Artful Days - Tag

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today I am sharing with you my first design team project using contents from my Artful Days goodie box.

If you would like to see what you get in your goodie box for this month then you can watch my YouTube video.  July's theme is Vintage Family.

My first project is a tag and I have created a step by step tutorial.

The tag measures 21.5 cm x 9 cm and I have added a double layer of lace to the bottom.

I tore a piece of the dictionary paper and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Aged Mahogany Distress Ink Pen

I next cut down one of the Tim Holtz Found Relatives card and attached at an angle.

I then cut out the chair from one of the Prima Vintage Emphorium note cards, distressed the edges with distress pen in aged mahogany.

Using my PVA glue with fine nib attached the die cut word cherish.

Created 3 flowers with large and small paper flowers and added pearl gems to the centres.

To finish off, I  used the string and curling ribbon from the packaging the goodies came in to thread through the hole at the top and curled the ribbon with my scissors.

This is the first of four projects and I still have enough left over for a couple more projects.
Great value for money!

Thank you for visiting today!
