A Birthday Tag

January 17, 2012

I made this tag to go on the present that I wrapped for my daughter Sarah.  I took my inspiration from the colours and design in the wrapping paper.

I cut my tag shape from Whisper White card stock and embossed it using the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder.  I trimmed the corners at the top of the tag and then cut matting layers from So Saffron and Garden Green cardstock.  I punched two 1-3/4″ Scallop Circles from Whisper White card stock and two 2 3/8″ Scallop Circles from So Saffron card stock.  I used my Bone Folder to distress the Scallop Circles until I could separate each one into two layers.  I sponged So Saffron ink onto the Whisper White Scallop Circles.  I scrunched each one into a small tight ball and then opened each one out again.  I stacked them onto a Vintage Brad and scrunched each layer up around the brad and then opened them out again.  I punched 3 Large Ovals from Garden Green cardstock.  I folded them in half and then ran them through the Crimper.  I used my paper snips to trim one end into a shaper point.  I used Mini Glue Dots to attach the leaves and flower to the tag.  I punched a 1-3/4″ Circle from Garden Green card stock and folded it in half.  I attached the Garden Green circle to the top of the tag.  I ran Linen Thread through a Daffodil Button from the Brights Designer Buttons, tied a knot and attached it to the top of the tag using a Mini Glue Dot.

I enjoyed making this tag.  It can be fun turning them into real works of art.

Bye for now, Kris.
