Hey there friends and crafty peeps! I’m so excited to be sharing my first challenge at the Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog.
“Do you love to create tags? I know I do. Not only are they fun to make but they’re also practical. Whether you need to add a sentiment to a gift or label a tasty homemade treat you can count on tags. I also like to add them to card fronts or include them in my home decor. For this challenge create a tag with your own personal style. It can be large or small. Let us know in your post what you’re going to use your tag for so we can be inspired by your creativity. “
I’m working with the beautiful Pink Christmas Collection from Stamperia for this very large and layered tag. I simply pulled out the blue tones and the not holiday specific tag cut aparts and it works great for a vintage style.
There are actually 5 tag shapes here all stacked up with spacers between for added depth and dimension.
I selected these pretty flowers to coordinated with the printed roses on the tag focal image. To help fill in this arrangement I included some Skeleton Leaves die cut from crisp white cardstock and gold accents in the form of filigree charms. There’s gold netting here as well to continue the color pallate and some loopy twine bows.
There’s a simple doily here included to help break up the colorful layers and an additional metal charm. Some of the layers have been distressed for extra texture and detail. A simple bow and bit of twine at the top and this tag is complete.
Now it’s your turn to create a fantastic tag and link up with us at the Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog to play along!
