So here it is - Day 2 of the Halloween tags. And this one comes with a tutorial! Want to see all the tags in one place? Click here. Enjoy and come back tomorrow for another tag!
Supplies - shipping tag, paper pad (this one is Spook Alley from Making Memories), ribbon, adhesive, Making Memories Slice, Glimmer Mist, cropadile, distress ink (spiced marmalade).
Start by gluing the shipping tag to the back side of the paper you would like to use. Cut the tag out.
Using the slice cut out bat shapes using the same patterned paper as the tag. You can use any die cut machine to do this or hand cut them if you are really talented! Cut them at different angles on the paper so that all your bats won't be flying at the same angle!
Adhere only the body of the bats to the tag - I lined my text on the bats up with the text on the paper (the exact words didn't line up) - leave the wings free and push up so they look like they are flying out of the text
Use distress ink to ink the edges of the tag and the wings of the bats - this helps them stand out a bit.
Cut a phrase out of patterned paper - ink the edges and adhere to the bottom of the tag.
Flip the tag over and cut the hole out with a hole punch
I sprayed the whole tag with glimmer mist at the end. I used old lace because it leaves a shimmer without adding color to the tag. I could have done this before adhering the bats but I didn't think of it until after - plus I like how the wetness of the glimmer mist causes the distress ink to bleed a bit. I used the heat tool to dry it
Add some orange ribbon and you are done! If you like my blog be sure to "follow me" with google friend connect - located on the top right side of the screen.
