JnW Crafts "Thankful" Tag

With Christmas and an imminent move just around the corner, I find myself under pressure to be ready for the holidays NOW!  My crafting supplies will be packed for transport within the next couple of weeks and I am trying my best to work ahead.

My guest spot for JnW Crafts is coming to an end also, and I wanted to use one of my favorite templates before my time is up...the teddy bear.   The teddy bear is synonymous with the holidays...soft and fuzzy wearing a stocking cap and scarf, nestled among the presents, or the topic of a Christmas storybook.  I chose to put my teddy bear on a gift tag to be used on a very special gift.


Before I made the tag, I covered the acrylic bear with PVA Glue and Flower Soft then set it aside to dry. I adhered holiday patterned paper to the tag, created some additional layers, and inked all of the edges to give the tag a vintage look.  Next, I die-cut some pine branches and hot glued them at the top of the tag along with a couple of pine cones and red ribbon.  The teddy bear, with a red bow tied around his neck, is glued on top of the tag layers along with the sentiment, "Thankful for you this holiday season!"   A little red acrylic heart embellishment is the final touch.

I am super happy with the way this tag turned out.  It has the vintage look I was going for and lots of dimension and texture.
