Tuesday’s Tag #7

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: “You’re Sweet”

You will need: white card stock, Pool Party card stock, scraps of coordinating card stock for the chocolate topping/sprinkles, the Stampin’ Up! DSP and stamp/die set is listed below, ink, paper trimmer or cutting tools of choice, tag punch/die, adhesive + foam adhesive,  liquid pearls/rhinestones/pearls, ribbon/twine, Wink of Stella glitter brush. *Optional: powder tool, clear embossing powder, heat tool {you don’t have to heat emboss the images if you don’t want to}. Please noteif a  tag punch/die is not available, it’s just fine to cut out any tag shape by hand.

  1. Please note: you may click on the link below for a PDF of these instructions.
  2. Cut the white card stock to 1 7/8″ x 4 1/2″.
  3. Cut the colored card stock to 2″ x 4 5/8″.
  4. Punch both pieces of card stock with the tag punch. Turn the punch over to be sure the smaller white piece is centered in the punch.
  5. Cut the Designer Series Paper {DSP} to 1 3/4″ x 3″.
  6. Cut the remaining pieces before assembling ~ the cone, waffle cone layer, ice cream scoop, chocolate topping, 2 cherries and the sprinkles.

7.  Stamp the “You’re Sweet” sentiment at the bottom of the top card stock layer. Heat emboss if desired.

8.  Adhere top card stock layer to the bottom layer leaving equal borders on all four sides.

9.  Adhere the DSP about 1/4″ above the stamping.

10. Layer and adhere the waffle cone layer to the cone base. Adhere to the lower section of the DSP as shown.

11. Assemble and adhere the ice cream scoop/toppings as shown. ∗Please note: I die cut a cherry from each red and green. Then cut off the stem of the red one before gluing it to the green one. This way the red cherry has a green stem. Add some foam adhesive to the back. Adhere to the cone.

12. Thread a couple lengths of ribbon through the hole and tie with baker’s twine.
