Do you love a good tag? This is definitely the time of year to add them to your collection with all the gift giving that goes on.
Everyday, for 12 days in a row, a different Scrapbook News and Review staff member is bringing you a tag to inspire you. It's my turn today, so let's get started...
Step 1: Gather your supplies, including several colors of cardstock cut down to the same width (3 1/8") but of varying lengths, so that the bottom colors will peek out when the shorter pieces are layered on top of them. Mine are cut down in 1/2" incremements.
Step 2: Using scalloped border punch, give one end of each piece of cardstock (including the tag itself) scalloped edges.
Step 3: Layer the pieces so that the shortest piece is on top and glue or tape them together.
Step 4: Sponge some white ink around the edges of the tag, including all the scalloped edges. If you want a cleaner, more even look, complete this step on each piece of cardstock before layering them. So Steps 3 & 4 can be swapped, if necessary.
