Gift Tags

 About a month ago I was shopping at Michaels and bought the Martha Stewart glue pad for stamping. I have been dying to give it a whirl, so today I tried it out on some gift tags.  I was actually quite happy with it, but admit I was a little nervous on the first stamp because you can't really see if you got all the adhesive off the stamp. I am excited to try it out on some of my other Christmas stamps.
The ornament gift tags were stamped with ink.  Then I put a big drop of glue on one of the ornaments. I wanted the glitter to pop out and give it a dimensional look.
I applied my glitter and then gently shook off the extra.  You don't want to shake to hard otherwise the glue drop will move and become oblong.  The snowflake gift tag was where I stamped with my glue pad and then applied glitter and shook off extra. When they were all dry I added the bakers twine.
