Tartan Doorhanger Treat

Hello again crafters, 

Here is my second project with the terrific tartan papers as I'm calling them! I was inspired by my US friend Karen to try this style, but after researching YT and watching tutorials, I couldnt quite see the size I was looking for. So, I ended up making up my own sizes and probably amalgamating ideas from several people. I don't know who came up with the original idea so I think it would be unfair of me to name just one of the many tutorials I saw.

These would make  super thank you gifts for Teachers, Hallowe'en, Easter, in fact almost any time or occasion and could be easily personalised with a name, large sentiment, card topper, die......  

Here, I've used a JND poinsettia die and stamped and embossed an overlay with some twigs from my stash. Luckily, I had some poinsettias left over from last year. I tend to batch-make these in various sizes, when I am in the mood, and then they are ready to go for a quick project. 

I am confident that I will be making something similar with different papers very soon and might even be tempted to make a video.

If  anyone would like a free template, please subscribe to my blog, leave me a kind comment below and your email to send the pdf.

Have a go yourself and do try these terrific tartan papers from Craft Consortium.

Keep safe,
