Avery Elle Plus One new baby tag


Hello everyone,

Some friends of ours are off to America to meet their first Grandson next week, and I wanted to give them a present to take with them for the baby. I made this tag to go on it after seeing the inspiration tag made byKara for the Tag You're It challenge this month


I loved the layout of Kara's tag and changed the theme to be a baby tag.




I cut a tag from white card to be about 5 inches by 2.5 inches, and partially die cut a stitched square die in the lower part of the tag. I then scored along the die cut so I could fold the tag over on itself, and stamped and coloured the rattle and greeting from Avery Elle Plus One stamp set.



When you pull back the lower part of the tag, another area is revealed, and I added a further greeting and some little stamped hearts and stars, but these are totally hidden when the tag is closed. The tag was finished by adding some Papertrey Ink blue gingham paper at the top and bottom, and a couple of strips of blue card along with some ribbon.



This is how it looks when it is open and flat. Thanks for the inspiration Kara!


I'd also like to play with




Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.


Hugs

  11. What a pretty layout for a tag, not seen this design before, and it's lovely. Also like the crisp blue & white, and that delightful little rattle. Looks great on the stitching, and the new parents will be so pleased with this. Congrats to your friends on the new little one, and hope their trip to the USA is just brimming with fun times, friendly people, and loads of baby cuddling. Best kind of visit. TFS & Hugs
