World Card Making Day was so much fun. I watched a ton of inspirational videos on YouTube and created a number of cards also. My kiddos have a birthday party to attend in a few weeks. The party has a pirate theme and is for a brother and sister. Each one of my kiddos made one card and they decided to make a tag with the left over images.
Extra Details: We began these tags with the left over tags from the Simon Says Stamp September 2017 Monthly Card Kit. I die cut a larger stitched circle around the existing shapes. I ink blended some brown ink on each tag front and added some wood grain stamping with the same ink. I added a sentiment to the back of the tag at this point also.
We also had some images left over from the Pirate Birthday Cards, we had just finished. We used these on the tags, so everything will coordinate.
I ink blended some light blue ink on the inside of the tags to create a sky. I added two layers of blue card stock cut with a scalloped border die to look like waves. We added a ship on the inside of each tag as well. I adhered some clear plastic over the window of each tag. We layered some foam tape on the inside of the card to create a shaker pocket. We added some light blue and clear sequins and closed the tags up.
My kiddos played with the placement of the rest of the images on the front and back of the tags. I adhered everything with liquid glue and set the tags aside to dry.
Lastly, I added some red and white twine through the holes. Now the tags are ready to tie on the gift bags.
