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.
