Illustrated Craft Tutorial - How to Craft the Happy Birthday Tag

This tag looks lovely in other colors as well!



Birthday Tag 1

1. Use a Fiskars template for the large tag or you can use the template found on the template pages found on this site. Cut one tag out of the textured cardstock.

2. Chalk the edges of your tag to give it a dimensional look.

Birthday Tag 3

3. Cut a strip out of the textured cardstock that is the same width of your tag and about 1.5 cm high. Chalk the edges of this strip as well.

Birthday Tag 4

4. Lay the strip on the tag about 1 cm from the bottom. Punch a hole through both layers of the strip and tag.

5. Secure each hole with an eyelet. Also punch a hole through the top of the tag and fix an eyelet there, too.

Birthday Tag 6

6. Print “Happy Birthday” out in green on a piece of the textured cardstock. Cut it evenly out. Punch 2 flowers out of the cardstock and chalk the edges of these flowers. Punch 2 circles out of the green paper and place one on the center of each flower.

7. On the backsides of the flowers, stick a piece of the foam tape and remove the backing.

Birthday Tag 8

8. Insert a torn piece of fiber paper on the tag (and under the strip) and secure the backside of the fiber paper with a bit of stick glue. Insert the happy birthday greeting under the strip and stick the flowers on.

Birthday Tag 9

9. Punch a small flower in each corner of the happy birthday greeting if you like. Gather a 9 cm piece (approx. 4 inches) of mesh ribbon in the middle. Tie it to the satin ribbon so it looks like a bow and secure the satin ribbon in the top eyelet.
