This is the twentieth project in the “Petal Palette Showcase” which shows you a different project every day for the month of June using only the Petal Palette Stamp Set & Petals & More Thinlits.
This project was inspired by Kaye at papercraftskies.co.uk, I am using the Garden Impressions designer series paper, and the paper you need measures 6″ x 4″ and then I scored along the short edge, 1/2″ and 3 and 1/2″ along the long edge, score at 2. Fold across the short side. the 2 long rectangles that you have scored need to be cut out. Take a wedge out of the flaps so that when you fold it over, the paper sits flush.
Glue to flaps with tombow glue, fold and stick.
On the top of the tag, to make it look like a luggage tag, singly grid paper I have just measured 3 squared and marked it with a pencil, along the top and down the side. use you scissors, cut the corners off between the 2 pencil marks you have just made.
I then used the trio punch to make a hole for my ribbon along the top, between the 2 corners you have just cut out.
For the sentiment, I punched out a 2 and 1/2″ circle in calypso coral and a 2″ circle in whisper white, and I stamped “Life is so much better with you in it” onto the 2″ circle in calypso coral ink.
Stick the circles on top of each other using dimensionals, and then stick it to the front flap of the tag, with another couple of dimensionals.
I added a couple of embellishments from the Best route enamel shapes, to the circle I had stamped onto.
Add the accenting ribbon, I measured 15cms which is a nice length to pull it through itself.
I REALLY HOPE YOU LOVE IT AS MUCH AS I DO!
