Step 1: Die cut the largest tag from the Sizzix Framelits Tim Holtz tag collection, using a red piece of card from the Sizzix Surfacez Festive Cardstock pack in your Sizzix Big Shot Machine.
Step 2: Using the smallest heart from the Sizzix Framelits Love Hearts die set (you can also use this die set for the Valentine's Card), die cut three hearts along the edge of the tag so that only about two thirds of the heart is die cut into the tag.
Step 3: Attach a piece of adhesive sheet to the back of a piece of gold opulent cardstock and use it die cut the ‘forever’ sentiment’ from the Sizzix Love Hearts die set.
Step 4: Peel the layer of adhesive sheet from the back of the die cut sentiment and adhere it to the front of the tag, vertically.
Step 5: Attach a piece of adhesive sheet to the front of a piece of pink festive cardstock and die cut another tag using the card and the same tag die you used in step one.
Step 6: Remove the layer of adhesive sheet from the die cut tag and cover it with Sizzix Sorbet Glitter, using a Sizzix Embossing Powder Funnel Tray to collect the excess.
Step 7: Apply foam tape to the back of the red tag
Step 8: Adhere the red tag to the top of the glitter tag, making sure to line them up perfectly.
Step 9: Tie some string or ribbon to the tag.
