Tags, Tags, TAGS!!


Hey Krafters!

Today over at Practical Scrappers it is all about tags! Tags are so versatile! They can be used for journaling, add a little something to a background or do what I love to do, ALTER them!! Before I go on to the project, stop by Practical Scrappers to see how our talented design team used tags! You are in for a treat!

My husband works in a factory and from time to time, he will have a shipping tag. On the tag, there was some writing. I used white Gesso to cover up the shipping verbiage. Once the Gesso was dried, I used Distress Stains, sprays and inks and stamps for the background.  I fussy cut the image from G45’s A Ladies Diary. I also used a gardenia from Stamping Scrapping. I added three layers of lace and two rows of pearls.

I could have added more flowers and charms. However, I really wanted to keep this project simple and not over embellished.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!  Don’t forget to pop over to Practical Scrappers! Thank you so much for stopping by, Krafthead~

    I've been meaning to ask you what type of adhesive do you use for your lace and strands. TFS!

    1. Thank you Treva! For lace I usually use hot glue, but for pearls, I found using hot glue on the ends (to hold the strand in place) and glossy accents in the middle makes it more secure. HTH
