Pink Tags For LUFP


For Saturday's lyrics how about a little Chicago:


Saturday in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
Saturday in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
People talking, people laughing
A man selling ice cream
Singing Italian songs
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I've been waiting such a long time
For Saturday

For today I'd like to share some "pink" Christmas tags I created for Link Up For Pink.

I chose to use the same patterned paper, but come up with three totally different tags.



For the large snowflake tag, I traced the tag on the patterned paper, cut it out and then cut it at an angle. After attaching it to the tag I zig zag stitched with my sewing machine. Then just glued my large, glittery snowflake towards the bottom.


For the next tag I again traced the tag on to the patterned paper and cut it to fit the top portion of the tag.  I chose some card stock to match the dark pink in the pattern paper, cut a small strip of it, border punched it, attached it under the patterned paper then stitched across the top with my sewing machine and embellished it with a few pearls. I stitched around the bottom of the tag, punched a heart in one corner and attached a snowflake sticker in the other.


For the last tag I put the bottom of my tag, centered in my border punch, and just punched one time so that it would stay intact. Then I took a small piece of the patterned paper and border punched it, glued it above the punched out portion of the tag and zig zag stitched across it. I used Stickles to put some random snow flakes on the tag. I cut a tree out with the reverse side of the patterned paper, attached it to the tag with Pop Dots and topped it with a snowflake sticker.


Supplies used: tags - Staples; patterned paper - Silly Chilly in Jolly By Golly by Cosmo Cricket; large snowflake - Scrapbook Studios; card stock - dark pink; pearls - Kaiser craft; border punch - EK Success; small heart punch - my stash; snowflake sticker - Sandylion Essentials; Diamond Stickles; border punch - Fiskars; small snowflake sticker - Sandylion Essentials; Pop Dots; sewing machine.
