Summer is around the corner and it is time to get ready for birthdays, barbecues and summer bashes. Instead of spending money on a lot of expensive gift packaging, why not use the three R's of Conservation: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle? Reduce the amount of packaging in your life and the world by reusing bags and giving them a facelift with materials you have lying around the house. I still had some of the gorgeous Summer Fresh collection that I wanted to use up before I break into the Brand New I Heart Summer collection.
I thought is would be really fun to create this large star that would frame the fun tag. I created the two sized stars with a clip art image in Microsoft Word, printed them onto plain cardstock and then cut them out to be traced onto the patterned paper. I know, very old school right? Then I added some hand stitching around the red star.
These tags were so much fun to make. All of the elements in the Summer Fresh collection are so bright and bold and look wonderful against the beautiful burlap patterned paper. I got out my old Fiskars Apron Lace punch to make the red border on the bottom of the tags.
