HoliDAY #9: Gift Tags with Trisha

Welcome to day 9! For today's HoliDAY project, it is going to be about gift tags and SEQUINS! I want to show you how I created this holiday tag. This  would be a perfect holiday touch for your presents or inserts for your December Daily.

I learned this trick from Amy Tan when I took her  class at Paper Tales last year. She showed us an easy way to adhere sequins. The trick is to use double sided tape! The best one that I have used is American Crafts  This to That Double-Sided Red Tape.  Or you can use any double-sided tape that you have.  Here's how I did it. 

I wanted the tag to look as if you dipped the tag in sequins. I used three strips of double-sided tape to create that thickness. Then, I poured  the small sequins first. The bigger sequins second and lastly the smaller sequins to fill in the empty spaces. There aren't any particular order to put the sequins, this is just the way I did it. 

For the final step, I just tap or flick the tag to get rid of the extra sequins.  Don't forget to fix some of the sequins because  some of them might be standing up, instead of laying flat.  That's it, now you can decorate them to your own liking. :)

Here are some more tag that I made using this trick. 

I used one strip of double-sided tape.
You can even create your own glitter tape!

Try to use different sizes of the double-sided tape to create different thickness. I hope you enjoy today's project. If you have any question, please leave a comment and I will response to them as soon as possible.  Have a great holiday!
