Magazine tree display for gift tags.

I've heard crafter's say they can only do one project at a time...not me, I have 3 to 5 tags laying on my desk that I'm working on...pulling out different elements and embellishments and then get distracted by another idea. 

Here is a magazine I folded, over 200 pages plus advertisements...3 time per page...using a bone folder to get crisp creases...easy mindless repetitions.  

Spray painted gold... then glittered... using spray adhesive...left to dry for several hours.


 When I brought it in on my desk...this brilliant idea presented itself...a perfect display to feature my gift card tags.

I am totally amazed when I lose all track of time and  the results produced... come together like a great plan. What do you think? Do you have angels guiding you? I'm  pretty sure I do.

Placed on a gold charger this displays over 18 gift card tags (or more) in a space just 12"round. I'm delighted. I sure hope they sell. Perhaps a lazy Susan would help viewing them in the round.

Thanks for visiting. I'd love to know what you have to say, so please do leave a comment, I promise to return the favor.

Be well ~ Carole


  1. Oh My...I remember doing that years ago and you have rejuvenated it. Wonderful! Yup, that's you, doing several things at once.

  2. Hi Carole, this is great - love it! I'm the same, several projects on the go..probably why I can never find anything on my desk, lol Carole Z xx

  3. Hi Carole. Your folded Christmas tree is beautiful in all it's golden glory ... but it has a dual purpose and a great way to display your tags! Great job! Loll xx

  4. Well, I get distracted doing just one thing at a time, as you know, so I'm mega impressed that you can multi-task! Your tree is magnificent, Carole!! It would be a wonderful table top decoration when it's not being used to display tags at the sales!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Fab idea! Love folding book pages I find it a very meditative calming activity. I use one of my folded books to hold the Christmas cards I receive. Hugs
