Not a Red Valentine Tag

Can you believe we are in the 2016!  I can remember like it was yesterday that I was at CHA!!!  I am packing my bags to go again in just six days!!!  Where did 2015 go?  I am not complaining, I had a great year, they just seem to go by too fast!

This month is all about SWEET, LOVE and anything Valentine!!!  I have a precious tag I created on a tag from the Tag Book available at Altered Pages.  I want to create tags each month in 2016 and finish it off in December.  Let's get started!

Use a tag from the Tag Book and paint about 1/4 of the top of the tag.  With brown ink distress the paint and edges of the tag.

Measure pattern paper from the Glitz Pack Laced with Grace paper pack to fit the tag. tear the top of the paper exposing about one inch of the tag to expose the painted portion.  

Cut a piece of Pure Silk Pink Ribbon, place it between the tag and pattern paper when you attaching the pattern paper with Glue Stick.  Distress the edges of the pattern paper with brown ink.  


Adhere doilies to the tag using the Glue Stick, attach Bazill Mini Border - White with Tacky Glue.  

With Glue Stick adhere image from the Not a Red Valentine Collage Sheet to a thin piece of chipboard (like a cereal box).  Fussy cut the image and adhere to the tag with Adhesive Dimensionals, while at the same time tucking some tulle under it!


Tie a bow with the Pure Silk Pink Ribbon, add  Petaloo Flowers, adhere Pink Ball Fringe Baby Size with Tacky Glue to the bottom of the tag. 

A Glitz Giant Rhinestone is tucked under the tulle and a hat pin is tucked into the tulle behind the image. 

Hope you are inspired to create your own Valentines!!!

 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.
