Additional Materials:

Instructions:
  • First, trim and fold Snow paper to create tags.
  • Using the Borders stencils, add dry embossing to your tags. This can be done by sending it through your die cutting machine with the correct stack to create an impression, or by holding your tag and stencil up to a lightsource (on a window or on a lightbox, for example) and creating an impression using an embossing stylus. Emboss either the entire tag or just an edge.
  • For the large flower tag, using scrap paper, "draw" a large flower using ink daubers. Doodle around the flower with a black pen. Trim and add to tag with foam tape.
  • For the oval flower embellishment, die cut or punch an oval. Stamp flowers around the edge of the oval using various ink colors. Mat with cardstock trimmed with decorative edge scissors.
  • For the chevron tag, die cut, punch or trim a flower shape. Add the small flower stamped from Thansk So Much. Stamp leaves from the same set and trim. Add to tag and embellish with a pearl.
  • Use washi tape on the edge of the tags. (Tip: this can hide imperfect folding!)
  • Punch a small hole in the tag and add ribbon.
