A Two Crazy Crafters Christmas Tale and Tag!

Hello friends!
Merry Christmas to you!

Two crazy crafters the night before Christmas all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar kissed ideas danced in their heads.
They went all through the house looking for glitter
They snipped and glued and sprinkled with sugar.
They wanted to remain in a sense of vintage,
So they crafted and created with a sweet old image.
They valued the old
More precious than gold.
And hoped to share more than they could hold.
Snuggled under afghans with hot chocolate and whipped cream
They drifted away with their thoughts and their dreams.
They remembered Christmases past with Barbie dolls and cookie jars,
Sweet teddy bears and Hot Wheel cars.
Treasured memories old and new,
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year, too!

For our last day of Sugar Kissed Christmas, I have one more tag to share!

Cut a tag shape to 3x6 or use a manila tag.
Print and cut above vintage image.

Ink tag with red Distress ink. I used Festive Berries.

Flick droplets of water with your hand across the tag and set aside to dry.

Take a splatter stamp or a flick across with a tooth brush, white paint to cover the entire tag.

Glue image to the center and tie a pink bow across the bottom.

Add a mini banner and a Christmas sentiment to the top of the tag.
Tie pink ribbon through the top of the tag.

Take red glitter glue to accent the berries in the image to finish it off.

Merry Christmas wishes to all!
Twyla and Lindsey
