Tags with Cupcakes

Hi, Vladka here! Today I have these fun and happy tags for you. It is really easy to create them. So, let's start!

For two tags you will need the following supplies:

CottageCutz Dies: Listed Below
White cardstock for tag base
Additional piece of white cardstock to cut out the die cuts
Inks: Fired Brick Distress Ink and red dye ink for stamping
Other: paper trimmer, Sizzix machine, water, sheet of acetate, some sentiment stamps and polka dot stamp or polka dot pattern paper

Let’s prepare tag bases first! 

1. With Stitched Rectangle die cut two second biggest squares (seventh from the center).
2. With Rectangle die cut two third biggest squares (sixth from the center).
3. And now my favorite "smooshing" technique again :) Add some Fired Brick Distress Ink on acrylic block and spritzed some water on it. Then take a piece of plastic acetate and gentle pressed it against the block to pick up some of the ink. Now, press the plastic to smaller square to transfer the ink. This will give you a splotchy look. Do the same with second smaller square. Let dry.

Now, let's put Cupcakes together:

With Stitched Cupcake die cut both cupcakes out of some white cardstock. With polka dot stamp and red ink, stamp on both cupcake bottoms, on the heart and cherry. If you don't have such stamp, cut all these pieces out of polka dot pattern paper. You can also find free sample on internet. All you need to do is to print it with your printer. Now put all cupcake pieces together and glue one on each of the tags. For a finishing touch, stamp some sentiments and make the small hole on the top of both tags and put some string through them.

Such tags can be part of the presents or they can be used instead of cards or if you have guests, they can be part of the decoration.

Have fun creating!

Adorable little cupcake! I like how you turned it into a tag by adding the hole. It's those little things that can make a big impact. The cupcake is so cute with the stitching, too.
