Watch this video https://youtu.be/rdsIOVMXjIQ to learn how to use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape die cuts.

Instructions: Cut two 6" x 3" panels from a mini print in the paper collection. (One for each tag.) Distress the edges. Adhere to brown background paper with foam dots. Trim with a small border and distress the edges. Adhere to red and yellow background paper. Trim a small border on three sides, then cut the top into a tag shape by removing the two top corners. Distress the edges. Punch a hole into the top of each tag and thread a double loop of twine through and knot. Tie two of the 4 ends into a bow.

Stamp the palm tree (twice), hammock monkey, bananas, floral branch (x three) and trio monkey images onto card stock. Die cut the images, except the trio image which will need to be fussy cut. Shape all pieces with a stylus. Colour with pencils and use a blending pencil to blend. Fussy cut 9 of the pre-printed leaves and shape. From the second palm tree, cut away the leaves from the trunk, then cut the leaves into two sections. Cut the flowers into individual sections and shape with a stylus.

For the red tag, adhere the monkey image to the middle of the tag with a triple layer of foam dots. Tuck pre-cut leaves into the top and bottom corners of the image, with the half palm tree fronds over the top. Adhere the flowers over the leaves and add Heart of Gold Prills to the centres. Cut a sentiment tag from patterned paper and distress the edges. Adhere to the top right of the tag. Wrap twine around the bottom part of the tag and finish with a bow. Apply gold glitter with a fine metal glue tip to the leaves and petals. Add some random paint dots among the foliage.

For the yellow tag, Adhere the palm tree down the left side of the tag with pre-printed leaves tucked under the base. Adhere the monkey image on an angle attached to the tree. Adhere flower sections to either end of the hammock. Cut a sentiment tag from patterned paper and distress the edges. Add a longer flower section to the top right of the tag with pre-printed leaves tucked underneath. Hang two banana images from the flowers. Apply gold glitter with a fine metal glue tip to the leaves and petals.
