Happy Spring Tag

Hello! Dawn Rene here today to share a cute tag I made with The Rubber Cafe's April Creative Cafe Kit of the Month. It is bright and cheerful - it just makes me smile!

Here is a picture of the tag...

Here are the steps I went through to create the tag.

I cut a piece of the orange cardstock in the kit to 6" x 3" and trimmed off the top corners to make the base of the tag. On a separate piece of orange cardstock, I took various sized pieces that I ripped from patterned paper in the kit and randomly glued them on the orange cardstock with Scrap Happy Glue.

I cut out the tag shape from the patterned paper collage sheet I just made - 1/4" smaller than the base of the tag. I attached the patterned paper to the base, punched a hole in the top, and added an eyelet to re-enforce the hole.

I stamped butterflies from the kit with pink, orange and green colored CTMH inks. Then I colored in the butterflies with a yellow Copics marker. I stamped the "Happy Spring" sentiment from the kit with green ink.

I cut out all the pieces and adhered them with Scrap Happy Glue. Strings of the flower garland were tucked under the sentiment so they dangle from the bottom of the tag. The blue bling dots were added as accents. Blue and yellow ribbon from the kit were tied to the top with some white fiber.
