Vintage Celebration Tag Tutorial

Hello friends!
I have a tag tutorial to share with you today!
A fun and simple tag to create in minutes!

Start by pulling out your paper scraps!
We all have them, right?
 It's so hard to throw away all those little pieces
 that you know could be good for a small project!
My stash is a mix of October Afternoon papers.
 Mostly from the 5 and Dime collection.

I picked out this star pattern and grabbed a manila tag.
You can also cut a tag from cardstock to measure 3 x 6.

Cut out this cute vintage cat image.

I adhered my main background pattern to the tag and
 inked around the edges with Speckled Egg and Malted Milk Dye ink.

I then cut a small pink checkered paper scrap and adhered to the bottom half of the tag.
Then, I cut a few small circles from scraps and inked the edges with brown ink.
I then adhered them to the tag randomly.

I added small details to the tag such as adding faux stitch lines around the circles,
I also add some stamping to the tag such as the word, Celebration,
small stars and a small pink banner at the top corner.
I then added a small pink scallop border to the bottom of the tag
 and tied a pink bow to the top of the tag.

I adhered the vintage image to the center to complete the tag!

I love quick and easy little projects like this that don't take much time or supplies!
Hope you enjoyed!

Have a wonderful day, Lindsey
