If you're looking for my Papercraft Star Challenge #55 post for today, please go here, and I have a for fun card posted here also.
It's my turn again this week to bring a tutorial for the Kraft Journal readers so I have taken a step by step look at creating a special little holiday tag.
For the first step I used a Mini Kraft Merchandise Bag and sliced off the fringy top at at angle. I then used a decorative edge punch along the cut edge to create a cute tag pocket. Since the bags are so thin, make sure you really squeeze your punch hard or you might even try adding an extra layer of plain paper to add a little thickness for punching.
Grungy Prim Tags fit perfectly in these little bags. I trimmed a small amount off of the bottom for my project.
Buff French "Carte Postale" Postcard Shipping Tag, I used some gel medium to add torn pieces of Vintage Dictionary page to the tag.
First I added the punched pocket and tag. I tied some Red Bakers Twine around the pocket. Next came the little bear image that I matted on some Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock. On it's left, I tucked a little lace under the edge and glued on a Christmas Epoxy Brad which I broke the prongs off of. The ticket was printed on my computer using a digi that my sweet friend Dana has for free on her blog here. I just added the sentiment in Photoshop, printed it out in red onto some Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock, trimmed it, and used a ticket corner punch on the ends. I added a piece of Twill Tying Tape through the postcard tag hole and last, but not least, some punched holly leaves complete with berry pearls that I colored with a Copic marker to match. All the pieces were edged with Vintage Photo and Walnut Distress Stain inks.
