DAY ONE of my tag-a-long! I have had a chance to really play this week and the tags you will see will vary in styles....Clean,Vintage,Fabric,Inky....a little of everything!
In the next few days I have My Favorite Things teasers in combination with tags. This first tag is one that I will attach a bag of cookies or goodies for my kids' piano teacher. I went with a fun vintage theme.
I used one of the sentiments from My Favorite Things set "Clearly Sentimental About Teaching" that will be released December 1st! You can click on the photos for a closer view. Here is the "How To":
I first covered my #8 tag with patterned paper (Cosmo Cricket's Boyfriend Collection).
I have this old Heidi book from the second hand store and it has some great vintage illustrations and nice bold text. This book is reserved for tearing out pages and using text :)
I used my "Stacking Stars" Die-namic from MFT directly through my tag. I kept the solid star punch through at the top as it will also serve as a place to thread my ribbon later.
I used the punched out stars from my die and placed them on the opposite corner with some repositional adhesive. I then airbrushed a little G40 to match the green in my illustration.
Here are the little pieces of text I cut out. They are going to mimic a book.
I just stacked them up and then zipped them through my sewing machine to hold in place.
Why waste those cute punched out stars. I decided to staple them with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher to frame my sentiment.
Last little touch....sponged some soot black ink around the edges.
