Christmas Tags 2.2

July 30, 2016

I’m on a Christmas Tag kick all of a sudden. I love this gumball machine, but I haven’t really figured out what to do with it yet. I thought it would be fun to fill it with candies that have Christmas images on them. Be forewarned, there was a lot of masking involved. I ended up with 15 tags total.


All 15 tags together.

Extra Details: I started by stamping the gumball machine as many times as I could on a full sheet of card stock. (15 times to be exact) Then using Post It tap, I stamped the little images on the gumballs. All 15 tags have the same images. I used colored ink when I had too.

Next was coloring, lots and lots of coloring.  I used colored pencils to color everything in. I mostly stuck to the traditional red and green colors. I added a little light blue just for interest. Then, I fussy cut each gumball machine out. Luckily, the shape was fairly simple so it didn’t take too long. I lined the edges with a black marker to help hide any cutting errors.

To make the gumball machines into tags, I added a glitter tag to the back of each. Some just got the top park of a tag and a few got a whole tag. I didn’t have enough glitter paper to give each gumball machine a whole tag. I was trying to use up some scraps.

I added some red and white twine to the top of the tags as a finishing touch.
