I don't know about you but I think the world in general is just getting busier.....is it? Or is it just me?
Either way, I'm finding I don't have the time to sit down and create great big projects on a daily basis like I used to :( That makes me sad. But...the good thing is, small projects like these tags still keep my creative juices flowing so I'm already in the zone when a lazy day happens along and I have more time.
Try some of these quick techniques on a smaller piece one of these days - I highly recommend stocking up on several of these little acrylic circles, flowers, and any number of the mini-ornament albums that can be pulled apart and used a page at a time sometimes instead of as an album.
On this acrylic flower "Hello" tag, I painted the back of it, added a circle of patterned paper with a sentiment rub-on, attached the paper with a brad and tied it with fibers. Done.
On this heart shaped "Love ya" tag, I used one page from a heart-shaped mini-ornament album (leaving me 4 more pages for future tags and cards). I used a rub-on, a sentiment printed on my Epson Labelmaker (LW400) and a Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole for my brad to go through the arylic. Tied on a ribbon, and Done.
For this large "Thinking of You" tag, I used 2 acrylic circles, sandwiched a large flower in between them, used a paint marker to highlight the embossed parts on the smaller circle (I ran it through my Big Shot with D'vine Swirls folder), and attached another Labelmaker sentiment with a big fabric brad. Done.
And last, but not least...
On this tag, I used rub-on adhesive to make a pattern which I flocked (yes, just like you can do on paper!!), I sewed around the center circle and outlined the outside edge with paint marker. Then I added, a Labelmaker sentiment stapled right onto the acrylic, HI in adhesive jewels and a pink ribbon at the top. Done, done, done and Done :)
Wouldn't it be cute to tie these around a little gift for someone?? Or better yet, use them as a main embellishment on a full-sized greeting card!
