Welcome to today’s blog post using the gorgeous Two Souls range. I created a set of tags to be used as a quick wedding card instead of making a card.
I find that tags as my go to card these days – quick and easy to make and I don’t feel so bad when people just throw them away.
The paper pad, Collectables pack and this gorgeous tag topper die was simply perfect to create these tags with.
Its delicate details make for an exquisite element that can turn any piece of paper into a work of art.
Step 1 – From the 6×6 paper pad pull some papers that you want to use as your background for your tags.
Trim the papers into 2 x tags measuring 3×6” (7.5x15cm) and cut 2 x pieces measuring 2 ¾”x3 ¾” (7×9.5cm) using your trimmer.
Step 2 – Papers from the paper pad were used to die-cut the decorative edges using DD635 and your DIY Cuts machine.
Step 3 – Adhere the die-cuts to the back of the pieces measuring 2 ¾”x3 ¾” (7×9.5cm) using double sided tape.
Trim off any overlapping pieces of paper and tape for a nice clean finish.
Step 4 – Select some elements from your Collectables pack as well as from the Paper pad to use on your tags.
Step 5 – Ink the edges of your elements using white chalk ink to hide any cutting lines and to give a nice finish.
Step 6 – Start assembling your tags using all the elements gathered.
Layer elements using foam tape, add some rolled up thread for interest and finish off your tags with some diamante for a nice clean and elegant look.
Tie ribbon or bakers’ twine to the tags.
Step 7 – The Tag Topper die-cut used in different ways on your tags add interest.
Beautiful detail on this die-cut edge.
For this tag I cut the tag topper out using 2 different pieces of paper from my paper pad.
Adding interest with a dark bottom edge and a light variegated top edge.
Layered elements on a tag add interest and a beautiful finish.
