holidays!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way they turned out, and hope you do too!!?? 
I created this Second Shaker Tag exactly the same way, just changing up the Design!! 
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you'll play along!! You can play along and create a tag too!! You can find the details and ink up at Tracey's Blog Here!!

  1. These are all so beautiful Larissa and I totally agree. Sometimes you just put too much work into them to see them ripped open and thrown away within minutes. LOL I give those ones to people who I KNOW will appreciate them and save them even if its only for a little while.

  2. Laura, your shaker ornaments are gorgeous; gifts in and of themselves! If these arrived in my home, they'd be part of my Christmas decor year after year! Keepsakes to treasure and delight! Thank you for dropping in at my blog and leaving a sweet, smile-making comment!

  3. Oh wow - those tags are spectacular - I would definitely want to save those to hang on the tree!

  4. A shaker treat box?!?! Your too much! Great job!

  5. Love love love these! I really like the way the tags open.

  6. What a cute idea to hang the little pillow boxes on the tree and your tags are adorable!

  7. Love to make pillow boxes.
    These are darling. More
    great ideas for me to use.
    thank for sharing

  8. Funny you mentioned how much time you put into these, because my first reaction was "wow, she put a LOT of work into these tags." Totally worth it. They are awesome.

  9. Wow wow wow !! So festive, beautiful, and awesome christmas projects, Larissa ! I love the colors, sparkles and your designs !
    Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.


  10. Hey girl! Thanks so much for linking up your sweet tag in our challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I always love stopping by. As you know, I'm still recovering from should surgery, and it's SO frustrating that I can't go create all the fabulous tags I'm inspired to create. But for now, I just have to appreciate all the great ideas. I got most of my project for Paper Sweeties done pre-surgery...just added a bit more to it. Having one arm is SO frustrating. I can't do my ponytail, and I love a ponytail when I'm at home. OK...I'm rambling. Thanks for sharing your sweet tag and for the fabulous inspiration. Take care, my friend.

  15. So true to put so work into tags and they rip them and throw them away or better yet, they don't look at them at all!! Yours are simply adorable, I hope your family and friends give you the praise you deserve!!

  16. These are fabulous tags/ornaments! I know I would keep them! Love the patterned paper you used and the decorative holly toppers you made for them. The glittery sentiments are so pretty!
