I have a quick and easy tag tutorial to share with you today!
Start by saving and printing this vintage pattern.
Cut out the littlest girl and cut out your tag shape.
To give the tag a nice aged, vintage look, I inked it with Vintage Photo Distress ink, blending the ink across the surface using a blending applicator.
I then added stamped measuring strips across the top and bottom. I used the Hero Arts Sew Stylish stamp set. I used a lovely grey ink by Ranger for The Jenni Bowlin line. The inkpads are made much like the Distress Inks and I love the range of vintage colors.
You could also use ribbon for this.
Then I took a paper scrap cut to fit in the center of my tag and ripped the edges to give it a rough look. I inked it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and bent up the edges.
*Note all paper used on this tag are by Graphic 45.
I added a little paper flower in the bottom corner and used a fun button shaped brad by Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby.
I decided to give my tag a more elegant look with some sparkle, so I took a jar of Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls powder which can be found at Michaels and most other Scrapbook stores and sprinkled a little on the tag. Then I spread it across the paper with a brush. Then to set the powder I lightly spritzed the tag with water and dried it with a heat gun.
See how it shimmers? No glue was needed to spread the powder on.
I then added a small strip of paper to the tag and a photo corner.
Next, I took a piece of corrugated cardboard and cut a small rectangle to fit the tag.
I also took a white gel pen and add faux stitch lines around the edge of my paper.
I then added a ribbon bow at the top and pearl pin by Maya Road behind the flower.
To finish add the vintage image!
Tags like this are wonderful to give with gifts or as party favors.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial today!
Wishing you happiness, Lindsey
