Springy Tag and Holder



This tag holder and matching tag was so much fun to make, I just LOVE using kraft colored paper on my projects!  Here is what the tag looks like.

Ready for fresh air, sunshine, new leaves, and flowers blooming? Well, the Dream Team is right there with you! Our challenge for the month of March is...coincidentally...Marching into Spring. Per usual, we'd love to have you play along with us, and link your own creations to the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog, or at the bottom of this post. Play as many times as you'd like. Those of you who workDreamweaver and/or Stampendous products into your projects receive bonus points, but everyone has an opportunity to be the winner who receives the stencil of their choice.

Don't you love using recycled objects in your projects?! Not only are you saving the planet but also saving money.  The tag holder is made from a toilet paper roll that was flattened.  I saw the idea to use a toilet paper roll for a tag holder somewhere on pinterest but I don't remember where.  Here is how my project was made.
1.  After flattening the toilet paper roll, use a circle die to cut the top portion of the roll.  Sponge all edges with Vintage Photo ink and staple the bottom of the roll.
2.  Apply Dreamweaver Stencils Crackle Embossing Paste to the center of the holder using a palette knife and let dry.  It will start to crack as it dries.
3.  Once dry, mix Dreamweaver Stencils Embossing Paste with Ranger Leaf Green Archival ink re-inker.  I just put a dab of the paste on my craft mat and squeezed 1-2 drops of re-inker onto it and mixed with my palette knife.

4.  Place Tall Wheat LL3008 stencil over the crackle and hold in place with removable tape and apply the embossing paste with the palette knife. Let Dry.
5.  Glue ribbon to the bottom of the holder with 3 in 1 glue from Beacon Adhesives.
6.  Stamp flowers (I got them from the wedding isle at Michael's and I have enough for a life time!) with Dream Text stamp from Stampendous with Timber Brown Stazon, let dry, glue to holder and add pearls to the centers. You are done with the holder.
7.  To make the tag, cut light kraft paper to 4 1/4" x 2 1/4" and cut the upper corners on the diagonal.
8.  Place stencil diagonally on tag and sponge with gesso, let dry and clean stencil.  
9.  Place stencil on tag and sponge with Peeled Paint ink.  
10.  Stamp Moment Memory by Stampendous, on tag with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
11.  Add flower and May Arts ribbon, you're done!
