Today I am going to do a tutorial.
I've only done 1 or 2 of them, so
please forgive me for any blunders. :)
I wanted to do a car freshener today.
You could hang this in the car,
or a closet, or put it in a drawer
or a suite case.
This is what we will be making today.
This tag is double sided.
We will need to do the same thing on both sides.
First, pick out a shape for your tag.
I used this one from spellbinders.
Use what you have, it could be a square,
a circle, or a diamond shape.
Pick out what you want to
stamp on the tag.
I used this wonderful little stamp
from Crafter's Companion called
I stamped it out on cream colored
card stock with Memento black ink.
Then colored them in with my
Inked the edges with Stampin Up's
Cherry Cobbler ink.
I know it's a little hard to see, but it is there.
Next, we are going to play with some
wonderful stuff called
I purchased mine from a
great company called
They have everything you need.
These are the colors I used.
All you need to do is put little drops of glue
where you want the fluff to stick.
There is a great video showing you
how to use Flower Soft on the
Stamping Scrapping website.
Now, to make sure the little flower's don't
fall off, I used a sealant to cover the tag.
works great. Your hubby may
have a paint sealer in his work area.
Just make sure it is clear, and use it outside.
The fumes can make you a little loopy!!
I'm loopy any way...
So it doesn't matter.
:) LOL :)
I used the Stick & Stay to put the two
tags together. Use what you have...
To make the card smell nice, I found
these lovely little bottles of
These are awesome!!!
Just add a drop or two and the scent
will last a long time.
It is wonderful for these tags.
Use one for spring, ( I used Honey Suckle)
when that is gone, use one for fall or
Apple cinnamon for Christmas.
Stamping Scrappy has these also.
Don't let the size fool you.
You only need a small amount.
You can also get bottles of different scents
at Michael's or your local craft center.
Look in the candle or soap making section.
I punched a hole in the top of the tag,
to put the twine.
I also added some ribbon on the bottom
of the tag.
I needed a pink, so I made the color I needed.
This is called HUG SNUG seam binding.
It comes in 100 yd rolls, I buy white and cream.
I found mine at
Cut a piece of ribbon, and pick out the color
You can use a reinker or an ink pad,
or a spray ink, what ever you have.
I put on gloves. I hate getting ink on my
hands, because then it goes every where.
My face, clothes, the cat!!
Put the ink on your crafting mat.
( or in a bowl).
Spray some water on it.
Let the ribbon soak it up.
Then just flatten it out, or crinkle it up,
and let dry. I would not use the heat gun
unless it's in small bursts, it will melt the
seam binding. :(
Then use it as you like.
There are all kinds of videos on
You Tube, just type in
" Dying my own ribbon ".
I punched 2 holes at the bottom of the tag.
Then threaded 2 pieces of ribbon
through, one for each side.
Added some pearls, also dyed
the same color.
(dip in left over ink)
Are you still with me?
If so, you get a gold star!!
If you have any questions, let me know.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
And have a scrappy day.
