Summer Stories Tag Embellishment with Stacy Rodriguez

Good morning everyone, Stacy here with you on this fabulous Friday!  I going to share a tag with you that I created using Summer Stories.  I LOVE to make tags because you can use them on so many things.  They are perfect to tie on any gift bag, add to a layout, slip them in a mini album with some journaling or photos on them.....the possibilities are endless!  If you think about it, it is kind of like making your own embellishment!

Here is what my finished tag looks like.

So to start this tag I took a Ranger manila tag #8 and simply cut the pattern paper to the size of the tag.  I placed the paper on the tag with my pink Teresa Collins Xyron Mega Runner.  I took a different pattern paper from the collection and cut it a little smaller then placed that in the center of the tag.  That is pretty much the base of the tag, and now it's just time for the fun part and make it your own by embellishing it.

So on the photo above you see the bottom of the tag.  I used the super fun camera decorative tape and wrapped it around the sides and then embellished above the tape with some enamel dots, buttons and chipboard stickers.  Toward the top of that photo you see that I cut a small boarder piece and placed that across what is the center of the tag.  I love the little bingo cards from the pattern paper and placed that there.  I added one of the brads and some flowers also.

At the top of the tag I placed a chipboard banner piece and some enamel dots.  Punched a hole in the top and tied some pretty May Arts ribbon through the top.

This is a fun way to use up your scrap pieces of paper while creating your own one embellishment for any project.

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful day!
