Christmas Tea Party Tag Ornaments

Happy Saturday, everyone! Connie here to share some festive holiday ornaments I made using the GSL Stagger Tags Small.
I used the smallest of the tags, it's 2.5 by 3.5 inches. The paper I selected is DCWV Winter Basics. I used the tag as a pattern for tracing. 
I cut paper for both the front and back from the same collection and used a hole punch to add the hole for attaching ribbon later. 
Once the papers were adhered to the tag using tacky glue, I sanded the edges with a fine grit sanding block and inked them with galaxy gold Brilliance pad. 
I wanted to fill the tiny porcelain cup I used so mixed up a small portion of Ice Resin that was colored using a tiny bit of burnt sienna oil paint. 
I made Christmas cookies by cutting small squares of beige polymer clay, baking them for a few minutes, browning the edges with chalk pastel and painting white acrylic 'frosting' on top.  To fancy them up, I printed small images of edible wafer paper cookie transfers and glued those in place. I actually made these exact cookies in real life a few years back with a friend!
I painted a GSL Snowflake Shape Set Mini with white acrylic paint to sit underneath the tiny plate of holiday cookies. 
The final touches include a napkin made from scrap of fabric tied in ribbon with a mini candy cane tucked inside and a plate of polymer clay sugar cubes and lemon cane slices. 
Since this turned out so cute, I made another.
And then a Harry Potter themed one. 
 Thanks for stopping by!
