Gift making.....Christmas is on the Horizen......55 days

Have you started thinking about Christmas yet???  It is just 55 days away.......I  made a fun gift set using a new product:

 I used Safmat to print out an image I colored and applied it to this jar.

Here is another view- I added the puppy to all four sides of the jar (I bought the jar at Target).

This is the tag I made to match the set. I used Twinkling H2O's for the background- a Technique Junkies technique.

 I want to explain how I did this- and have listed the M5D DT samples below my pictures.

First, I picked and printed out an image to use.  This is Christmas Puppy with Stocking and it is a digital image- you could use a stamped image as well. The image, the sentiment ( Merry Christmas Sentiment buttons)  and the Safmat is available at McMahon Five Designs.

Next, color your image and scan it in to your computer- then save it to a file.  I used vibrant colors and printed the puppy out a number of times on the Safmat for my project. 

The puppy is on the thin adhesive sheet I am pulling up- just for the photo.  You simply print the image on a sheet of Safmat and cut it out:
  Once the image is printed out, trim around the edges (therefore, you can print the images really closely together ). You can also print out sentiments and use words like rub-ons. 

There are video's with the full info on the release at the McMahon Five Designs store in the tutorial section.  Best thing about it- you can order just one sheet or 10.....(while you are there, check out the Cryogen White cardstock for Copic coloring- it really is fabulous for coloring- and it has a beautiful shimmer to it)!

This is what the package of Safmat looks like:
It is a Self-Adhesive Film that you can run through your printer.

Safmat retails for a package of 10 sheets for $10.70 OR we are offering it by the sheet for $1.50 each.

Below are creative, inspiring samples 
using it with Digital Stamps 
along with a Video Tutorial!


*Note: The image on the coffee bean jar was not showing up well in the photograph so I slipped the backing paper into the jar just for photography purposes.

ACK, now I was absolutely possitive that I had commented on your gorgeous Christmas jar and tag... maybe it was on DT blog? ANyways, you did a fantastic job on this!! Love the Safmat, especially now that I know how to figure out which side is right and which side is... NOT! LOL. I didn't know that li'l trick! Love that you added that circle sentiment on top of the jar--I totally forgot about those cute li'l guys! *Ü*
