Each year I make tags for the flowers I give to our little dancer friends
at Jazz Tappin' Dance Academy's annual recital.
Every year they are a different design with a different quote.
This year I decided to put some of the misting techniques Cheryl taught
me to good use. I didn't even think of doing a tutorial
for these until I had already done a few of the steps.
Here I was when I decided pictures of each step would be helpful:
At this point, I had already misted the Tim Holtz manilla tags with Tattered Angels Patina and Pink Poodle and embossed them with Couture Creation's Cultivated Embossing Folder. I had
cut the corregated cardboard with PaperTrey Ink's dress form die and then stamped them with Just Rite's Shabby Music Background Stamp using Ranger's Archivial Ink. I had also distressed the doilies and the tags with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
Next I had to figure out how to align the quote on the little circles.I printed the quotes on a piece of paper. I lightly adhered my pre-cut circles over the printed quotes and ran the paper through the printer again.
Nothing was glued down at this point, so
I pulled out my handy dandy Helmar adhesives.
450 Quick Dry Adhesive was used for the ribbons/tulle on each of the tags. I used Gemstone Glue on the tags that have rhinestones. To finish the tags, I used Liquid Scrap Dots to attach the embellished dress forms onto the tags. I found that placing the Liquid Scrap Dots on the dress form was easier for this project.
These are two of my favorite tags from this year's recital...
Linking my tags up for ScrapFit's misting challenge.
...and if the music is good, you dance.
