Hope you guys are having a great week so far. For today's post, thought I would share some inspirations for using all those scraps that we have hoarded away; along with some yummy Maya Road products of course. I don't know about you, but I tend to keep every single little tiny piece of pattern paper (just can't get myself to throw anything away). And what better project to create with these little bits than tags (and/or cards)... and comes in handy when you want to include a little personal touch to any gift.
First up is this tag that I created using some strips of pattern papers to decorate the bottom portion of the tag and also some banner details and of course with loads of Maya Road goodness. Here I used a Kraft Decorative Journaling Tag, Kraft Die Cut Butterflies, White Kraft Typography Numbers, Leaf Trinket Pin, Vintage Pale Pink Pearl Ball Pins, Canary Paper Twine Cording, Button Mini Chipboard, Leaf Velvet Ribbon and Seafoam Green Maya Mist.
Having some fun with layering details and love how you can easy color those chipboard pieces to any color that you want/need. Also another new favorite product from this year winter release are those paper twine cording - these are super fun to use!
And here's another tag that I created using those tiny pieces of pattern papers that I had left over and of course along with some more trinket pins, flower, chipboards and more twine. Maya Road products used on this are: Mini Scallop Chipboards, Green Velvet Ribbon, Leaf Trinket Pins, Espresso Brown Maya Mist, Champagne Vinttage Butterfly Trinket Pins, Canary Paper Twine Cording and Pink Ribbon Flower.
On this tag, I first started by misting the mini scallop chipboards and adhering those on top of the bits of papers that I had left. Then once again, I used the remaining strips of paper on the bottom along with some ribbon. Then came the flower and more twine. On this tag, I had stitched one of the sides of the twine circle to secure it in place (on the previous tag, I had stapled the twine down and covered the staples with the baanner/ribbon papers).
I didn't stamp any saying on these tags just yet, but will definitely be doing so as and when I use them. This way, I don't need to worry if I have enough of a certain type of tag (ie. birthdays, thank you, congrats, etc).
Thanks for stopping by everyone and don't forget, put those scraps to use!
