Tags ...Tags and More Tags

I hope you are all having a great summer.  The Texas heat is definitely upon us...my car thermometer read 107 when I left the Little Blue House yesterday.  This is a good time to be inside crafting.  At the LBH we have our wonderful Blocks and Base with Tag sets as part of our Creatuive Buffet classes (check out the website for pics).  We started the tag sets last October and have released some really cute ones with each new season.  Don't despair if you have not started yours, it is not too late and we are planning to continue them as each new season approaches.  I needed a way to store mine and since we could no longer get the Maya Road tins - I found this option instead.  The box is from the Container Store and costs about $1.99.  They come in several colors but I really liked this chocolate brown.  The box is about 8" x 4 1/2" x 9"

Of course I could not just let it be plain :( what fun is that?  So I took a piece of paper I had left from the Prima Crad kit class.  You will need three 12" strips that are about 2 1/2" wide.  Wrap them around the box making sure the front piece is centered so no seams show.  Continue around to the back of the box.  I wanted the edges to be pretty so I attached some ribbon to the top and bottom of the paper strip.
I then added a few Prima Flowers from my stash and also a beige felt rosette that I made with the Sizzix 3D Flower die (you can order from the LBG because we are a Sizzix ordering site). I then added a few leaves that I sprayed with Tattered Angels Hula Hoop mist. Stuff (very technical term) some ribbon loops behind the flowers for some added dimension. I then cut a tag - and cleverly wrote "Tags" on it and attached just behind the flowers. We are working on new tags so check the website for announcements.
Post a comment on what you think the new set will say...

Stay Cool
