Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Love You Tag.
To create my tag, I’ve used new dies from the Paper Flower Collection as well as dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.
Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 Die out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the tag using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Choose two pieces of coordinating patterned paper. Die cut a 2 1/4″ Stitched Circle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut a 1 3/4″ Stitched Circle out of the other patterned paper. Ink the edges of the circles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. Die cut the Love You words from the Words 2 – Thinking of You Die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Four. Die cut one of the branches twice from the Leaves & Branches Die out of Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock.
The next four steps use the Florals 5 Die.
Step Five. Die cut the leaf die three times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Shabby Shutters Distress Ink over the entire surface of the leaves.
Step Six. Die cut the small flower with the hole in the middle twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Seven. Die cut the other small flower three times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Fossilized Amber Distress Ink over the entire surface of the flowers. Shape as desired.
Step Eight. Die cut the extra large flower one, the large flower three times, the medium flower three times and the small flower three times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Worn Lipstick Distress Ink over the entire surface of the flowers. Shape as desired.
Step Nine. For one of the flowers, you’ll want to adhere a extra large, a large, a medium, a small and a yellow small flower together. For the other two flowers, you’ll want to adhere a large, a medium, a small and a yellow small flower together.
Step Ten. Adhere the Love You words to the middle of the 1 3/4″ circle. Adhere the 1 3/4″ circle to the 2 1/4″ circle. Foam square the 2 1/4″ circle 3/4″ from the bottom and 1 1/4″ from the left of the tag.
Step Eleven. Adhere the leaves as desired on the left hand side of the tag by the circles.
Step Twelve. Use foam squares to adhere the flowers overtop of the leaves on the left hand side of the tag as desired.
Step Thirteen. Adhere the two white flowers as desired in amongst the pink flowers.
Step Fourteen. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the hole at the top of the tag.
