A Gift For You Tag - Cricut

Hello!  We're working on the second page in the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge book today and we'll be making a gift tag.   The paper set I'm using today is Avonlea, it's really full of beautiful muted colors.  Cut a tag at 3 3/4 inches out of the Avonlea blue cardstock using the "oval 1" key along with the "tag" key.  Next cut the same tag, using the same keys, out of Avonlea green and cut it at 3 1/2.  This tag makes a sweet little snowflake cutout.
Distress those pieces with slate ink and attach the white to the blue.

Out of Avonlea white, blue, green and slate cardstock, cut out 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch pieces and distress with slate ink.  Attach them to the tag as shown here in a grid pattern.  Do not think it has to be perfect!

Using the stamp set, "For a Friend," stamp "A Gift For You" onto a piece of the Avonlea white cardstock you've cut 1/4 by 2 1/4 inches.  Distress and stamp the words in slate ink.  Attach with 3-d foam tape.  The best thing about our foam tape is that you can cut it exactly at the size you need which was really helpful on such a skinny phrase as this one.  Add the sparkle flourishes smallest piece to the left of your tag.   Attach a green epoxy bubble in the middle of the snowflake cut out then slip knot a ribbon through the tag's hole.  So easy!
