Tag Template for Accordian Card 100

Tag Template






1. Fold a sheet of the flowered blue paper and use the stick glue to glue it to the white blank card. This makes the card sturdy.
2. Cut a piece of the mesh ribbon to fit the size of your card and adhere it off center and digonal with clear sticky tape.
3. Cut a tag out of white cardstock and glue a piece of matching blue paper over it and cut away the excess paper so that the tag is blue.
4. Tear a strip of the natural paper and glue it to the tag. Trim the edges.
5. Punch 3 holes in the tag. One hole at the top middle and 2 holes to the top right. In the middle hole, attach an eyelet.
6. Emboss a square and inside the square the word “HI!” to a piece of the natural paper. Cut out around the edges and use 3-D pads to attach the piece to the tag.
7. Use the Sizzix Sidekick© and create a butterfly out of matching green paper. Use 3-D pads to attach the butterfly to the tag.
8. Insert the brad flowers in the 2 remaining holes in the tag.
9. Cut a strip of the mesh ribbon and tie it to the hole in the top of the tag.
10. Use the strong self adhesive foil to attach the tag now to the card.

Tip: The blue colored sheets used here came from the Collection “Bitty Scrap Pads ™ Heritage Post” size 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and the green butterfly from the K&C Company “Basicgrey 6x6 scrapbook designer papers” pad.
