French Country Amour Tag with Tutorial
By Pam Bray
“Hello, everyone! I hope you are as excited as I am to see the return of Graphic 45 French Country – Deluxe Collector’s Edition! I love the chic, vintage, country feel of the papers and chipboard! There are so many beautiful projects I plan to create with it. Today I created an “Amour” French Country Tag with hidden tag. It is always fun to create tags for use when designing other projects or to just have them on hand.” Hugs ~Pam Bray
1.) Create tags to incorporate for future projects or to keep on hand for gift tags.
2.) Lay pieces down to get your initial design for your project prior to adhering the pieces. I sometimes photograph to remember where each piece will be placed.
3.) Add pop dot to stickers and then apply baby powder over sticker; this will make it not sticky and keep the stickers from folding and clinging to the project.
