MAKE A NAUGHTY CHRISTMAS GNOME TAG THAT WILL GET PEOPLE TALKING!
GOT SOMEONE IN THE FAMILY THAT ALWAYS LIKES TO “PEEK” AT THEIR GIFTS BEFORE IT’S TIME? I KNOW, WE ALL SEEM TO HAVE SOMEONE IN MIND LIKE THAT. ANYWAY, I HAVE GOT THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GNOME TAG TO GO ON A GIFT FOR THAT VERY PERSON! I’VE EVEN INCLUDED THE FREE CUT FILE!
I’ve been asked to participate in a Gnome Celebration again this year! If you missed last year’s festivities, check out my post HERE. What I came up with was pure genius, and hilarious! I really don’t know where I come up with these ideas. They just seem to pop in my head when I least expect them!
I am not a serious person by no means. So I knew it had to be something funny. And it couldn’t be a t-shirt, because I already did that last year. I was thinking of a gnome lantern, but I just wasn’t very enthusiastic about it. Then…all of a sudden (after weeks of mulling over the lantern idea), the Christmas Gnome Tag popped into my crazy head.
I thought, at first, of a “No Peeking” tag because I, too, am one of those people that can’t seem to wait until Christmas to open my presents. As a youngster, I used to scope the house for all the present-hiding spots. I new exactly where to look. I was very good at it!
Anyhoo, I thought that creating a “No Peeking” tag, might deter someone like me from trying to see what the gift was. Well, actually….to be honest, it probably wouldn’t. But for the sake of this crafty creation…we are going to go with that.
Now, what if it was a very funny tag? It had to be. That’s just my personality. And of course, it had to be a gnome because, well, it is a Gnome Celebration after all.
Then I got that certain twinkle in my eye. How about a risque gnome? Oooooo…that sounds real good! When I told some friends that I was going to make a risque gnome, they asked, “How the heck can you make a gnome risque?” Hmmmm….they don’t know me too well (I thought, in my best Elmer Fudd voice in my head)!
I had been watching videos of waterfall cards on Youtube, so I thought about incorporating that into my tag. So off I went to make a prototype.
It took me about a week to figure out the modifications I needed to do so that this tag would work the way I wanted.
I know you are anxious to start the project, so let’s get started…
