The focal point of my project are shimmer sprays.
I have used shimmer mist technique here.
To get a lovely effect you just need to blend the beautiful shades of sprays along with water…

Coming back to today’s tutorial now….
We often give out gifts to kids for birthdays or even as birthday return gifts.
How about making environment-friendly treat bags to give these gifts.

MAIN.jpg

 
Today, I am going to show you how to make pretty treat bags using two
stamp sets – Hogs & Kisses and Peek-a-boo.

IYY

Possible image 1
 
Here’s a look at the completed treat bags!

MAIN.jpg

 
po.png
  • A4 sized colored papers
  • Stamp sets (Peek-a-boo and Hogs & Kisses)
  • Archival ink
  • Zig clean markers (or your choice of colors)
  • Scrap papers
  • Satin ribbon/twine
  • Foam adhesive
 
Possible image 1
A step-by-step pictorial guiding you in making your own treat bags.
so lets begin…

step1

1.jpg

 
I took an A4 size paper. 
(The paper size would depend on the size of your gift.)
Folded half-inch margin at one edge.
Folded the remaining paper into half.

 
step2

Folded /Scored half an inch at the one end of this folded paper
and one and a half inch at the other end. 

2.jpg
step3
 Opened the sheet and cut the marked parts. 
 
3.jpg
step4
 
On cutting/trimming the marked parts, you get a sheet with scored sides.
 
4.jpg
step5
 I took Archival ink and my favorite stamp sets.
I took two images from the stamp set and stamped the images randomly all over the sheet (rotating the image randomly) Let the ink dry before the next step.

step6
Here, I have used different colored papers to make the treat bags. You can also use a white sheet and lightly color these stamped images. 
 
5.jpg
step7
 
Once the ink dried, I adhered the adhesive tape to the two margins on the sheet. Peeled open the tape and assembled the treat bag by bringing in the sides together. The one and a half inch margin remain open as it is the lid/cover of the treat bag.  Repeated the process with all the three bags.

6.jpg
And the treat bags are ready…. 
 
7.jpg
step8
To decorate the treat bags….
On a watercolor card-stock, I stamped the critters from the Hogs and Kisses stamp set, using Archival ink. Colored the critters with zig markers and fussy cut them. 
 
8.jpg
step9
Cut tags from scrap pieces of CS. 
Assemble the tag using the fussy-cut critters and the sentiments. 
 
9.jpg
step10
Now fill the treat bags, tie a ribbon/twine around it to close it. 
Tie the tag along with the ribbon/twine.

BEAUTIFUL TAGS: a complete tutorial!

Hello friends,

 This is Anila over the blog today,
and i have some tags tutorial to share with you today,
using different techniques and mediums.

fk

 

 



Who doesn’t love tags… 🙂
Stampers have used tags for years to create mini works of art.
A tag is small that is not too  intimidating very easy and fun to create..
that is .. it’s okay, even if you mess up.
Tags are great for experimenting with new techniques, too.

 

So I created these three easy yet fun tags with stamps, inks,
sprays ,stencils and shimmer pastes…

 

Possible image 1

 
 Here’s a look at the completed tags:

So lets begin with the tutorial…
(* picture heavy post!)

 

Possible image 1

 

 

step1
 
To begin with, I took white colored ready tags…
You can even cut them from a white Cardstock,
of any size to create your own custom sized tags.
10241014
Ready made TAGS
step2

Took the tag, secured it on the table with washi tape.
Then Secure the stencil over the tag with washi tape.
The stencil that i have used for this tag is from craftyscrappers
and its called,
create-a-scene(sunburst)
cc-stnl-12_694x768
CREATE-A-SCENE(SUNBURST)
step3

Take sufficient amount of shimmer paste (Separate stencil and shimmer paste for each tag) and evenly spread it across/through the stencil.
The shimmer paste that i am using here is called,
 2
step4
 
Repeat the same for all the three tags.
After applying a generous layer of the shimmer paste,
I let it air-dry. (You can heat-set it too!) 
(this is how they look…)
3
step5
 
 
Once dry I sprayed two of the tag with the coordinating shimmer sprays from my DT kit. (Spray each tag separately)
The shimmer pastes and shimmer sprays are extremely versatile and beautiful in itself.
The shimmer sprays that i used here are,
SHIMMER SPRAY-Grape juice and SHIMMER SPRAY-Sweet Pumpkin
(this is how they look…)
 
4
step6
 
For the third tag, I coloured the background using distress ink. 
(Applying Distress inks on the craft mat and picked up the color with water brush) 
 

5

step7
 
Let the tags dry again. 
(this is how they look…)
 

6

step8
 
Next, I started layering the tags with pollens and lots of flowers.
 7
step9
 
I tried to use the matching colored flowers and pollens for each tag.
Like this stem color tag with coordinating flowers…
8
 
step10
 
I stamped a seperate sentiment for each tag from Craftyscrappers stamp sets
and mounted them on the tag using foam adhesive.
I tied twines along with coordinating ribbon through the punched hole.
Lastly added matching sequins from craftyscrappers to add some elements.

Here’s are some of the close-ups of the tags:

 

(TAG#1)

For this Tag, i have used the sentiment from the stamp set, “Doodly Blooms”.

And For this Tag, i have used the sentiment from the stamp set, “Elephan-tastic Day!”

step1
Prepare Surface

I took a empty glass Jar, cleaned it’s surface properly and applied a coat of gesso.
A layer of gesso makes the surface ready for painting. 

 

Empty jar and gesso (before)


 
After one coat of gesso
step2
Paint the background
 
Once dried, I painted its surface with white chalk paint ( you can use acrylics too) using sponge and let it air dry.
 

 
After applying chalk paint
 
step3
Add Texture

Then I added the texture with Crafty Scrappers “Shimmer Paste” ( color – Dreams) using “Rose Bunch” stencil. You have to be very patient while doing this step…
I applied the Shimmer paste one side at a time and before applying it to another side ,
I let it air dry ( You can use heat gun to fasten this process :))
