Hello there, everyone! Today I´d like to share a step-by-step tutorial for a Coffee themed tag. I am a coffee lover since quite early childhood when my grandma used to make me a „children´s coffee“ with lots of milk and just a little bit of coffee. I have loved the smell of coffee ever since!! Therefore when Canvas Corp Brands launched their Beans & Bags collection, I knew I wanted create with it. This is the tag I created:
And this is how I created it:
First take a regular medium sized tag and stamp with a 7gypsies stamp and VersaMark ink onto the tag. Then pour embossing powder over the stamped areas, tap the residue off and heat set with a heat gun.
Next place the tag on a craft sheet and spray some Sugar Maple Glimmer Mist onto it. Let dry for a bit and wipe with a damp cloth over the tag. This way the stamped images will stay clean.
Then cut a piece of ivory burlap and attach it onto the tag using a stapler.
After that take a piece of golden metallic yarn and tie it around the burlap area. Tie a knot, cut the residue off.
Take a piece of kraft cardstock and using this 7gypsies stamp and black ink (Hero Arts Chalkboard ink) stamp a word, fussy cut it into a banner and adhere it onto the tag.
Next take a golden clothespin and adhere that onto the piece of burlap next to the stamped image.
Fussy cut a coffee cup out of the Beans and Bags fabric panel and color with Sugar Maple and Stone Glimmer Mist.
Cut an image out of the Beans & Bags on Kraft paper and use a stapler to attach it onto the tag.
Fussy cut another image from the same paper and adhere it onto the tag with a paper glue.
Next adhere the colored, fabric coffee cup overlappingly over the previous image.
Draw „coffee steam“ lines with Glossy Accents over the coffee cup and pour champagne toned micro beads onto those areas. Let dry for a while and then dap the residue beads off the tag. Add a cord piece to the tag.
Ink the edges of the tag with a black ink.
Add some black ink splatters using black Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze.
This is how the finished tag looks like. You can attach it to a coffee lover´s present or use it as part of another project (card, scrapbook layout etc.) or just hang it onto your own inspirational wall. Hope you enjoyed this little tag project!
