tag ornaments

happy friday :) well one of my favorite places, ellen hutsons in the classroom is doing a fun feminine take off of tim holtzs awesome 12 tags of christmas...be sure to go check out both places  i wish i had an ounce of each of their creativity and talent!  although i love all the tags made, my favorite of the feminine twist happens to be this one from becky olsen (tag # 8) where she painted i utilized my cricut cutting machine instead.
i used tagsbagsboxesandmore tag cut at 6~1/4 inches, then one cut at 4 inches window feature on. i adhered that with popdots. i made a template from the window piece onto the larger tag  and cut a window then added a piece of acetate. i cut the branches from winterwoodland cartridge  large enough so theyd overhang on the back so i could adhere them without glue or tape being seen . i colored them with colorbox fluid chalk (chestnut roan and warm green)  i also used stickles in frosted lace and let that dry before adhering them.  i used that same cartridge for the bird.i then added another piece of acetate so the cuts are sandwiched. i added ribbon and buttons and a $bin noel stamp.
thank you so much for taking the time to check out what i did i wish i could get it photographed better as this is really much prettier in the real .. and be sure to go to in the classroom and tims 12 tags too simply amazing!  hugs  shelly
so you get the idea of the window feature
trying to avoid the glare i laid this down on a white cloth ( you cant see the glue on the top inner edge when its hanging )
