Hello friends! Today I am sharing another tag tutorial with you!
I started by taking this beautiful sheet of Scrapbook paper and cutting out 2 of the little girls and the Birthday line below it. This paper is by October Afternoon from their new Fly a Kite line.
I am using a mailing tag for this but you can make your own tag using cardstock cut to 3 x 6.
I then inked the tag with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a blending tool which has a piece of foam on the end for blending the inks to create a soft look.
I also added a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give it a more vintage look.
I also took 3 scraps of paper from one of my favorite lines called Nook and Pantry by Basic Grey. You can piece together whatever leftovers you might have to create a different look. I glued two of my scraps together to create the right size for my tag and punched along the bottom with a Fiskars Apron Lace punch. You can also use pinking shears or tear the edge. I then inked the edge with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I glued the 3 scraps to the tag.
I then took a light yellow mini ric rac and glued it across the overlaped edges of the scraps.
I then took my new Embroidered Floral Martha Stewart edge punch and punched across another scrap measuring around 2 x 4.
I then tore the edges and small sections of the scrap. I inked the torn edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
I also added a little cupcake to the bottom corner made from a Martha Stewart punch and paper from the Nook and Pantry line. Use foam adhesive or pop dots to adhere the scrap and cupcake to add more deminsion.
I then inked and lightly colored the image of the girls and inked the Birthday piece with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I took another scrap and cut the edges at a slant to create a banner piece and adhere it to the tag with foam adhesive or pop dots. Then add ribbon to the tag and that's it!
A great way to use up your scraps and make something cute too!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
Have a crafty day, Lindsey
