Polka Dot to Dot Sledding Tag

It's always amazing to me how the things we use in projects - evolve from one to the next!  In the fall, I cut out dozens and dozens of flowers from wrapping paper to use in a project.  Around the flowers were various colored polka dots.  As I was doing this while I sat in my chair at night - I decided... why not cut out the polka dots too!!!  Alas... now I had them for this tag project.  Also from my stash, I had three little left over red balls that I added! 

The tag was hot pink. I added the various colored wrapping paper polka dots with glitter modge podge. 

The next layer was a piece of white lace which I added with mat gel right over the top of the polka dots!  

Now the tricky part... adding the white netting!  I decided to gather it up like a bow and tie the center tightly together.  Then I hot glued the tied center to the tag.  The little person on the sled was easy to glue on between the two tails of the white netting!  It was a die cut to which I added some embossed blue glitter bling.

It needed a bit more bling so I added the little red balls and a few white crochet lace flowers. Although they are flowers, they reminded me of snow on the ground!!!  White organza for the attaching ribbon seemed to match the wispy look too.

That's my polka dot adventure! 
Hope your new year is off to a fantastic start! Joi@RR
