#G45VideoTutorial Princess Tag
By Tanya Cloete
“Hello, dear G45ers! Happy to share with you my #G45VideoTutorial project for this month featuring the stunning Princess Collection. I have created this simple and easy tag with die cuts, ephemera, chipboard pieces, stickers, and embellishments.
Here with the supplies and instructions, you may use to recreate such a project:
Graphic 45 Supplies:
- Princess Collection 8×8 Paper Pad
- Princess Stickers
- Princess Chipboard
- Princess Ephemera
- Square Tag & Clock Metal Dies
- Large Tag, ATC Tag & Flower Metal Dies
- Square Ivory Tag Album
- Various Dies
- Pearl String
- Eyelets and Brad
- Flat Back Pearls
- Double Sided Tape
- Adhesive Foam Squares
- Hot Glue
Cut a tag, a few die cut shapes and a little bow (assemble with a brad). Layer the die cut flowers and adhere. Add a flat back pearl in the center of the flower cluster and butterfly.
Tip: Die cut the flower vine from an extra ivory tag…to match the colour scheme.
Adhere the banner die cut shape with adhesive foam squares.
Tip: Adhesive foam squares add a little dimension to your project. You could also use foam board or cardboard.
Place your die cut leaves and flower vine in the position you want it then add some hot glue to your flower cluster and adhere.
Tip: No need to glue the die cut leaves, by adding the flower with hot glue on top will keep it in place.
Mat the sticker onto a circle die cut shape. Add some eyelets to the chipboard elements. Adhere with double-sided tape. Add some pearl string through the hole of the tag." ~Tanya
