Printing and Coloring
I started this project by sizing the images so they would fit the Hellow Bluebird Stitched Tag Builder die. Then, I printed them out onto Neenah Solar White card stock and used my Copic markers to color them. These are the colors I used:
Giraffe: E43, E42, E41, E40, E37, E33, R00
Zebra: C01, C0, C00, R00, C7, C5
Hippo: W1, W0, W00, R00
I cut them out with my Brother ScanNCut, set them aside, and started working on the tags.
Cutting Out The Tags
This tag die set contains one solid tag die and multiple frames you can use on top to create windows. I cut out six tag shapes with the solid die and then arranged the frame piece onto three of them to create the tag fronts. I used a stitched rectangle for two, and for one, I used the oval. Next, I added acetate and foam tape to the back of each window, filled it with sequins, confetti, and seed beads, and closed them up with the other two solid tags.
Arranging Images & Finishing Tags
Once the tags were closed, I arranged the images on top, and once I was happy with the placement, I glued everything into place. Finally, I finished the tags by adding some twine through holes in the top.
I had a lot of fun making these tags! I left the front of the tags empty with no sentiment, and I plan to stamp a “to and from” on the back when I am ready to put them on a gift. Here is another tag project I did using the same tag builder die from Hello Bluebird.
