Recently I have been noticing the paper crafting boards I follow on Pinterest are pinning new types of tag art. From fun and funky to just beautiful, I am loving the variety of art being shown on these little “mini” canvases. I felt inspired to start working on more tags to build up a collection for gifts, paper embellishments and jewelry.
This tutorial is for a simple but lovely Vintage Copper Tag.
G&P Butterfly Charm Set
G&P Vintage Dress Forms Accents
G&P Glastique Gloss Finishing Glaze
G&P Copper Kettle Embossing Powder
G&P Piccolo Embossing Powder Adhesive
G&P Yellow Ochre 3D Enamel Gel
G&P Oval Bezel with 1-Loop
Piccolo Easy Grip Tweezers
Brown ink stamp pad
Mini Adhesive Foam squares
Vine and sentiment stamps
Small piece of cardstock
Smear G&P Yellow Ochre 3D Enamel Gel both on the front and back of the bezel. Let dry.
Carefully remove the swirl dress form G&P Vintage Dress Forms Accents set. Using a craft knife remove the stand from the dress form. Save the stand piece and all of the other kit pieces for A time for Nature tutorial; check out the Globecraft & Piccolo blog for instructions. 🙂
Stamp a sentiment on the small piece of card and cut to fit the tag. Rub the brown ink on the edges of the card stock to give it an aged look.
Use Glastique Gloss Finishing Glaze to glue on the sticker gems to the tag as shown. Let dry.
Thread the ribbon through the loop on the top of the tag and tie.
Now you have an embellishment to add to a gift or paper craft.

Until next time, safe travels!
