Thank you for all the well wishes on my new job!
I love it!
Today we are sharing a patriotic tag tutorial!
I saw this cute little solider on a vintage
boy's birthday card in my stash and thought he looked
patriotic and perfect for a tag!
Start by printing and cutting out this image.
Choose your tag. I am using a #8 size manila tag,
but you can cut one from cardstock or use whatever you prefer.
Cut a piece of patterned paper to fit your tag.
I used a scrap that was slightly smaller than my tag.
Adhere to tag.
(I used paper by Pink Paislee's Declaration line)
Cut a coordinating piece of patterned paper to fit the top
of your tag and tear across the bottom. Adhere to tag.
I used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink around the edges of the
paper and tag to give it a nice vintage look.
I then cut a 2 inch star from white cardstock.
I used a score board to score along the points of the star.
If you don't have a score board, you can most likely
use your paper trimmer as a guide to score.
Now start folding along the score lines
until the star is 3 deminsional.
Tie a piece of ribbon through the top of your tag
and then adhere star to the tag.
Take a fine tip brown marker (i used Walnut Stain
Distress marker) to add faux stitch lines around tag.
Adhere vintage image. I used pop dots
to make him stand out.
Next, I took silver glitter glue and outlined the tag.
Then, I took a sheet of red rhinestones, adhered
them along top and bottom of tag to add some bling!
I then added a small vintage button patterned
circle to the center of the star, to add a little more detail.
Then, I took red, white and blue washi tape,
ripped off a few small pieces and
adhered at random around the tag.
Next, I added a small red paper rose to the tag.
I love making tags and I hope you
enjoyed this little tutorial!
Leave a comment on this post and I will
randomly pick a winner on Tuesday,
July 3rd to win this tag!
Have a wonderful weekend, Lindsey
