Foil Tree Tag and Recipe
I had so much fun working with foil that I had to check out other dies I had and found this tree that I thought would work great on a tag or card. I chose to make a tag so I will be entering this in the Holiday Tagplorations Blog Hop and Linky Party.
The tree was die cut from double stick tape that was placed onto card stock before it was die cut. I used a tree die from Die-Namics of My Favorite Things and it is called Trim the Tree. I also used the Luggage Tag dies from Cutplorations which is a product of Stamplorations. The little gold glitter star which in fact a snowflake die is from CAS-UAL Fridays Fri-Dies division and cut from glitter paper from Stampin' Up! This was added to the top of the tree after the tree was foiled. When the outer coating of the double stick tape was peeled away it revealed a sticky tree cut and that was what I burnished the foil on. This was placed then on the white portion of the tag and at the top I also added the To: an From: which are from a stamp set by Gina K. Designs called Nordic Winter. My tag was finished by adding some punched circles for embellishment from the gold glitter paper and then adding a gold glitter ribbon.
I am also adding this tag to the following:
And, I also thought the tag would look good on a pan of Nut Goodie Bars too. I liked to make these especially around Christmas and I cut them into small bars as they are just like candy. Easy to make too so I will include the recipe for you as well. I am making some of these for the church bake sale.
Nut Goodie Bars
Melt a 12 ounce package of butterscotch chips and a 12 ounce package of chocolate chips together along with a 1/2 cup of margarine or butter and 1 cup of peanut butter.
Grease a 9 x 13 pan or like I did two smaller pans and sprinkle in 1 bag of miniature marshmallows and 1 pound salted peanuts. Pour the melted mixture on the peanuts and marshmallows and mix to coat. Smooth out as much as you can and then refrigerate them until set.
Well, have a wonderful weekend and thanks for all the wonderful visits and comments.
