Guiseppa Gubler

I love this time of the year when I can make hand crafted gifts.  Tags... we all love them and need them to put on gifts.  So, I made this tag gift set...perfect for a little Christmas gift.  What did I use to create this fabulous tag gift set?  Why Authentique and Helmar for course!  

Here is what I did and I used the Peaceful and Festive Collections.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the box holding the tags as well as some of the tags.  Hope you liked my project!  Thanks Helmar!

Supplies Used:
Festive Collection: Merry #FES006, Believe #FES003, Yuletide #FES005 and Jolly #FES007
Peaceful Collection: Freeze #PEA001 and Chill #PEA004
Wonder Collection: Excerpts #DW0006

Loes de Groot

Hello! Loes here to show you some christmas cards and what you can do with the zapdots from Helmar.

 Peel off the sticky from the top of the zap dots but let them sit on the sheet. Pour some embossing powder on the sheet and use your heat gun. This gives you extra dimension on your cards or lay-outs.

 Here can you see the effect of the embossing powder on the dots,
I added letters from the details sticker sheet. 
The Merry & bright I also got from the sticker sheet.

You can use the dots also as the center of flowers as well.

I love the dimension that these dots add to my projects!
