Oval Butterfly Tag by Nancy

Oval Butterfly Tag by Nancy | Rinea

Hi, everyone! 

It's Nancy back today with a new project!
Today I'm going to show you how I made this pretty tag, using these gorgeous foiled papers from Rinea!

Oval Butterfly Tag using Rinea Foiled Paper

I'm using the "Pastels" collection for this project.

Here's how I did it:

Materials Used:

Rinea Pastels Foiled Paper Variety Pack

Die: Tutti Designs - Butterfly Dance;

Template: Fiskars Oval;

Cardstock: Black, Mauve;

Ribbon: Celebrate It - Turquoise, Mauve;

Sequins: Turquoise, Purple.

1. I traced around the outside of the Fiskars template twice, onto black cardstock. I cut the ovals out. 

2. I placed the template down on one of the black ovals and traced the inside oval. I cut the inside oval out, leaving a black cardstock frame. 

3. I cut a piece of the Turquoise/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper to fit behind the black cardstock frame and adhered it in place. I then adhered the solid black oval in place behind it. The three layers together form a nice solid tag base. 

4. I cut one more oval out of mauve cardstock and adhered it to the back of the tag. This offers a place to stamp/write a message.

5. I die-cut two of the Dancing Butterfly dies; one from the Jade/Jade Starstruck foiled paper, and one from the Lavender/Lavender Starstruck foiled paper.

6. Then I took my little scissors and did some snipping on the Lavender die-cut. I very carefully trimmed out the pretty butterflies.

7. I adhered the Jade die-cut piece in place on the tag base. 

8. I added glue to just the body of the Lavender butterflies and adhered them directly on top of the body of the Jade butterfly. When the glue was dry, I bent up the wings.

9. I added some sequins randomly around the oval. Odd numbers are always best.

10. Finally, I punched a hole in the top of the tag. I looped a turquoise ribbon through the hole and added a double-looped mauve bow just below it.

Here's one last look at my finished tag:

This tag would be pretty in any color, but there's something about these
foil colors against the black that make a project extra special!
