This is Amber from Crazy Little Projects here with a project for my very favorite holiday...Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving with all of its warm, cozy traditions and I love thinking about what I am thankful for.

In light of that I thought it would be nice to make some Thankful gift tags to give with small gifts to friends I am thankful for.

The fun thing about these tags is that I use the Paper Effects to make them slightly dimensional!

Items needed:

  • Cardstock
  • Accessories to decorate your tag
  • String or twine

Instructions:

The fun thing about these tags is that I use the Paper Effects to make them slightly dimensional!

If you look really close here you can see that the paint on this tag is raised. It's also a little bit pearly and shiny and looks really nice.

I first printed out the word Thankful from my computer. (If you can free hand this successfully then go for it. I can't, so I used the text to trace.)

Open your Paper Effects. Be careful as you open the package. Down near the bottom you will see a little metal cap that is packaged separately. There is also a tiny little metal pin. You don't want to lose these, so open them carefully.

The metal cap will screw on to the black tip of your Paper Effects bottle:

When you are done using it, you will want that little pin. You can stick it down in there to keep the paint from drying out.

To use the Paper Effects, gently (very gently) squeeze as you write on your tag. Just move like you are writing and gently squeeze the paint on. I practiced a lot first to get the feel of it. I found that if I just squeezed with my thumb it made a very gentle flow that was easy to work with and turned out nice.

This Paper Effects paint dries in just a few minutes and will dry very hard.

Add some stickers, string, twine, etc. to your tag and give it to someone wonderful in your life!

Happy Thanksgiving!
