During my recent trip to Texas, I was surprised by some gorgeous Christmas Tags on display created by two of the designers at Big Mouth Scrappers! They were sharing with me the tags they created for an upcoming class using Perfect Paints!
Here is the first of twelve tags i will be sharing with you each day! Each one is quick and easy and can be easily adapted using whatever dies or supplies you have around the house! Perfect Paints are easy to use, and apply to just about any surface!
