Tag Challenge

Every week on the Silhouette America blog they have a shape challenge.  The winner gets a $10 gift certificate to the online store, which is actually quite a lot when you consider most designs are 99 cents or less.

This week's challenge is to make a tag.  You have to use one of their tag shapes and it has to be a new project, but after that it's all up to you.

I used the base part of the Love You tag, but really any tag shape will do.

Then I modified it with lettering using the character spacing and line spacing tools (they show up at the bottom right hand side of the screen as soon as you start using your text tool).

Just pull out your Christmassy paper and cut out your pattern.

This is a great project for this tiny little scraps of your speciality glitter paper that you didn't want to throw out. 

Just use your glue runner and stick a piece behind the Merry part of your greeting.

I went back and pulled out that second 'r'
once I saw it in the photos~

That's it!  Easy peasy.  The blank area in the middle is for you to write the "To" and "From" part of your tag.

Hope next week's Silhouette challenge is as fun as this one was.  You can check out the other entries (or submit your own) HERE.
