Hi all, Vicki-Ann here today and I have been having some fun making some vintage style mini tags. I have an awesome tag punch that I thought needed some use. It is a fun way to use up some of my scrap papers.
What you will need...
- Helmar Premium Craft Glue
- Helmar liquid scrap dots
- Tag punch, mine is a Creative Memories one
- Hole reinforcements or my punch is from We R Memory Keepers
- Book paper
- Coffee stained card stock
- Writing card stock
- Distress ink and blending tool
- Fussy cut butterflies
- Cheese cloth
- Bulb clip and charms
Now I have all my pieces ready it is time to get the Helmar Premium Craft Glue out. This glue is terrific. It glues everything down so well, dries so quickly but gives you enough time to move it or straighten it without leaving a mess of too much glue. It does not buckle the paper and if you get it some in a place you do not want it. You can just gently rub it and it will come off. I would have to say it is my favourite.
I distressed the edges of the book paper that I cut to fit the tag and tore some of the writing paper. Then using the Helmar Premium Craft Glue and the card stock distressed tag. I added my layers. First the book paper then the torn written paper. Then the cheese cloth layer on top of that.
I popped my focal image of the fussycut butterfly on top of the cheese cloth. I thought the tiny piece of cheesecloth just gave it a bit more added texture.Under a couple of the butterflies, to give them a bit of added dimension. I added a little blob (technical term) of Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. I used some of the Helmar premium craft glue to add my hole reinforcement.
Then I added a bulb clip through the hole and attached a bee and a scissor charm.
These are a great tiny addition to planners and travelers notebooks. Add them in pockets or attach with a brad. Or even just as a little gift to add a smile to someone’s day.
