Tag: Dreamer of Dreams


I’m participating in a tag swap at; this month’s theme is “Very Valentine”. While I don’t seem to have any dedicated Valentine’s Day paper, I do have a beautifully romantic collection from Lemon Craft. Here’ what I came up with:

I did some prep work before constructing the actual tag. First, I created a few clay cherubs using modeling compound and some molds that I’ve had for several years. I also started work on a shaker piece, painting the chipboard elements and adhering an acetate circle to the underside of the main piece.

I made a tag from a piece of packaging to use as my base, cut two pieces of the House of Roses sheet to fit, inked the edges and glued them to the front and back. The top layers were created by cutting two pieces from the Sweet Secrets sheet ¼” smaller top to bottom and side to side, inking the edges and gluing them down.

I die cut a few vines from white cardstock and glued only a few small leaves down once I knew where I wanted to place them.

I placed the bottom piece of my shaker on the tag and marked the vine pieces that lay inside. After trimming those pieces, I assembled the shaker by adhering the bottom to the tag, adding the sequins and micro beads and attaching the top.

I adhered one of the cherubs to the top of the shaker, putting the others aside to wrap and send to my swap partner.

I added a few Prima flowers and a scattering of pearls.

I used scraps to create a card and a pocket to hold it on the reverse side of the tag.

I finished the tag by looping a few lengths of contrasting fibers and trims through the hole on top.
