Best Witches Gift Tags

Hi Everyone! 

I have a fun set of tag to share with you today- using our Creative Cafe' -Best Witches kit!

To create these cute tags I first cut all my base tags from Black cardstock using the small tag Bigz die from Tim Holtz. I also used the cute little bread ticket tag that comes with this die, to stamp my sentiment for each tag. 

Here are all the dies and punches used to create the pieces for all of my tags.

Layers are the order of the day - each circle base backed with a doily diecut from Spellbinders, to frame in my cute elements from the Best Witches stampset included in the kit.
 To begin-I cut 3 tags using my Tim Holtz tag die - and than to change it up a bit I used my 2 1/2" circle punch to curve the bottom edge.  To cut the semi curve of the circle, I worked the upper half of my tag through the back of the punch leaving only the bottom edge under the cut blade of the punch. 
See in my photo below. 
The end result is a nice curved edge - to my tag. Circle dies, tracing from a glass can also achieve this effect.
I repeated this for each tag and adhered the black lace trim from the kit along each tag edge with Scrap Happy Glue.  
Using my Spellbinder die- I cut another layer from the patterned paper for 2 of the tags. The 3rd tag I just cut and created a fishtail for the bottom edge.
 Here's a view of my first 'best Witches' tag where I used the fish tail the middle layer. Another strip of the striped patterned paper cut at a width of 1/2" added yet another layer. I stamped background on my white circle with 2 rows the star stamp and stamped the witch hat using black Memento- Lux ink and than dragged a plastic knife through to create pattern before stamping, fussy cutting it out and popping it up with dimensional adhesives.  This than was backed with my doily cut.

The 2nd tag 'have a Wicked!" I used the caldron and witch feet from the stampset.  For some added whimsey - I inverted the feet so it looked like the Witch fell into her own brew! LOL!
This is layered with an additional circle of patterned paper, and the diecut label offers ribbon tracks to weave your trim through.  I used paper for this - and cut fish tails on each end.  This time when I inked the caldron - again using the Memento -Lux in Black I rolled my stamp so I would not get complete coverage.  You can see the lower LH side of the caldron looks a bit worn!

My final Boo! tag, is featuring our friendly ghost! This time instead of a white circle I stamped on black and used my Unicorn White ink pad.  I did the same technique dragging the plastic knife edge through before stamping my image - and created the lines you see here.
This time I wove washi tape through the ribbon tread, by putting to layers together, and cutting fish tail ends.  The washi tape is also included in your kit!
All of three of the tags were finished off with the orange rope dazzling trim- and goose bumps and black pearls all provided in the kit to add some more fun and interest to my tags.
Here's another look
