Instructions: Using the Album Tag Die, die cut two tags from white cardstock. Die cut the Swirly Accent Spray Die out of white cardstock. Glue the Swirly Accent Die cut between the two tag die cuts. This makes the base tag good and sturdy. Pick a piece of the paper collection and die cut it to fit the front of the tag. Using a sponge and Designer Dries Clear Adhesive add glitter to the Swirly Accent die cut. Set aside to dry.
Stamp the flowers onto the Deluxe Flower Shaping paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Using the coordinating die, cut out the petals. Use Red Geranium ink and the daubers to color. Spritz the petals with water and use the Flower Shaping Kit to shape. I also hand pleated the ends of the petals and set them aside to dry. When dry, glue two petals the same size together, staggering so the flower looks full. Let this dry. Now is the time to spread out the petals. I added a ring of Power Outage Prills and allowed this to dry. I went back in and added the Ribbit Prills to the very center of the flowers. This gives the flowers a bit more interest. Allow this to dry. I used a sponge with glue on the tip and dabbed this onto the flower petals then sprinkle the Crystal Clear over the flowers. Allow this to dry.
Stamp the leaves with Archival Fern Green ink and color using Memento Bamboo Leaves. I went back with the Fern Green to add a bit more color to the edges.
I picked a ticket from the paper collection and die cut it. I added Double Dots to the back of it and glued it to the front of the tag.
Wet a length of the seam binding and color with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink. Scrunch it and allow to dry. Tie a bow and use hot glue to adhere to the front of the tag.
Decide where you want the flowers and leaves and using hot glue, adhere to the tag front. Your tag is finished and becomes a gift on its own.
