2012 ATCs: January 2nd

January 2nd is my sister's birthday. She loves pink and glitter, so I tried to make this tag suit her.

I used a ruffled piece of white crepe paper, a little pinched piece of silver tinsel, and a tag I adhered some chunky pink glitter to, to embellish the pink and white birthday candle. We all think it looks like the candle is wearing a tutu! Pink glitter number stickers from Making Memories note her age.

I journalled a bit on sticky notes (Hampton Arts) on the back of the tag. I trimmed a small piece of tissue paper I used to wrap one of her gifts in, pleated it, and adhered under a journalling strip (Authentique die cut) on the back side. 

We always have a special dinner and dessert at home made by my mom for our birthdays, and it is always fun reminiscing about who chose what for their birthday meal in future years.
