why didn't I come up with that??? So I may not have thought of the idea but I am definitely going to use it - I have already come up with 5 goals for the year - and I am working on cute little tags - that I can hang up in my scrap room (on my inspiration board). Maybe having something cute to look at will help me achieve them. The first goal is pretty simple - learn how to work my sewing machine and then actually use it to make something - perhaps something that I can then sell in my etsy shop? (oh yeah I'm working on an etsy shop - look for that in the next few weeks!) And FYI I know I used the word "use" too many times on the tag but I already printed the words and I was too lazy to fix it - plus I'm the only one who is going to see it - you know - besides all of you.... hmmm...
Want to know how I made this cute little tag? Well you are in luck! I have a tutorial for you:
Start with a pattern - vintage or new I don't think it really matters - I got mine for a quarter at a thrift store.
Apply mod podge to the the tag (over the whole thing). Adhere the pattern pieces to the tag - overlapping them as you go and adding more mod podge as necessary.
Once you have the whole tag covered apply mod podge over the top to seal it
I used my basic grey rub on tool to push out the air bubbles and flatten it out.
Once the tag is dry (I used a heat tool) trim the excess off.
Get out your fancy new silhouette - oh yeah did I forget to mention - I got a SILHOUETTE for Christmas!! Yes I have the best husband ever! Use your machine to cut out a cute little shape.
Once you are done cutting an image layer it on to the tag. I also layered a scalloped circle. And there you have it! I am totally loving the way the background looks and plan to use it in a bunch of upcoming projects. Check back tomorrow and I should have more of my "goal" tags up and posted!
