Hands up if you have too much art and crafting stuff? I have two hands up! LOL. Today I (rockmelon recycled) want to show you a quick project that can help use up some of your craft stash; those bits and pieces such as ribbons, lace, buttons and washi combine to make a fabulous tag booklet.
Collage Papers: Vintage Collage Papers
Paintbrush and Dylusions Paint: Bubble gum pink, vibrant turquoise
Mod podge , sticky tape
Stuff from stash such as:
Ribbon, twine, lace, fabric bits
Paper flowers, buttons, blingy bits, paper clips, bradlets, stickers
Words cut from magazines
Black and white pens for doodling
Watch the tutorial below:
Tape tags together with sticky tape leaving a little space so it will bend into an accordian booklet.
Mod podge pieces of vintage books as a background, randomly tearing and pasting, don’t think about it too much. Don’t forget to do both sides of your tag booklet.
Paint some of the edges of the tags using paints, (fingers work best and makes the finish more natural).
Use background vintage papers, washi tape and paint to cover the sticky tape joins.
Adhere ephemera die cuts (aren’t they just gorgeous!).
Tie ribbon, lace, string through the top of the tags.
Cut our random words from magazines and books that seem to go together.
Stamp or write word quotes. Doodle in empty spaces.
Add pieces of embellishments from stash until the tags feel full.
Give it to someone who needs to feel a little loved (that could be you).
And don’t let you inner critic tell you that you can’t create, go right ahead, it will be silenced when you begin to create. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
