Photo gift tags make the holiday bright!

This holiday season, make a pretty photo gift tag to place on gifts for that special someone! My daughter is all about crafting and pretty things, I know she will absolutely love receiving this present in her Christmas stocking.

Rebecca Price
  • G&P Landscape DIY Ornament Kit
  • G&P Snowflake Accents
  • G&P Glastique  Gloss Fishing Glaze
  • G&P Cranberry Wine Enamel Powder
  • G&P Pure Sparkle Silver Glitter
  • Marvy Embossing Heat Tool
  • My Mind's Eye "All Is Bright" Twine
  • Paper Sack
I begin by removing the pieces for one DIY Landscape Ornament from the package. I sponge  a light coating of Glastique Gloss Finishing Glaze onto the pieces and coat them with Cranberry Wine Enamel Powder. Using a heat tool, I set the powder.

I apply Glastique Gloss Finishing Glaze to the Snowflakes, and then give them a healthy coating of Pure Sparkle Silver Glitter.

I use the clear dome from the DIY Landscape Ornament Kit to trace an oval onto a picture of my daughter, and cut it out.

With all the pieces ready, I build the ornament using Glastique Gloss Fishing Glaze as adhesive. I secure the ornament with clip clothespins while it dries.

When the ornament is set, I apply the Snowflakes following the same technique. I also add a bit of twine around the bubble dome.

I select some cute girly gifts and place them in a paper sack, tying the top with twine.

Attach the photo gift tag to the paper sack, and my gift is ready for giving!
