Awhile ago I received some wooden tags from ARTchix, but I didn’t get around to altering them until now. Sometimes the creative process requires waiting for the right time.
With the holidays season happening, I was inspired to use cheerful words of joy to make the necklaces below using the wooden tags from ARTchix. Unfortunately, they no longer carry this item, but you can find similar ones at Jilly bean Kids (item WD2220, 8 mid-sized wooden tags for $3.99).
The tiny one below is my favorite (you know how much I LOVE tiny things). I haven’t been able to find any more wooden tags this small in size (do any of you know where to buy some?)
Okay, moving on to more tags…here are some metal circle ones. I made these using pendant trays from the Paper Studio. To make, simply adhere your words typed onto paper (I chose to go with sing-songy, happy tunes) to the inside of the pendant and add a smear of glitter glue on top and let dry. Then fill the pendant tray with diamond glaze and let dry.
Here are some rectangle ones that I made using rubber stamps for the words. The photos didn’t come out too well (natural lighting is getting harder and harder to come by as the days grow shorter), but I think you can still get the gist of it.
As the days get colder and darkness becomes more common, I like to fill my mind with thoughts of lightness and delight. When my mind is full of light, my heart is warmed as well.
