Convention Bag Tags
In case you don’t know, myself and my friend Gwen are off to Convention today! It is so exciting. We have been planning for ever so long and now today is the day! We are leaving in a couple of hours.
One of the very nice things about going to Convention is all the goodies we receive. Stampin’ Up! is a very generous company. This year there are about 700 demonstrators and guests attending and we all get the same bag as a gift when we register. As you can imagine it can be a little hard to keep track of your bag, so I made a tag for myself and Gwen to attach to ours. The tag was inspired by one I had seen on Pinterest by Deborah Smart, I changed it up a little (but not much) to add our initials.
The base of the tag is Real Red Core’dinations card cut using the large Apothecary Framelit Die. Once cut it was embossed using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder and sanded a little to bring out the design. I stamped the image from the Chalk Talk stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Chalk Talk Framelit. I punched a 1-3/4″ Circle from Red Glimmer Paper and attached it to the centre of the stamped tag. I cut the letter “K” and “G” from Silver Glimmer Paper using the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die. The letters are attached to the centre of the Red Glimmer Paper circle. I punched Old Olive card using the Bird Builder Punch to create a couple of sets of leaves and attached them to the tag. I cut the flowers from Real Red Core’dination card using the Spiral Flower Original Die. I sprayed them with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and filled the centre of the flowers with Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details before attaching them to the tag. I used my Crop-A-Dile to add a large Pewter eyelet (retired) to the top of the tag and attached a bag ring.
I attached my tag to a bag I made to take to Convention using some Stampin’ Up! supplies. The frills on this bag are created using the 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon and the straps are made using the Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon.
Bye for now,
