#G45Tag: Nutcracker Sweet DCE Shaker Tag

By Tanya Cloete


“Hello, dear G45ers! I am happy to share my #G45Tag featuring the stunning Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet Deluxe Collector’s Edition.

I fussy cut a lot of images from this amazing collection and added a shaker element to this Large Tag.



I have a video tutorial to show how you can recreate this project.

Tip for the bow:

Create two bows in one (make sure the trim is long enough) – make the first bow and tie a knot, then make the second bow from the same piece, this will ensure that when making the second bow the first bow doesn’t get pulled out of proportion.




Thanks for stopping by!”
