Nathalie: And then this is called K wax and this is the---- no, no that’s the die. It goes as well; I don’t know what’s going on. You just put one drop in there now, I have also seen let’s go with two drops again. I have seen people say that you could use food coloring in this and I would recommend not doing that because---- Miranda: You get the set of whole of that. Nathalie: Yeah, I got it the same place. That I was online so I would recommend that you gotten food coloring because you know what I think we need just a little bit more oil. What do you think? Miranda: The oil? Nathalie: Yeah, what do you think? Because it can stain I mean if you put it, how about a little bit more of that. Miranda: The color? Nathalie: Yeah. Miranda: So you’re making fun with for putting some of that. Nathalie: Sorry I don’t know, I don’t know. What do you think pretty good? Well I’m sweating all over to play. This is like a great neighbor gift, your teacher gifts and something that you can just whip up or like you know you always have look like unexpected gas over the holiday’s maybe you want to give them. Your hair dresser and let’s put that one. We actually color coordinated with our mat today. Miranda: Not that big. Nathalie: Alright so we are just going to do a tiny but a clean up here and then we can our-- Miranda: Christmas tag? Nathalie: Our tags and using our ordinary tag cartridge. Our next step is to cut the gift tag for our little gifts, a little body scrub and we are going to be using the very merry tag of cartridge, it’s a brand new solution of cartridge. So I have a two of our new SCI paper line and beautiful foil, flocking all kinds of cool stuffs. Miranda: You can’t tell on camera or on our website really how all of the SCI papers have like some metallic there are a lot of different texture but SCI paper that you don’t you never going to really fully appreciate until you see in person. Nathalie: Right. So, we are going to cut out a couple of tags here some is going to load on my mat and you can see I’ve got two different tag of going because obviously they don’t go together. So we are going to cut out a tag for a green scab and a tag for out mocha chocolate scab. So, this is the Christmas mint paper by SCI and we are going to be cutting out our little tag that has the present on it. So this is my overlay paper and I’m going to be cutting out the overlay of the gift which is in the upper right hand corner. And I’m going to be cutting out at a height of three inches so I’m going to hit cut. I’m going to aero down and cut out my next part of the tag which is the behind part. So I have the overlay and then the behind part which I’m cutting from rod and I want it be three inches again and I’m going to hit cut. Alright now, I am going to use instead of like scrolling all around and use this handy top that rubbing my pink stumper that mint which is flying return. And then I’m just going to hedges down to my next paper. Okay, now for the mocha body scrub I’m going to do a different tag which is the two from, so I am going to cut this shape out of the paper that is first paper. And I am using again the three inch shape. Okay, then I am going to scroll down and I need to cut out the backing for that which is the shape that’s right here on your keypad so I have that and cut that out. Put that on motor mat and we will take our shapes off over cricket mat. Miranda you are going to show everybody what we come out? Miranda: Here is our two boom tag the backing and the front and I’m just going to glue those together and this is going to go on to our chocolate scrub and then this one is the gift tag that goes onto our green scrub this is the overlay. Nathalie: Cute. Miranda: Same thing we are just going to glue this together, I’m going to use one of our zed pins, this are great for doing little details like on this in from you have a little pin like this is going to fit perfectly on your leathers. Nathalie: Now, before we’re done I’m going to cut a couple more shapes and I am going to use this SCI paper that’s on the same Juliet Collection and I am going to be cutting out a couple of snowflakes in different sizes. So, the pink is going to be the front part and then I am going to use the gray for the back part. Miranda: Perfect. Another thing I leave about this glue is I’m sure you can see it’s glue and that was we mentioned this before but so it’s really easy to tell exactly where you getting blue and it dry clear. And you don’t worry about that getting on your project. And then we are going to piece this together and now I’m going to let that set for just a minute and glue this other side together. We have of actually a lot of varieties of this glue on our website. They come in all different sizes of pens, marker style really fun I’m going to use. Nathalie: Okay and I have those shapes already cut out from that SCI paper from our very merry tag they’ve got the back snowflake and the front snowflake and then just a little bit of a larger size and we’re going to string this on some fiber here and run it around the top of that. I’ll do the top and Miranda and you give that one. Miranda: So cute. The really nice thing about this containers is that they’re plastic so you don’t have to worry about them being in the shower and dropping glass or---- Nathalie: Good link. Miranda: Yeah. And then that’s basically where we are not that grating the top of the jar because people are---- if you are give this and keep it in the shower you don’t want them to have you know a paper tap that’s bubbling upon them. Nathalie: How did you turn out Miranda? Miranda: What do you think? Nathalie: Cute. Miranda: Didn’t do a fancy bow or nothing like I do. Nathalie: Oh you did the time in the front right by the text. Yeah I did the time at the back see? Well I just show you there are many different ways. Can I barrow your finger? Miranda: Yes ma’am. Nathalie: To do---- Thanks to that finger. Miranda: Yes. Nathalie: Okay good. Miranda: And then I’m just going to trim. Nathalie: And then with this pink and brown it’s not your typical Christmas colors but still it definitely---- Miranda: Well on that we have a lot about---- a lot of questions about paper selection and you just have to think wintery instead of cost messy so that’s would be a good gift for your celebrating Hanaka or something else around the holidays that there are choose come all set to give this someone. We hope that you enjoy, this is great economical gift ideas using very merry tag. That’s cool body scrub. Thanks for sharing me Nathalie to had and make some scrub. Nathalie: Yeah you’re welcome.
