One of Letraset's special promotions this month (November 2012) is 20% off Metallic Marker Sets, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to go all Metallic & Magical for my project this week. Metallic Markers are ideal for all your Christmas craft projects, and I decided to use them to make these little tags.
I created a multi-coloured background by scribbling two different metallic marker colours onto a non stick craft sheet, spritzing with water and pressing the tag onto it. I did quite a few layers until I got the effect I liked. For the pink tag I used Pink and Gold metallic markers, for the blue tag I used Blue and Silver metallic markers and for the green tag I used Green, Light Green and Gold metallic markers. I used the colour that was left on the craft sheet to also colour some white seam binding to match each of the tags.
I used the metallic markers in various colours to ink up some snowflake stamps, and stamped these onto the tags randomly.
I diecut a couple of snowmen and a small deer from chipboard and coloured these in with either Silver or Gold metallic markers, then added some glitter and attached the diecuts to the tags as shown.
And this is how my finished tags turned out. If you use a heat tool to dry the tags in between layers, then this is a nice quick project - perfect for those last minute creations.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial - we'd love to see what you do with your Metallic Markers too. Remember to pop over to my blog for a festive marker giveaway.
