Tuesday’s Tag #2

Hi everyone!

Welcome to “Tuesday’s Tag”!  These posts feature how to create different styles of tags that can be used for the usual purpose ~ gifts. But tags can also be added to scrapbook layouts, cards, albums and journals. I hope that you will join me and enjoy creating some tags 🙂  I alternate Tuesday’s Tip,  Technique Tuesday and Tuesday’s Tag just to change things up a bit.

Today’s tag: Appreciation

You will need: card stock, paper trimmer or cutting tools of choice, SU Chalk Talk Framelits Dies, stamps, ink, adhesive, liquid pearls/rhinestones/pearls, ribbon/twine. *Optional: powder tool, clear embossing powder, heat tool {you don’t have to heat emboss the images if you don’t want to}. Please note: do not feel that it is neccesary to use the SU Chalk Talk Framelits Dies used in this example. Any tag shape can be cut with punches, dies, a Cricut or by hand. And any stamp set can be used. I am just showing you the way I created this tag.

  1. Please note: you may click on the link underneath the picture below for a PDF of these instructions.
  2. Start with a piece of cardstock that you know will be big enough for the tag you are creating. Please note: It’s up to you how you do the tag ~ you can cut it out first and then do the stamping. Or stamp first and then cut it out {this is how I did mine}.
  3. The stamped image is clear heat embossed and then the tag is lightly sponged around the edges with matching ink.
  4. A stem of leaves and some punched flowers are added to the bottom with glue dots.
  5. Each flower gets a coat of Wink of Stella glitter brush and a small white flower center.
  6. Tie a bow and attach a threaded button to the center before adhering to the tag.
  7. I added this tag to a card front with foam pop dots.
