Vintage Inspired Tags Prep
Gather various tags in your stash. These three-ply maintenance request tags will be used. They have a wonderful foundation to place stamped images and/or to write a handwritten message.
Embellish the Surface
Using a combination of stamps and stencils with a holiday theme, create a fun mixed media background along with the embellishment shapes for the front of the tags. Then directly stamp on the tags using Archival Jet Black ink for balance and definition. Distress Oxide inks were used to
add color to the images. Once you have the embellishments created and cut out, it’s ready to place on the tags.
Assembling the Tags
Starting with the trees, 3D Foam Squares White Regular were placed on the back of the trees. The 3D Foam Squares Micro White were the perfect size for the small stars and script sentiment. Lastly, 3D Foam Squares White Small were adhered on the back of the birds and 3D Foam Strips for the words.
The Finishing Touches
To complete the tags, thread the twine through the tag openings and splatter each tag with white acrylic paint.
