“Snarky little Christmas tags”
Since I was doing a video in December, I knew that I wanted to do something with a holiday theme. I had originally wanted to create some kind of ornament, but I happened across some art trading cards (ATC) on Pinterest one day that were made from chipboard coasters. I thought they would make some really cute gift tags, so I got to work.
I began by going through all of my scrap papers and pulling out everything that looked like Christmas colors. I collaged, stenciled and doodled all over those coasters. Basically just playing on pieces of cardboard, so nothing precious to fret over. I’m all about art that is easy and stress-free!
I decided to use quotes that were funny and a little snarky. I knew that my girlfriends and family would get a kick out of that. This is such a fun way to share your art and dress up all of your gifts this year.
Wishing you all a warm and wonderful holiday! Enjoy the video.
