DIY New Year 2017 Tag Decoration

Are you exhausted from all the Christmas decorating and shopping? We understand completely! So we're going to make it super easy for you to create a fun but very easy to do New Year's decoration.

You'll need one wooden oversize tag, some scrapbook paper, some Mod Podge Glue and the use of a die-cut machine. We have several Die-Cut Machines available at our store with 100s of dies available for you to use (for free when you use it with materials bought in our store). More details about our Die Cut Center HERE.

Trace your tag on the paper you want to use for your background. You may need two sheets. Cut and glue to the wood tag using Mod Podge as your glue. Apply another coat on top of the paper to seal it. To learn more on how to use Mod Podge, see Bonnie's video here.

Using a die-cut machine, cut the numbers 2, 0, 1, 7. You'll also want to cut 4 circles out of a different paper to create a contrast against the background. To make the circles, you can simply use a glass or bowl to trace circles. Use your favorite glue to adhere the numbers to the circles. You can use Mod Podge again if you wish. When that's dry, glue the circles to your tag overlapping them to create a more dynamic look.

Cut a piece of gold metallic fringe and glue it to the back of the tag. You can also embellish your tag with cut out swirls or any other embellishments that you have in your stash of craft supplies.

Happy New Year Everyone!
