25 Days of Christmas Tags - a Shaker Tag!

 
Tracey McNeely does this fabulous gig with tags that, I am ashamed to admit, I have not made a tag for ... until today!!!
 
I was inspired by a gorgeous, sparkly, shaker tag by Suzanne of Simon Says Stamp ... see what I mean:
 
 
I've been playing around with a fabulous New York skyline die from MFT ... no I don't own it, but I have a friend in Jersey who is my supplier!  I have done so many things with it, but today I used the leftovers from this card to make a shaker ... a very flat, mail-able, shiny , full of snowflakes from another sweet friend- shaker tag!
 
My color may be different, and I used gold instead of silver - but the glam?  All there!
 
Just in case you can't see it, it is made from acetate!
 
... and just as beautiful on the back side!  The trick?  Tombow Clear liquid adhesive!!
 

Thank you Tracey, for hosting this fabulous event each year!  I'll be back with another tomorrow ... a bit of a Paper Smooch, hint, hint!

Supplies:  Recollections Winter Frost 6x6" pad; Teresa Collins Studio Gold paper; MFT Hand-lettered Collection. Delicata Gold ink.

I nearly fell off my chair laughing...now, I'm a supplier??? Too funny :) Nevertheless, you have really out-done yourself with this gorgeous tag, Michele! I love that you chose snowflakes for your shaker component, and the Delicata Gold sentiments are so striking! Love your sparkly star, too!

I didn't know Tombow made a clear liquid adhesive...Thanks!
