I know - it's been awhile (again)...but I've been doing a lot of things. You can always check my UTube channel to see what I've been up to. But for now, here's a swap I followed along (but didn't join) at Mini Album Scraps - Clipboard Tags.
The requirements were to make an 8x4 tag using chip board and decorative paper. On it, you had to have a die cut, a handmade flower; make three more tags (a variety of sizes), an envelope and a dangle. There had to be something to "clip"; hence the word "clipboard" tag.
I just added simple embellishments to make the tag more decorative. The bird is a chipboard embellishment from Michael's $1.50 bin (I miss the dollar days). This boot is from a clip art gallery from a publishing company.
This tag has the handmade flower that I sprayed with a Dylusions spray. On each clip, the dangle rests. I used the same spray for the chipboard key at the top of the clipboard.
This die cut is an image from the same publisher, just adhered to chipboard and sitting atop foam dots to raise it. The clock in the upper left corner was crackle accented and if you could zoom in, you'll see it worked this time - looks gorgeous!
This was a fun swap. The postage is a bit tiring for me so I've elected to do 1:1 swaps with others. I'll show you one I recently completed on the next post; using the first set of Prima dolls.
Thanks for taking a look - Happy Crafting! :-)
