I am a total sucker for all things neon, and I could no longer resist picking up the Martha Stewart Crafts Neon Glitter pack that I’ve had my eye on for quite a while, so be prepared to see plenty of fluorescent paper goodies in the coming months because I am loving this glitter!
I just had to add a little bit of neon to my new Holiday Wishes Gift Tags, and the result is a set of merry and VERY bright tags that practically glow against black tissue wrapped boxes. There’s no doubt that any gift tagged with one of these babies will stand out among the other gifts under the tree. Have I mentioned that I love this glitter?
Holiday Wishes Gift Tag Die Cuts
Die Cutting Machine*
Tsukineko Essential Glue Pad
Martha Stewart Crafts Neon Glitter
Glitter Tray (Recollections brand from Michaels)
Black Tissue Paper
1/8″ White Satin Ribbon
Glue Pen or Marker (optional – for touch ups)
* I still use a Silhouette SD, which is no longer being manufactured as of the release of the Silhouette CAMEO.
1. Using a die-cutting machine (a PDF file is also provided in the tag download for those of you who would like to cut out the tags by hand), cut the gift tags onto white cardstock.
2. Place a tag, right side up, onto a piece of scrap paper and use a glue pad to cover the entire front of the tag with a thin layer of glue. Immediately cover the tag with your choice of glitter (use a piece of paper or a glitter tray to catch the glitter that doesn’t stick to the tag). Tap off any excess glitter, set aside, and allow to dry for at least 15 minutes.
3. Thread ribbon, twine, or string through the tag loop and attach to your package.
