Tag It with The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog

Hi everyone and welcome. Teri is hosting the latest challenge over on The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog and she's called it 'Tag It'; "Now is the time to be sure you have enough holiday gift tags. Show us your best festive holiday tag!"

The Design Team will choose their top four picks, with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog and three additional outstanding entries will receive Top 3 Badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

For this challenge I chose to make three large tags (they measure 8"x 4") which are needed for three large candy jar gifts this Christmas.

After dry brushing layers of Gilt, Turquoise, Sky and White Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paints onto the tags (both front and back) and machine stitching around the edges I applied paste through the Prima Finnabair 'Book of Numbers' stencil.

To make the trees I used the small pieces of balsa wood that are often included as stretchers when you buy canvases, cutting them to make the tree shapes before painting them with Evergreen, Peacock and Sedona Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paints.

The garland stripes across the middle come from a stamp in the Dina Wakley Media 'Not Subtle' stamp set and was applied with coordinating Archival Inks; these included Wendy Vecchi's Night Sky and Mulberry as well as Library Green.

Once the decorated wood pieces were glued in place on the tags I added some large Mirrored Stars for a touch of sparkle.

That's my take on the 'Tag It' theme. For even more inspiration the rest of the Design Team have come up with their own projects for this challenge so make sure you hop on over and check them out HERE.

For now, thanks for visiting,


  1. These are so effective and fabulous! Love the punch of color from the tree pieces!

  3. As always, you do such beautiful work! Great tags with wonderful textural, stitched backgrounds and an unexpected twist of those brightly colored wooden trees. Very cheerful!
