October Diva Dare - Day 12

Hi Verve fans!  It's Julee here, wrapping up the final day of our Tag You're It October Diva Dare.  This month's dare is tags (make a tag, use a tag on a card, be inspired by a tag, etc.)!  Here's how I answered the dare: 



I just love tags and have a drawer in my studio where I'm always collecting different tags that inspire me, thinking I'll add them to a mixed-media project here or there.  So when I saw these Boys Rock tags on some sweet little fuzzy hoodies my boys just got, I knew they were destined for my craft room!  


I decided it would be super fun to make a little tag shaped card and hang it from a goody bag.  I used a tag I had laying around as a template for my tag, then made a folded card base 1/8" bigger all around for the card.  The brushed silver cardstock is embossed with a robot from Birthday Bots and then I took the Boys Rock clothing tags, trimmed one end with pennant ends and adhered to my tag card with dimensionals.  The to/from is stamped using the new Holiday Treats set and I cut them out with pinking circles nestabilities and hand wrote my boys' names.  The little cards are finished off with some Metal Mix Sequins on the robot tummies.


Next I decorated some treat bags using all the gear stamps from Geared Up and then made a hanger for each using Laurie Willison's Decorative Card Hanger Die and then added a bit of pewter liquid pearls for a studded look to match.

Supply List
Stamps: Birthday Bots, Geared Up, Holiday Treats (Verve Stamps)
Paper: brushed silver, basic black (SU!), white lunch sack, clothing tags
Ink: black, pewter (Mix'd Media Inx)

  11. These are amazing. Love how you up-cycled those cute tags. Love how all that sweet Verveness comes together to make these cute goodie bags. TFS.
    I have a photo op suggestion...
    Dress your cuties in their new little hoodies, have them hold the goodie bags and snap a memory that will last a life time.
