A Trio of Tags


I was planning on making a few ATCs with the June Cards, Tags and More Kit from Tres Jolie, but the designs just kept on insisting on being tags! I cut three 8 x 3 rectangles from a USPS box, trimmed the corners, punched holes in the centers and covered both sides with papers from the Sir Vagabond 8 x 8 pad. Once that was done, I began to assemble my tags.

First up is the most ATC of the bunch, with the fussy cut focal image laying on a card laying on some gears. Those gears are one of the Tres Jolie chipboards that came in the kit. I covered it with some Metallic Flakes from the Mediums Kit and toned down the shine with Lindy’s Squirts in Hockey Puck Black. I selected a quote for the bottom and finished it with a few trim bows.

The next tag features Sir Vagabond himself… I’ve created a sort of dangle with several compasses held together with gears. All these images were fussy cut; I used Crackle Accents on the compass faces.

The last of the trio isn’t very Steampunk, is it? The flowers are from the Scrapbook Kit. I thought that they would make a perfect embellishment for the quote that I placed on the side.
