Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Smile Tag.
To create my Smile Tag, I’ve used a couple of the dies from the new Paper Flower Collection as well as a die from the Planner Essentials Collection, Joset Designs and Els van de Burgt Studio. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.
Step One. Die cut the small tag from the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 4 – Tag & Toppers die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the tag using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Choose a piece of patterned paper from the Worn Wood Paper Pack. Die cut a 2″ Stitched Rectangle out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. You’ll need the small fitted circle and the small stitched circle from the Pizza Box die. Flip the patterned paper over that you just used and die cut the small stitched circle out of it. Die cut the small fitted circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the two circle using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. From the Ginkgo die, you’ll need two of the single ginkgo leaves and the ginkgo leaves bunch out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Mowed Lawn Distress Ink over the entire surface of all of the leaves.
Step Five. From the Words 2 – Thinking of You die, die cut the Smile word out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Ground Espresso Distress Ink over the entire surface of the word.
Step Six. Adhere the stitched rectangle to the tag.
Step Seven. Adhere the fitted circle to the stitched circle. Use foam squares on the left hand side of the stitched circle and adhere 1/2″ from the bottom and 5/8″ from the left of the tag.
Step Eight. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the ginkgo leaves around the circles on the tag as desired.
Step Nine. Adhere the smile word to the circle as desired.
Step Ten. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the hole at the top of the tag.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Smile Tag.
