Today I want to show you a tag in an envelope, which I made for my husband's sister's birthday.
While making the tag, I took several pictures and combined them into a simple and short tutorial.
To make this tag, we'll need a sheet of an A4 size paper. The paper has to be pretty dense, because we are going to distress and color it.
First, cut a tag of the following size - 3 1/8 " X 6 1/8 ". Cut the corners as shown:
For the envelope, cut the paper of the following size - 7 1/2 " X 7 ".
Fold the envelope and punch a half circle with the 1 1/2" punch.
With the same punch, make one full circle (as the following pictures show):
With a 1/2" circle punch make 2 tiny circles:
Distress all the parts with the Walnut Ink. I used the "Antuquing Solution" for the tag, and "Terra Cotta" Walnut Ink" for the envelope and the circles:
Apply glue on the borders and assemble the envelope:
Distress the edges of all the parts with the Distress Black Soot Ink:
Fold the big circle (1 1/2") in half and glue it on top of the tag:
Glue the smaller circles on both sides of the tag as shown:
Make a hole with a crop-a-dile tool:
Both the tag and the envelope are ready to be embellished:
The next pictures only show which stamps I used (for those of you who are interested) :)
On the top of the envelope I stamped a swirl with a Versa Mark Ink and a Hero Arts Fabulous Flourish stamp, then I heat-embossed it with the ZING! gold embossing powder:
The rest of the work can be done according to your own taste. I added another little tag, glued some tiny flowers to it, added a lace, a button, etc.
Here's the result. All the process took me about and hour and a half.
Thanks for reading! Come back soon! :)
