Thanks to some awesome ladies who played along with last month's Layout Love Linky, I have some happy mail to send! But, no happy mail is complete without some tag action, right? Let's have some fun and get our craft on for these ladies!
It might be fun to make all of these at the same time. Here they are, taped together on the back:First, some stenciling to make a little resist:
After some white acrylic paint...pretty!
Remember this? The layout that suddenly took a turn for the worse? The rejected background has been sitting on my craft table all this time and now I think we should make use of it...
Some hearts from the sizzix seem like a great solution!
Ah yes, remember the recent button embossing extravaganza? I have some left over that need a home!
With those fun little elements at hand, let's jazz up those tags and put that resist to work:
Ooooh, I like it!
Time for some glitter. Gloss medium acts as my glue:
Using more of the gloss medium, those buttons get added:
I think each of these lovely ladies deserves a personalized tag. First, initials are drawn and cut out:
Then, some scraps are assembled, cut and stitched...
And now we have a perfect foundation for those little letters:
A little love gets added with the hearts:
A bit of smash tape is added for some contrast:
And now, they get cut apart. I love the idea that each tag is part of a greater whole. So, if all of these ladies somehow end up in the same place with all of their tags, they will fit back together. LOL!
Initials added with twine:
And here they are...all in a row...
Ready to be sent in their happy mail packages!
Ladies, I hope you enjoy and thanks again for being a part of the Purple Mailbox!
Still wondering what's to become of the rainbow embossed buttons? Stay tuned....
