A little something I did while I was watching TV
I was watching General Hospital today on my computer because I missed it yesterday. Well, I was kind of bored so I thought I would play around with some scraps that I had laying around. I actually cleaned my scrap area today..LOL. I had paper everywhere!!! I just got some buttons from China today in the mail. They were so cute and I couldn't wait to use them BUT guess what I didn't use them..lol. The color just motivated me!! I will take a picture of all my goodies tomorrow and show you what I got off of Ebay. So, I kept throwing my cereal boxes in the recycle bins in the garage and noticed that I had a ton out there. So....a brilliant thought came to mind...lets make something with it. I got my large scallop punch out and punched the chipboard with it. Then I started making my tag. I first painted the chipboard with acrylic paint "Teal". Then I got out my Martha Stewart glue pad and inked up a really cute stamp with glue and stamped my chipboard. I then poured glittered onto the stamped image. I knocked off the glitter and dried it with my hair drier...LOL...I know...I know...I need a heat gun. That's on my list of things to get this weekend. Then I played around with my water and bazzill paper, to create the little blue flowers. Also, I made the stem that the flowers are glued to. I saw a lady making her own stems and vines and thought I would try it out. It didn't come out like I wanted it but oh well, it works!! Then I picked up a pack of these cute little butterflies at walmart that were on clearance for $1.00. I popped it with a pop dot. I then punched my hole for my eyelet and ran some fibers and ribbon through it. I then stamped "dream" onto a small piece of bazzill paper and then popped it up with a pop dot. So, after a few minutes playing with all these things I came up with this tag. You never know what you will come up with when playing around with different items and freelancing it!
