Wedding Bliss Gift Tag

Hey there crafty friends!! I'm back again this week with more Teresa Collins papers!!
Today I have a gift tag to share with you. A friend of mine is getting married and her wedding is just around the corner. I don't know about you but I don't buy my greeting cards or gift tags. I prefer to make them. It makes the gift that much more special.

Supplies Used
Cut'n'boss (Craftwell)
Teresa Collins Pocket Dies by Craftwell- Doily & Heart Card (Lover's Lane), Numbers (Memory Collection), Scalloped Oval Frame (Thankful), Ring & Flower (Girl's Best Friend)
Teresa Collins Papers- Collectors Edition (Geometric), Project Pink (Cards) & (Gold)
Xyron Mega Runner 
Embroidery Thread & Needle
Hot Glue & Glue Stick
Paper Flowers

I started with 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of chipboard. I cut one of the corners at a diagonal and used the triangular cut out as a template to cut the other side. This ensures that both side are cut at the same angle and are even. 

Then with a crafter's knife, I cut my "Geometric" paper to the exact shape and size of my chipboard tag. 

Next, I cut a couple card panels from Teresa Collins' Project Pink Cards paper. Then I used my heart card TC die to cut out the wood grain card to give a cute little heart window.

I love the gold on Teresa Collins' papers... it's not overwhelming like how some metallic or foiled papers can be. I cut my doily, numbers, and rings from the gold corner of the "Gold" paper. And for my scalloped frame I used more of that grayish-green color of the "Geometric" paper, cutting the center in just plain white cardstock.

Then I ran all my papers through my Xyron Creative Station. Love this extra large 9" platform... means everything goes through at the same time!

And... I love this part... now, just peel and stick!!

Did you know Craftwell's dies can cut through multiple layers of tulle... I cut this whole stack all together!! Talk about impressive!!

With a needle, embroidery thread, and a button, I secured my flowers together. Then I fluffed my layers to make my flower fuller. Next, I hot glued stems of paper flowers and my tulle flower to the front of my tag.

Finally, I punched a hole at the top of my tag and tied a jumbo bow on top using more white tulle.

And here is my finished tag...

From this picture you can really see a big difference that fluffing the tulle makes. 

I hope the happy couple loves the decoration on the gift as much as the actual gift itself!!
I know I do!! LOL

And I hope you enjoyed today's project! 
Until next time...
