Fancy Flower Tag from Two Tag Die

One of the cool dies for the Big Shot in the Stampin' Up! catalog is the Bigz Two Tag Die, new this year.  You get two attractive and useful tags together on this one die:  one with a rounded scallop top and pierced "stitching" and the other, wider with a score line and a slit to tuck it up into.

The tag pictured uses the scallop top tag, even though you can't really see it in the picture.  I wheeled across the bottom in Pretty in Pink Ink and the Very Vintage wheel, then added the Happy Easter from the Well Scripted set (Occasions Mini Catalog) punched with the Large Oval and layered on a Certainly Celery Scalloped Oval.
The flower was made by rolling a strip of tissue wrapping paper with the same Very Vintage wheel in pink ink, folding it into eight layers and punching it with the Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch.  A brad was inserted into the center then the layers lifted up individually and "fluffed" with my fingers.  The green leaves beneath the flowers are actually punched from Certainly Celery cardstock with the Five Petal Flower Punch.  Gotta' love all those great and useful punches!  They make great projects and make them go faster!!

A 1/8" hole was punched in the top and a length of the luscious pink Taffeta Ribbon inserted and tied.

This tag would be great on a gift bag or package, or any number of other uses!

In these two pictures you can see close-up details of the tag:

I have a picture of a gift bag with one of these tags on it that I'll find and upload tomorrow!

Thanks for visiting!


3-25-10  Edited to add: Here is are two bags embellished with the Sweet Pea Designer Paper Pack and the tags I posted above.  These were designed by my talented friend and fellow demo, Gayle Enouen.  Aren't they gorgeous?!!  She gave me the one on the right!!  Love it!!

Margaret, I so love getting your daily inspiration - and this one is particularly delicate and useful! Applying the punched flower technique to tissue gives us a very soft version. Thanks so much.
