Tag Swap - October
Linda. I actually did this as a make n' take ornament for Island Scrapbooking's Anniversary Party last weekend, but thought it would look nice as tag as well. For the background, I used Spellbinder's new lace circle die and silver mirror cardstock. Then I punched out a 3" circle from seafoam green cardstock. I stamped a Hero Arts snowflake on white cardstock using Ranger Distress Stormy Sky ink and punched it out with a 2" circle punch. To make the fan fold, I used 2 pieces of DP cut to 12" x 1-1/4" and scored every 1/2". Then I folded the paper on the score lines like an accordion. I attached the pieces together with double sided tape so I had a continuous circle. The hardest part is keeping the center flat and together so I used a hot glue gun because the glue drives fast. After putting the hot glue on the center of the accordion piece, I adhered the 2" snowflake circle on top. I put some hot glue in the center of the 3" circle and placed the accordion piece on that. Then I taped the ribbon to the back of the 3" circle and used double stick tape to adhere it to the silver piece. I love the way these sort of took on a vintage look!
