Just for fun 44

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, May 5, 2010 @ 9:00 AM | , ,

Hi Everyone! Half way through the week already - sigh... I had some "me" time this morning so I thought I would have some fun & play along with 2 challenges :) The City Crafter Challenge Blog is now on it's 3rd challenge already & this week's challenge is to create a Terrific tag.

Here's my Terrific tag: I love making tags! It such a fantastic way to utilize scraps that I just don't have the heart to throw away because you just never know when you need just a wee bit! Drives my hubby nuts!!! :)

For sketch inspiration I played along with Laura's awesome sketch from 2Sketches4You.

This lil' tag was so easy to make. All I did was cut out the butterfly image, distress the edges then adhere it to a tag that was cut using a Spellbinders™ Nestabilities S5-019 Labels Eight die template, punch a hole & loop a piece of twine through.

A tag can easily take the place of a greeting card or dress up a plain bag - giving it the "wow" factor :) Would love to know if you ever adventure beyond a card & create tags? Thanks for looking!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Sweethearts

Paper: graphic 45, K&Company, Papertrey Ink

Ink: Ranger Vintage Photo, Memento Tuxedo Black

Other: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities S5-019 Labels Eight, S5-006 Curved Rectangles, S4-189 Labels Three, W-001 The Wizard, Melissa Frances Vintage findings, pearl, ribbon, lace, brad & button from stash

Hi Mona !! lovely tag. I really like the smaller tag with the butterfly. I've only tried very plain tags so far never one with so many grat details. I'd love to give it a go someday :)
