Little Birdie Mixed Media Paste – Jowilna’s 101

I love creating quick and easy tags for the Festive Season and this year I am loving the gold and black theme inspired by the gorgeous First Noel range from Kaisercraft. I created this tag using some mixed media elements in shades of gold.

  • Step 1

    Mix some Gold Delicata reinker into Mixed Media Paste to create a gold paste and apply it through a tree stencil directly onto your tag using a palette knife.

  • Step 2

    While the paste is still wet lightly sprinkle with gold glitter. Shake off the excess and let the paste dry.

  • Step 3

    Once the paste is dry, use gold Brilliance ink and Copper Delicata ink with a jumbo dauber to ink around the edges of your tag. This gives a beautiful shimmering finish to your tag and takes away that ugly manilla colouring.

  • Step 4

    Use foam tape to adhere a selection of elements from the Collectables pack to your tag.

  • Step 5

    Add some gold diamante to finish off your tag and add some dimension to the paper die-cut element.


I use a wax crayon to pick up my diamante. Add a small drop of Tombow to your tag, then lift the diamond with the wax crayon and carefully place it down onto your drop of glue. No mess and no fuss trying to get glue onto something so small.
  • Step 6

    Colour a piece of ribbon using gold Delicata ink and some walnut ink crystals. Tie the ribbon into a bow once its dry and there you have a gorgeous tag for gift giving this festive season.
