November 2021 Hero Arts My Monthly Hero

Hi everybody! Today I'm sharing My Monthly Hero for November 2021! 

November is here and the holiday season is upon us! With our November My Monthly Hero kit, we have everything you need to create adorable handmade tags and/or gift toppers for all of your Christmas gift-giving. The dies in this kit are equally great for cards, scrapbook pages, and even felt ornaments! We've included a stamp set with patterns to decorate the tag pieces, and plenty of holiday-themed messages, too. To round out the kit, we've included cardstock and glitter paper for die cutting your characters. White Puff Embossing Powder is fun for adding some dimensional texture, and our Lacquer Pen adds extra shine. And last but not least, there's festive red & white twine for embellishing, or attaching your tags to gifts.

I'm kickstarting the month's projects with some really fun tags. I've made two but with a little twist. The Santa tag is actually an origami corner bookmark and the snowman is a paperclip bookmark. 
Project 1 Origami Corner Bookmark

  • Die cut the santa pieces: the face, beard, moustache, and hat in Dove White, die cut another hat in HA red. 
  • Color in the little eyes with a black alcohol marker, add accents with a white gel pen. Use Copics to color in the face and nose. 
  • Use puffy embossing powder on the rim, the loop, and ball of your hat. Trim and adhere to your red hat. 
  • Assemble your santa, and add a little twine to complete the look. 
You can stop here if you just want to make a tag. However, I've created a little pictorial step by step if you'd like to make an origami book corner. I've used a 3-inch vellum square but you can use any card and any size as long as it's square.

Origami Steps 9-12
I absolutely love these little tags and felt they were perfect for bookmarks. I'm an avid reader and still have plenty of actual books in the house. 
Project 2 - Altered Paperclip Snowman
I use a LOT of stationery, clips and paperclips for sure! So when I saw these gorgeous little characters I knew I wanted to use one on a paperclip. Now this is another easy make, perfect for us adults, children and anyone who still believes in the magic of Christmas. 
  • Die cut your elements, top hat in black and glitter card, head and holly in Dove White, and scarf in HA Red. 
  • Stamp your polka dot design onto the scarf, and your sentiment on the hat with Unicorn White pigment Ink and allow to dry. 
  • Color in the little nose, eyes and holly with Copics. Add some Nuvo Drops as the berries. 
  • Assemble your glitter pieces onto your black top hat and add a little twine. 
  • Use a small paperclip to add directly to the back of your snowman with some hot glue. 
It's that easy and really is a functional little clip. 

There's so many ways to use these characters, and I've only shown 2. Also in the kit is a reindeer and an elf! 
In the photo above you can see one of the add-on stamps, it's AMAZING!
