Tim Holtz tag 1

 For the 5th year Tim Holtz is posting 
12 tags for Christmas on his blog.
Sharing his creativity and lots of tutorials.
Many people follow this and try to create a tag à la Tim.

I love to give it a go to and due to the fact that I am Jewish and
not celebrating Christmas some of my tags will be for  
(more info you find HERE).

So let's start with tag #1.
All Tim's info you can find HERE.

You will find a video tutorial on how to make these flowers.
I did not have the same die that Tim has used, but more
of a spiral. So I gave little cuts on the ouside to make
the petals. I sprayed the flowers with glimmermist 
and added a pearl in the heart.

The sentiment I used is by Create with TLC and I
first printed it on the same paper as i made the tag from.
Than I cut it and put it on top of the banner die to
get this wonderful shape. Some broken china
and ice spruce added to fit the color to the tag.
 Added some beads to the ribbon
for embellishment. They are from my stash.
 In the middle I used a sizzix top note die and made 
an irisfolding dreidle. I have the template for you HERE 
and if you have never done any  irisfolding, I have a
tutorial for you on my blog HERE.

Now I am ready to start making tag #2!

 Have a creative day!
