Over on the PaperArtsy blog this week there is a challenge topic of Fabric. This can be scary for some, and others just don't like sewing, or don't have a sewing machine. So I put together these little tags using fabric but no sewing.
I started by die cutting some tags, and then did cutting a shape in the centre. I did several, all different shapes. I also cut a piece of fabric for each tag the same size as the overall large tag. All the shaped dies that I used are from PaperArtsy. (Hearts, leaves,bird)
I glued the fabric to the back of the large tags so that it shows through the die cut shape... and basically that's it.. All that is left is to add a little embellishment.
This was a white tag, I painted it with Fresco Lilac, then edged the tag using Crayola Twistables.(available from PaperArtsy)
As this tag is black card I needed the edge to have a bit of shimmer, so I blended some Treasure Gold around the edges.
This one on Kraft card just needed twine and a little ink around the edges, and the sentiment from EKD02.
The painted tag had a little lace added and the sentiment from ELB28,
To cover the edges of the fabric on the back I added a skinny frame of card and glued that on.
If you fancy a go with fabric but no sewing then try these out, they are really,really easy.
