Christmas Ornament Tag Tutorial

For the Norwegian Magazine ScrappeHuset and their Adventscalendar on the blog I created this Christmas Tag with a mini tutorial. Thank you girls for the honor of sharing my work with you!

For this tag I used an old vintage wooden sheet – I think it was part of a game as it has numbers engraved. I painted the wooden piece partly with acrylic paint and before all paint dried I sprinkled Platinum Utee on top and heated it. I attached a piece of Paper Tissue Tape and a ribbon. Then I stamped on a piece of patterned paper with a star stamp and embossing ink, sprinkled with clear utee, heated the utee and into the hot utee sprinkled soem of the platinum utee and continued heating.

I cut out the stars. I attached Cookies’n Cream and Grand Tetons Glimmer Glam on parts of the wooden plate. then I let some Stiletto Glimmer Glam run down the plate and also on the stars. I attached the ribbon, stars and Prima Rhinestones. For the Prima Resin I sprayed Tattered Angels Cornflower Daze and added some Wicked Glimmer Glaze, then attached the Resin piece and attached the Canvas Corp Twine. I painted the edges of the ornament with black acrylic paint.

Supplies: Vintage wooden sheet, Eco Green Crafts Acrylic Paints, Ranger Platinum and Clear Embossing Powder, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam – Glaze and Chalkboard, Prima Rhinestones – Ribbons and Resin, Danyeela Patterned Paper, Rose Mokka Letter Stickers, Canvas Corp Twine

    I have GOT to get me some UTEE! I keep saying it and yet, I keep putting it off! I’m intimidated, honestly. But to heck with it! I love how you used it here and how it’s kind of reminiscent of encaustic art…without the torches and burned down house (as it would probably be in my case!). Thank you for sharing a quick tutorial on how to use it. I do have one question. You can zap it with a regular heat gun and not really need the Melting Pot right? Thanks again!

      Hi Christina,

      ohhh Utee is soooo amazing- I love it!!! Don’t be intimidated! It is really easy to handle. It just takes a bit longer to melt and that you can do with a normal heating gun. It is thicker so if you use stamped images those shouldn’t be too detailed as Utee when melting starts loosing up the form. Have a gorgeous day nat
