Welcome in to the Green House on the Hill. To kick things off, I came up with a project using fabric (when you get to the giveaway, this will all make sense). I made a few fun, fabric tags that can be used as an embellishment on a scrapbook page or on a card. So let’s get started.
This is what I used:
Big Shot Die-cutting Machine
Sizzix Tag Dies (mine are from the originals collection)
Ink (I used Excelsior Dye and a Tsukineko VersaFine ink)
Sewing Machine and some thread
First, I cut the fabric with my Big Shot. I love the Big Shot for cutting all sorts of stuff. It works really well with fabric.
Next, I used a round, foam stamp to stamp a circle over the hole that is punched in the tag to make it look like a manila office tag.
Then, I loaded some contrasting thread in my sewing machine and sewed a zigzagged border around the big tag and a straight stitch around the smaller tag. Finally, I added some stamped images to both tags.
So now you have seen something that I have done with fabric. Now, I want to show you Creating Keepsakes’ latest special publication and give you a chance to win a copy of your own.
