Newsflash: gold is trending. Second newsflash: water is wet.

I’ve always been a lover of gold. Gold glitter. Gold jewelry. Gold paint. Gold everything. Now I have a new obsession. Liquid gilding…in gold. If it weren’t for the slightly pungent smell of this stuff, I would probably paint myself with it…but I can’t image it’d  be good for my skin.

In the meantime, I’ll be here, making gilded gift tags. I have a feeling that by the end of this blog post, you’ll be doing the same.

I must tell you, these gilding liquids are incredibly easy to use and they leave an awesome, authentic metallic gold finish on your projects! I’m pretty much in love with it in a major way. True story.

These tags are a great addition to gift bags and I made these using my Martha Stewart scoring board along with the pretty patterned papers in the 12 x 12 Neutrals Paper Pad.

  1. Oooh! Very nice. I’ve got to give this a try. Who wouldn’t want one of those fun gift bags & tags. Thanks for the fun inspiration.

  2. Amber, you are so funny! You always make me chuckle with your funny comments. I love these! I will be going to Michael’s to get my clay kit and liquid guilding. One question, do you have instructions on the gift bags you created with your score board?
