Ribbonista Valentine's Day Blog Hop- Day 2!

Welcome to the May Arts Ribbonista Blog Hop! If you came here from Christina's Blog today, you're on the right track! If not, make sure you hop back to the beginning today and start at the May Arts Blog! If you haven't been hopping with us all week long, be sure to stop by the May Arts blog  for the full hop order for each day this week and a chance to win some ribbon for yourself! 

I made a cute little Valentine Tag to share today.  This would make a great Valentine project to make with the kids or even a great one to give to that special someone this Valentine's Day! 

Start with a #8 manila tag and some mists. Fold the end of the tag (about 2 inches) and staple sides to form a pocket. 

Spritz entire tag with multiple colors of  mists (I used Imagine Crafts Fireworks in Angel Pink, Rose Bud, Lady Bug) and let dry or apply heat gun to speed dry time. 

Ink edges of tag with ink (Memento- grey flannel) and an ink blusher or dauber. 

Punch shapes from patterned paper (tags, regular & scalloped circles). Ink edges of all shapes. 

Take a plain white ribbon rosette (393-25-01) and spritz with the multiple colors of mist. Dab with paper towel to absorb some excess ink, sit aside to dry.

Cut the ribbon from behind the rosette once it is dry, add ribbons to the tag. You can also add your paper embellishments and some coordinating stickers.  



Thanks for stopping by! Now hop right along and see what Sandy has to share today!
