Let's make tags!

I love to make tags; they are such fun little pieces of art and a great way to add a little extra zing to your gifts or to say a  great big thank you!  I also use them much like many people use an art journal.  A tag is where I experiment and try new things.  If I don't like it, then I don't have as much time and product invested as I would have on a 12 x 12 layout.

My tag of choice these days is the extra long Prima tag, I find that they are perfect size (8.5" x 3.5") for the tags I like to make.  But, really you can make your own tags from cardstock, you really don't need to purchase tag blanks.

Last weekend I hosted a weekend "crop camp" at my house with 6 of my favorite scrappy sisters!  I always put together a little kit of some sort for us all to play with and this year it was a tag kit with Bo Bunny's new The Avenues 6 x 6 papers.  I made all of these tags with little bits from that paper line.

I stenciled all my tags using Viva Décor Ferro Metallic Effect Paint.  This paint is stiff enough that you can easily mask/stencil with it.  The colors are great and create a stunning effect!

On this first tag I used Ferro Mother of Pearl Champagne for the stenciling and the image is from Gecko Galz.  The birdcage, Flying Unicorn metal adornment and Spellbinders oval frame are all heat embossed with Stampendous Shabby Chic white or pink embossing enamel.  The flower is one of Petaloo's new flowers, Darjeeling Wild Blossoms, oh how I love them!!

I masked this tag with Prima's new mask, Scales, and Ferro Altgold.   I think it has kind of an art deco look.  Again I've used new Petaloo flowers and a frame embossed with Stampendous Shabby Chic white embossing enamel.

This is a tag that I made for one of the gals.  I used a new Crafter's "Workshop mask and Ferro Graphite paste for the masking and the older Prima mask, Crackle.  I used a new stamp from Stampers Anonymous, Ultimate Grunge for the red checkerboard and Viva Décor 3D Stamp Paint.

Be sure to stop by the Flying Unicorn store and check out all the new products!
