A RAK from Laura

Card and Tags Header

Hello, Laura here today to share a mixed media tag and a little gift wrapping.

I love to send little RAK’s to my crafty friends, and rather than just pop this gold twine in an envelope I thought I’d have a go at ‘pretty-ing it up’.  I gathered some supplies from SpiegelMom Scraps and some recycled tissue paper…

I took a blank tag and Pucker Up Pink Dazzlerz.  I put a fairly thick layer through a stencil and while it was still wet I pushed some sequins in to the paste.  As the paste dries it acts like a glue and holds the sequins firmly.  I took a large glassine bag, tore it down to size and ran the bottom edge through my sewing machine.  Then when the tag was dry I layered it upon a doily, wrapped around some of the gorgeous navy twine and added a tiny peg.  I decided at the last minute that the peg needed to be pink too so I gave it a coat of Dazzlerz!
