Heartfelt Creations Wednesday - Hang in There Tag

Good morning everyone!  It's Wednesday once again and I'm here to share another Heartfelt Creations project.  This week I decided to make you a tag. Those of you who know me, know how much I love tags.  They are little works of art and can be a stand alone gift or can be slipped down inside a gift bag along with a small gift for someone special in your life.  I spend just as much time on making a tag as I do when I make a card so I can't say they are any quicker or easier to make but I just love them.

Instructions:
My Tag is 4 X 8 1/2.  Pick a piece of the paper collection and distress the edges then glue to the tag.  I used some of the Bamboo Leaves to go around the edges of the tag before I added the paper.  Stamp, cut out and color the palm tree, monkeys, the banana and the flowers.  Decide where they look the best on your tag and glue them down.  I cut the sentiment out of the paper and backed it with a piece of green cardstock to make a sign.  I used the dimension tape to adhere it to the top of the tag.  Next I cut a piece of white seam binding and sprayed it with water then I rubbed the Rhubarb Stalk ink onto my craft mat and then swirled the seam binding through.  When it achieved the color I wanted, I scrunched it up and laid it aside to dry.  Once dry I tied the bow and used Scor-Tape and glue to hold it down.  Next I tied a piece of the colored seam binding in the hole at the top.
