Just a quick post to answer a few questions:
1. The stitched background on the base of the Christmas Tag is a background stamp from Stampin' Up! appropriately named "Stitched".
2. I made some more of the Halloween votives and I have to say - that since I made that first one - the TAPE RUNNER works better for attaching the vellum. The MONO liquid glue just made a mess, curled the vellum (actually the heat from my hands curled the vellum too!), and warped the black base!!
3. I will not write a tutorial on how to make the Halloween Votives but I will direct you to Melanie's blog where I first saw this project. Click HERE to see her tutorial. If you decide to make some and post them please credit her.
