Supplies:

  • white or light-colored cardstock
  • tea
  • pans or cooling racks
  • hole punch
  • ribbon, twine, or trim

1. Brew a pot of strong tea.  You can cool it or use it hot.  Hotter tends to dye the cardstock darker, but it also breaks the paper down a bit more.  If you are going for aged and distressed though, that’s not a bad thing.  🙂

2. Cut cardstock to the desired size of your tags.

3. Pour tea into a bowl and slip the tags into it, making sure they don’t stick together at first.

4. I add the teabags into the bowl as well if I’m going for a blotchy, uneven aged appearance on the tags.

5. When the tags have reached the color you want, carefully remove from the tea and place in a single layer on a pan or cooling rack. You can let them air dry or place in a barely warm oven just until dry.  I’ve found that the tags curl up a little more in the oven, but I like that. 🙂

6. Here’s a picture of the died tags with a couple that haven’t been died.

7. Stamp with desired images, punch holes, and string with twine or ribbon.

8.  Try different types of teas for different colors!  I’ve used different herbal teas to get aged pastels.

9. Use as a scrapbooking embellishment or gift tag.  Here I’ve used one on a gift bag using the beautiful May SNS kit and hand-crinkled seam binding!

This is a fun “trash to treasure” project perfect for Christmas!  Following is the list of supplies I used, but you can adapt this to whatever you have on hand, as long as you have cardboard, glitter, and glue.

Supplies:

  • Corrugated cardboard box or sheet
  • Martha Stewart glitter in various colors
  • Liquid glue
  • Various patterned papers
  • Pop dots or other foam adhesive
  • Vintage sheet music
  • Ribbon and trim (I used ribbons and trim from the SNS Nov kit) and/or crinkled seam binding (mine is from etsy)
  • Tag shapes to trace and cut out or die cut tags of varying sizes
  • Distressing tool (or use scissors edge)
  • Eyelet and setting tool
  • Scissors
  • Pen
  • Scallop Punch
  • Distress Ink

1. Start with corrugated cardboard.  If yours has paper on both sides, just peel off the paper on one side.  As long as it’s not printed, you don’t have to get it perfect.

2. Draw rough tree shapes on the back of the cardboard.  Again doesn’t need to be perfect.

3. Cut them out.

4.  They should look about like this when you flip them back over.  Ink the “trunk” part of the tree. (I forgot to take a picture of this.)

5. Spread with liquid glue and sprinkle with glitter.  Keep in mind that the more glue you have on it, the more glittery your tree will be.

6. Play around with lots of colors!

7. Trace and cut out  (or die cut) several tags, so that they are slightly different sizes.

8. Distress the edges and stack them up with 3d foam adhesive between the layers.

9.  Punch and distress scalloped circle and add to tag.

10. Add some ribbon/trim/seam binding and attach eyelet.

11. When glue and glitter are completely dry, add tree to tag.

12. Add ribbon through eyelet.

13.  Use as is for a gift tag or attach to the front of a card or altered notebook for a gift!

Bazzill, American Crafts, Scrapworks Papers  .  American Crafts Thickers, Colorbok tags, Doodlebug alphas, Bazzill Blossoms, Prima Sprites

This is a faux embroided wall hanging.  I traced around an S chipboard letter to look like stitches and added the threaded needle to make it seem more realistic.  Making Memories Paper

This is the pull out from my son’s Highlights magazine.  I added a cover and ring to make it more durable for my son to look through. Colorbok cardstock, Bazzill Sizzix Flowers, Making Memories Paper, Basic Grey alpha stickers.

Just a cute little journaling tag.  Tons of paper piecing, stickles, and diamond glaze on this one!  DCWV, Love Elsie, American Crafts Papers.  Autumn Leaves, Kolette Hall, & JRL Designs Stamps with Stazon.

Christmas Journaling Tag.  American Crafts & Paper Studio Papers. 7 Gypsies Tag.  Hobby Lobby Stamp inked with Stazon and glittered up in Stickles.

Marcella by K sticker.  Making Memories star brads.  More Stickles, Stazon ink, & Pink Paislee stamp.

Thanks for looking 🙂

Okay, so I am a tomboy scrapper.  The great part about this ribbon kit is that it can be super girly, masculine, or neutral.

I never really been into sheer ribbons until I actually started to play and create with them.  They make nice, subtle background strips and “leaf” accents as I did on my gnome card above.

I do love tags, but find them outdated at times.  At the same time, a tag just doesn’t feel right without a ribbon topper.  Sheer ribbon works again, by accenting my color choices here, yet still blending in transforming this tag into a more trendier journaling spot.

Pink polka dot ribbon and the dark green velvet ribbon is pure girlyness here on my sparkly lemonade card.

I used the green pom-pom trim ribbon strand to add a little hip and whimsical feel to my thank you card.  As you can see, it is wide enough to place a larger sized brad through the trim.

The Fairy Garden kit just screams out shabby-chic to me.  The pink velvet ribbon is feminine and I love the added texture it brings to projects.

I fell in love with this sleepy fox print I found on IndieFixx, but wasn’t exactly sure how or where I would display it in my home.  I decided to alter a random wooden frame I found in my closet with a nature theme to mimic this print.  I trimmed out the inner frame edge in the dark green velvet.  The neat part about the dark green velvet is that the opposite side of it is a smooth light green.  I love when I tie a bow with the green velvet that it shows both sides and mixes textures.  For a dainty look, I overlayed the green lace trim over the velvet.  If you attempt to do this, I would recommend Zip Dry clear liquid adhesive or something similar with some heavy books placed on top.

I made this mini-book as part of DT Member Ann’s Go Green Challenge.  It is made from 4 toilet paper rolls.

The toilet paper roll is flattened with the end open to create a little slot where you can slip in little tags and extra pictures for this family mini-book.

Thanks for looking! 🙂

This month has been a pretty crazy one for me (three weeks of being sick) so I don’t feel I’ve really been able to do justice to this kit–but I still have plenty of ribbons and trims left, so hopefully I’ll be able to get some more done with them. 🙂

Here are my projects (so far!) with the Autumn Afternoon Kit:
