You Inspire Me

Hello everyone, Jen here to share a little tag tutorial with you using this month's amazing Garden Art kit!  Everything but the red pearl in the center of the flower is from the kit!
I usually start my projects just kind of lining things up to see where I might like to put them.  I really liked the fabric and the stick pin leaves and wanted to use them both on this tag.

I cut a sheet of paper from the She Art pad included in the kit and then unstrung the shipping tag.
I tied the tag with this amazing ribbon from the kit and then used the string from the tag to tie a bow.  I glued the stick pin and the fabric leaf to the red flower and then added a little black flower and a pearl in the center. 
I stamped one of the sentiments from the Flutter By stamp set included in the kit on the bottom of the tag.  I didn't have enough room to fit the whole sentiment and so I masked the "me" at the end and put it below.  I'm a little bit embarrassed to show you my dirty foam but it is a great tip I was given a long time ago to stamp using a cushion of some type underneath the paper.  Gives a crisp impression every time!
I hope you enjoy this tag today - one of the dozens of projects you can make with all of these wonderful goodies in this month's kit!
Pin It!
