Halloween Gift Tag

Have you been playing along with us this month and sharing your tag art?  Today I have a gift tag project that really holds a gift card.

To make this tag gift card, you need two tags and two pieces of card stock.  I made a hinge to hold the tags together by measuring the distance along the straight edge of the tag by 2 inches wide.  I used my Scor Board to make sure the fold is perfectly centered and straight.

I used ScorTape to hold the hinge and cards together with a touch of white glue for stability.

I cut the pocket freehand.  These tags are 3 1/2 inches wide, so I made the front of the pocket 3 1/4 inches, PLUS a half inch extra for folding on the back.  This was also attached with ScorTape and little bit of white glue.

I covered the front tag and the front of the pocket with Corazonitos Sabor paper.  It's a really pretty black and gray swirl pattern that's great for Halloween.

I chose some of my favorite Halloween collage images from the Altered Pages web site and this wonderful crow is a Bazzill embellishment.

I attached a Bazzill border and collages to camouflage the hinge that's glued in side.  You could create a liner to hide it, as well.  Fibers were added to both of the tags for a little flair.  The space on the bottom of the front tag was purposely left blank to write a little note and sign the card.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
