This project starts out as a simple manila tag and morphs into an ultra-feminine style textured tag that can be attached to a gift or be used as a card on its own. By layering one technique on top of another and using all kinds of product, this tag has a unique and highly textured appearance. Living a beautiful life can sometimes start with simply making tags and cards that we share with others.

Skill: Beginner

Time: 1 hour

Directions

stenciled tag Memento ink. pink, stencil

Step 1

Take a manila shipping tag (6 ¼” by 3 ¼”) lay it on a craft mat. Place a stencil on top and lightly mist it with Lilac Posies Fireworks! Craft Spray. Set the tag aside and mist the same color onto your choice of paper or fabric flowers and a piece of ribbon. Dry with a heat tool.

Step 2

Stamp the “Thinking of You” phrase on a piece of deli or tissue paper using StazOn Jet Black ink. Cut or tear around the phrase to fit on the tag. Cut a small strip of paper matching the project colors and glue across the middle of the tag. Use a palette knife to adhere the phrase on tissue paper above the decorative paper using Creative Medium Original.

Step 3

Creative Medium can be used to secure the colored flowers on the left-hand side of the tag. The chain at the bottom can be attached to the gel medium by tucking the ends of the chain under the flowers. Tuck the leaves around the flowers in the same fashion. Use the gel medium to attach a metal butterfly onto one of the flowers.

Step 4

Use a glue stick to apply small amounts of glue randomly around the tag, apply gold foil. Use On Point Glue to add additional texture and interest to the flowers. Apply a small amount of On Point Glue to the tips of the flowers and leaves. Sprinkle glitter and glass beads onto the flowers and the butterfly. Tap off the excess.

Step 5

Attach a bow that has been inked to match the project to the top of the tag. Add crystal chain to the bow and adhere three self-adhesive crystal dots to the right side. Finish the highly textured effect with a thin line of Bronze irRESISTible Pico Embellisher to the top and the bottom of the decorative paper panel. Allow to dry.
