I will admit-I am not the greatest in creating “off the page” projects, but with the aid of our brand new ColorBox® Erasable InkPad, I may venture off said page a little more often!
I created this tag with the aid of our NEW Erasable Fabric Ink and Ann Butler’s new Background Stamp- “Stitches.” If you’re like me, you need a little help in the application of an idea-especially if things like sewing isn’t your strong point. Luckily the new Ann Butler stamps were just what I needed to put this idea into fruition!
I began with a piece of duck fabric and a regular manila shipping tag; I used the tag as the base and guide for the final product. I cut the fabric down leaving roughly an inch on all sides.
Next, using ColorBox® Erasable Fabric Ink, I stamped the stitched line onto the fabric as a guide to let me know exactly where I will place the stitching on the bottom of the tag.
The ink is pretty light-fast, therefore, I was able to do my stitching right away. With the additional inch border that I left to cut later on, stamping the lines was an essential step for me.
The rest of the tag went pretty quickly once the stitching feat was accomplished! I added a little batting to what would be the interior of the tag for a little more texture and dimension.
Once the batting was in place, I cut the extra fabric off and stitched around the entire border of the tag. To finish-using fabric glue, I attached the snowflake ornament and a greeting!
I hope this fun little project stirred up some ideas for your next fabric project! Thanks for stopping by.
