Welcome back to another day on the blog. Today I am sharing a set of Clear ATC Holiday Tags made with the Newer Clear Acetate ATC’s. The acetate is unique to work with, so I have been having fun just playing figuring out what works and what doesn’t work. What pastes will stick to the smooth surface and which ones to avoid.
Here is a short video of the creative process.
I started with a thick grit paste on the base of the ATC’s using the snowflake stencil. Again with any of the acetate products, caution is to be used when using the heat gun, it will melt the ATC’s. It is possible but to hold it a far distance away from the ATC.
Once the ATC’s had a good chance to dry, I added a little alcohol ink and water to add some colour to the back ground. Again, setting it to the side to dry.
I actually took regular old wrapping paper and covered the base of the gifts with it. Wrapping it up just like a normal gift. I used my Xyron Adhesive machine and added adhesive to the top portion of the gift. Using a bone folder I place a decorative foil on the adhesive and rub the foil until it transfers onto the chipboard. Once I transfer all the foil, I glue the two chipboards together.
On the back of the ATC. I started with some Dresden trim to outline the card. Using the Yuletide word stickers and paper die-cuts, I layered a small holiday sentiment to finish them off. Thinking that these would be great for some holiday gift bags, I punched a hole in the corner and added some seam binding to be able to attach them to a gift.
What a fun and easy little holiday tag using the clear acetate ATC’s. I hope this inspires some crafty creations with the clear products from the store. Happy Holidays to you all during this festive time. Thank you for stopping!
