Fabric Tags

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. 

I then added a ribbon and this sentiment from ESN20 using WOW embossing powder in Brass Sparkle. 

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.
