Christmas in July - Tag window snowflake - 2011

hello welcome to my blog! Today I'd like to share with you a technique I learned from Laurie Krauss - Stampin Up Consult who rocks!!!

Her version used the SU lg and small labels to make the tag windows.

I used my provocraft cricut expression cartridge Tags Bags and More set at 2 1/4".You need 8 tag windows for each snowflake.

I used winter woodland and joys of the season cartridges

for the inside snowflakes.

I cut vellum into 4 1/4 x 3 3/4 rectangles

I folded a cross into the center of the vellum piece to line up the windows.

The tag windows will extend beyond the vellum

I used some snail adhesive on the tag top to adhere to the vellum.

First layer to form a crossnext layers at angles to the firstthen flip it over and snail glue the pointscut out the points of the snowflake

with the tag bags and more labels you get an inner snowflake

Here I put the two snowflakes on to the tag snowflake with a sparkly brad and my hole puncher.

For the background I used my Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.

A little sparkly ribbon and wha la!!!!thanks for looking

let me know what you think!
