Sewn Valentine Tag


For my design team project for Creative Critterz Imaginations today, I have a fun tag that I made to go with a Valentine's Day gift for a friend. This was really simple to make. First I cut a tag and its shadow from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More at 4" using the "Cut Only " feature on my Imagine. Then I used the square that is a stock image on the Imagine, and flood filled four of them with different patterns from the Yummy cartridge at 5". Using my paper trimmer, I cut various shapes out of the patterned squares and adhered them to the tag with a small bit of mono-adhesive. I stayed away from the edges, so as not to gunk up my sewing machine. Then I sewed the pieces to the tag and adhered the whole thing to the shadow piece.

For embellishments, I added a cute sentiment on a ticket, some felt flowers with a button, and an eyelet with some pretty ribbon. Easy, but fun! Be sure to stop by Creative Critterz Imaginations to see what the rest of the design team has created for you this week!
