Did you all save your scraps????? Cause the tag I made for today, is made out of scraps mostly.
Here's a little peek in the creative process!
I faux-stapled the first word and glued it down in place. Then I took one of the stamps that came in the Main Kit and stamped it, using Peeled Paint Distress PAINT, at the bottom part of the little flip up card. (Do I still make sense?)
**** Faux Stapling **** By this I mean, that I stapled the little word strip, but not to the front of my card. Just the word strip itself. I did not wanted to see the staple at the inside cover of my card, cause it would be in the way, for what I had in mind!
I added the rest of my word strips and placed some pearls. For the bow: I took some sheer ribbon, plus the cord that came in the kit, shaped them into a bow and tied them together using some thread. Then glued it (hot glue) at my tag.
On the top part (backside of the front) I took another sentiment card that came in the kit, and glued it pocket wise, to the inside cover. This pocket can be used for a gift card or photo's or just for a sweet note to the reciever. (This is why I did faux stapling) I added some lace and pearls for the finishing touch.
I hope you like it and give it a shot! When you do, please share it with us.November 27, 2013 at 8:40 pm #224883November 27, 2013 at 8:49 pm #224884

How clever you are! To be honest, I usually don't save scraps this size. Thanks for reminding me that they can be used to make such a gorgeously designed tag, Paulien.November 27, 2013 at 11:05 pm #224885
Ooooh this is just fabulous Paulien! I save all those little bits and pieces and this is a fantastic way of using them.
