Tag, you're it!

I just love working with tags! If you create a few you are never short on a special something to add that wow factor to any gift. Simply wrap a bottle of wine or even flavoured oil in brown paper, add the tag and you're ready to go:) - easy as that!

This tag is one of my designs for my carding class, very easy, but very effective technique.

Y Add a border punch to tag bottom to create visual interest.

Y Ink tag.

Y Use a doilie as a mask to spray glimmer mist for background. (If you don't have glimmer mist use the age old paint and paintbrush technique!!)

Y Cut two birdcages (one in brown, one in music print) and cover just the birdie with music print.

Y Ink birdie and wing in contrasting colour. (I used French Blue Cats Eye)

Y Peep birdie and wing out from under birdcage and attach to tag.

Y Add sequins and seed bead to bottom of birdcage for some sparkle (add a bead eye if you like!).

Y Add two colour co-ordinating beads to wax string (any string will do:) and add to birdcage loop.

Add to your gift or your stash (you can even add it to a LO!!) and Voila...easy and stunning!!

Happy scrappin'
