TAG TUESDAY.......ribbons and lace

So I thought it might be a bit fun to offer up a new tag design each Tuesday for my followers and this week I have decided to use amazing products from Canvas Corp to do my little tag!

Shipping size tag
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Verdigris & Bronze
Canvas Corp lace & Kraft paper
pearl button
blue and white bakers twine by Bo Bunny
mini wooden ruler from Hobby Lobby
paper leaves from Hobby Lobby
vintage lace trim
Black Soot ink by Distress Inks
Torn fabric ribbon
Red line tape
glossy accents

begin by lightly misting your tag with your glimmer mist and let dry!
Cut out piece of lace paper to size of your tag and tear top and then ink edges with your black ink.
on back of print paper add red line tape to bottom and two sides leaving 1" at top free of tape. Fold over non taped area to form a flap then adhere the piece to top of tag (this will form a pocket). With red line tape tape down flap. Take your button and pull blue and white twine through holes and adhere to center of flap with Glossy accents.
Spray you mini ruler with your glimmer mist and let dry. Next take your leaves and using your ink lightly ink the edges.
layer on your piece of lace, your mini ruler and leaves to bottom of tag as shown. Finish by pulling strip of fabric through hole as your ribbon tie.
Here is a great little tip, hit the second hand shops to find old evening and prom dresses to cut into strips for the tattered ribbon.

Happy Crafting
