Catherine Pooler, Featured, Tags and Gifts

Towering Blooms Tag Duo

Hello! Yes, I’m back to share another project using this month’s Catherine Pooler Designs release. If you’d like to start at the beginning of this mini series, start HERE. Now, let me show you how I created this tag set…

Step 1: Die Cutting

Since I already made a couple cards, I decided to go with a couple tags this time. I used a tag die set to create two tags in white and two in vellum. I attached them together slightly off-set with a zigzag stitch. If you don’t want to sew here, you can simply use a vellum adhesive or leave them separate as they will stay together once the eyelet and twine are added at the end.

Step 2: Ink Blending

I used yellow ink and a foam blending tool to create a yellow to white ombre effect across the tag. (I also inked up a couple of hole reinforcements that were cut with the tag die set, but they wandered off my desk by the time it came to use them. Ha!)

Step 3: Splatter

Splatter was added to the tags with a white pigment ink as well as a bit of sparkly ink then set aside to dry for a few minutes.

Step 4: Set & Stick

Since the inked hole reinforcements disappeared on me, I grabbed a couple of white eyelets and set them into place. I also added the sentiment strips, and topped off the tag with a couple of blooms using foam strips for extra dimension. A bit of white twine was added for the finishing touch.

Okay, that’s three projects down, and there’s still one more to go! How did you like this set of tags? Do you typically make tags? I’d love to know.
