Hey! Hey! I’m here today to share this cute tag trio tutorial using the new “Summer Nights” collection from Catherine Pooler Designs! If you’d like to see how I started this collection mini series, check out the first one HERE.
Here’s how I created this today’s project…
Step 1: Die Cuting
Step 2: Ink Blending
To jazz up the tag bases, I used several shades of ink and a foam blending tool to create an ombre background on each tag.
Step 3: Splatter
Step 4: Layout & Layering
Once the tags were dry, I selected a few gold embossed moth images I had left over from my first project, and I began to play around with the layout for each tag. I ended up punching out 2″ circles of vellum for each tag and also die cut a second set of tags with the leftover patterned paper.
Step 5: Embellishments
Once I was satisfied with the layout for each, I attached the tag sets to one another with eyelets then secured the vellum circle with a dot of liquid glue. A bit of foam adhesive was placed behind each moth followed by a nest of gold thread before securing over the vellum. Finally, a few matching sequins were added as well as tassels and ribbon.
And that’s it! Do you like making tags? What kind of gift would you attach these to?
Until next time… stay crafty!
