Hi.. super excited today to share my Fab Scraps blog post with you using C86 Mother Nature Collection. Be sure to visit the store for this collection and the many others available. They are all amazing with fabulous mix of papers, stencils and accents.
FOR THIS TAG YOU WILL NEED:
Paper: C86 Mother Nature Collection
Ink: Tim Holtz mini pad
Stencil: The Crafters Workshop
Die: Memory Box
Others: flowers, leaves, ribbons, beads, cardstock, twine
STEP #1: Making tags are fun and easy. They are small and that allows you to use stash from collections after you done making the big products first. Up first then is to pull lots of scraps that coordinate, cardstock and lots of options for accents.
STEP #2: As per above photo I pulled lots of papers... cut the cardstock base roughly 3" x 6" standard size and using the prints I cut pieces, die cut an accent, punched a border and made some matted pennants.
STEP #3: I punched the corner of this tag base on the upper corners only. Ink all the edges, ink through stencil on the upper right corner. The Post Card piece is fussy cut from the print paper.
STEP #4: We can assemble the layers now matting some for extra colours, layers and shapes. By doing this process first it allows us to wrap twine around the whole piece.
STEP #5: Now we put together the back piece .... adding the die cut honey combs, inked stenciling and on the lower edge the floral punched border.
STEP #6: Now put the 3 layers together using a tilt position.
STEP #7: Assemble the 2 clusters of flowers with leaves and the bigger one I wrapped the stems with ribbon and tied off with a bow. Position the clusters and glue down.
STEP #8: Punch the circular hole.... tie off with coordinating ribbons and a stand of beads.
Thanks for joining me today.
