You Rock Gift Tag


Good Sunday evening! I hope you all have had a restful weekend. The Seattle Seahawks won today, that is a good thing. Hee. I enjoyed hostessing the Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge.

My teenage son had a birthday party to go to for a friend of his that is a girl. So I made this gift tag that he put on his gift. They are friends from school and teenagers, so I kept that in mind when I designed it.

This Rockin new release was perfect: ROCK ON from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

WHAT I DID: I made my tag 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 from a cardboard piece that was at the back of a stack of paper I purchased. This is about half the thickness of chipboard, but made a nice tag. I cut off the corners and rounded the bottom ones with a large corner rounder. I cut my paper the same and stiched only the top edges then adhered. Second, I cut my rulered DP from the bottom of the diagonals of my tag to the bottom. I punched the top with the EK success border punch. I hand stitched two rows just below the border. I then stamped first my guitar on the right that I new I was going to put a paper pieced one and pop up, so I positioned it where I wanted it then stamped around it trying to create a doodle look on notebook paper. I adhered it and stamped and cut out my guitar form DP and popped up with dimensionals then accented with stickles. I punched out one of the circles from the polka dot dP with a 1" circle punch, I love how it left a little edge around it. I stamped my sentiment on it. I just love the look of this sentiment. Then I positioned it over a polka dot and adhered. I filed all edges with a nail file and finished off with an eyelet and ribbon.

Thank You for visiting me today!
