NeW KiT in EtSy ShOp ToDaY

Update: Okie dokie, my Butter and Brown Crafty Kits are now up in my Etsy shop. Full of savory butter and brown goodies for you to use on cards, gift packages, tags, scrapbook pages, and more.
I thought I would share a few ideas of some tags you could make with the kit contents. Isn't it fun to see a beautiful mess spread out on your crafty table?
Using the three manila parcel tags from the kit, I chose to make a tag trio ensemble today. There's lots of fabric, lace, ric rac, etc in this kit. Instead of using glue which will warp the tags, I like to use double sided tape. Copic has a new tape that I tried out today and it works great to adhere fabric to paper, fabric to fabric, etc. Very high tack and easy to use. You can read all about it here on Marianne's blog.
With the kit, you'll get a long strip of buttery, floral fabric. You can cut it with scissors, pinking shears....or use dies like I did for the large tag using Papertrey's small scallop border die. See tags below. You can also rip fabric very easily to get a great homespun ribbon effect. Simply cut a snip in your fabric and then gently tear the fabric in half. I used the torn strips as ribbon to tie my tags onto cards, gift bags, etc.
Here's my little tag trio, you can zoom in to see all the homespun goodness. I used the Chamomile Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo ink to stain my small clothespin. Love!
For my two larger tags, I used the Tiny Tag that comes in the kit to stamp on a yellow apple from Lisa Johnson's Just for You set. Great idea for back to school teacher gift, attached to a goodie bag. For the smaller of the two tags, I used a handmade doodad that comes with the kit. It features Papertrey flower dies cut from patterned paper and felt.
Here's a little samplet of gift idea.....attach a small tag to the coin envelope that comes with the kit. I'll give it away with a jar of my fresh peach jelly that I made yesterday. Inside the envy, I can add a small snippet of cardstock and hand write a few recipe ideas for the jelly. Note: Jelly recipe came straight from the Certo packages. Note: Certo is the stuff you use to make jelly get firm. Which mine is not setting up. I digress.
Anywho, the kits are up in the shop....all packaged up cute like and ready for new homes. Thanks for stopping by today!
Also, I've spent a good part of the week searching out new products for my Etsy shop. I've ordered lots of new goodies which should be arriving soon. Wait til you see what I have planned. Waaaaiitttt for ittttt. ;)
