An Amazing Card Makers Gathering

Hello friends,

I'm back. Today was awesome!! I finally met the card maker friends. We spent wonderful time together. First, we put our own goodies into a plastic bag, prepared by the store. Wow!! Then, when everybody was there, Evie explained and taught how to cover the small suitcase and embellish it. She even taught us the flower embellishment. I myself taught them how to tie the ribbon using the small carton. Easy peasy. 

Now, just take a look on the pictures. They tell you the story.. Enjoy..

 Insert my goodies to each bag based on the name.

Flowery Tags - Tutorial

Hello friends,

Today, I'm going to have a card maker gathering in MSI store in Serpong, Tangerang. It's very far away from my place. I need to take 3-hour train to Jakarta. Then I need to take 2 times of city train around 1 hour and half an hour by taxi. 

We all had planned this gathering since more than a month ago. We were so excited. We were 31 card makers from Jakarta, Cirebon, Semarang, Surabaya and Bali. And we promised to swap for the goodies. So I decided to give each of them 2 bunches of twines. To accommodate the twines, I made the tags. Here is the tutorial.

Cut a tag. I used a die cut from Tim Holtz. So pretty tag.Then adhere a pocket in the front part. When you measure the pocket, make sure to add some cm on the sides and below. See the tags below.

 Punch pattern paper with different colors with border punch. Adhere on the upper part of the pocket. Here, I used Martha Stewart punches.

Then cut a small paper to emboss the sentiment. Below, I used Spellbinder die cut. Then I used the sentiment from Hero Arts. Embossed the sentiment with some glitter.

Prepare the twine, laces, a circular paper, and a small ring. Here, I made a ribbon using 1 lace. Then, tie the lace ribbon and the other ribbon with the twine. Ring the circular paper on the twine. See the picture below.

 Adhere the leaves and the flowers as you wish.
Here, I used MFT die cut to make these beautiful daisies. I adore this Canson paper.
Adhere the monogram on the circular paper. See the picture below.
Voila!! Insert the twines to the pocket. Done!

It's so easy that I gave this tutorial to P3-P4 students in my craft classes.

Take a look these pictures:

How about you? It's easy, right? Since this is so easy, why don't you join the monthly challenge in my Facebook Account. Just add: Dwita's Crafty Crafts.

Hope you enjoy the tags. Hope my friends will appreciate the tags I made. I wonder what they made for me.

I'll be back..
