Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my I Love You Tag.
To create my tag, I’ve used dies from the Paper Flower Collection as well as dies from the Planner Essentials Collection and stamps from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.
Step One. Choose a piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book. From the Planner Essentials 30 – Wave Pocket Die, you’ll need the medium tag. Die cut the tag out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the tag using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Die cut the 2 1/2″ Stitched Circle from the Pizza Box die out of a piece of kraft cardstock. From the Build Your Own Sentiments Stamp Set, you’ll need the heart and I love You. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink the I love you sentiment and stamp on the right hand side of the circle as desired. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the heart and stamp below the I love you sentiment. Ink the edges of the circle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. From the Florals 10 die, you’ll need the large, medium and small flowers. Die cut the large flower once, the medium flower three times and the small flower three times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Wilted Violet Distress Ink over the entire surface of each flower.
Step Four. Die cut both leaves three times each out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Mowed Lawn Distress Ink over the entire surface of each leaf. Shape the leaves as desired.
Step Five. Die cut one of the ferns from the Ferns die twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of both ferns. Trim the ferns down to your desired length.
Step Six. Foam square the circle 3/4″ from the left and 5/8″ from the bottom of the tag.
Step Seven. Adhere a fern and two leaves in the top left side of the tag. Adhere two leaves in the middle left side of the tag. Adhere the remaining fern and two leaves in bottom left side of the tag.
Step Eight. Adhere a small and medium flower together. Repeat this step for a second flower. Adhere the remaining flowers together. Add a black enamel dot in the middle of each flower. Adhere the two medium/small flowers to the bottom left and top left sides of the circle. Adhere the large flower in amongst the other two flowers as desired.
Step Nine. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the top of the tag.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my I Love You Tag at home.
