Happy Birthday Candles Gift Tag Tutorial

Hi, everyone!

Heading to a birthday party? Short on time but wanting to give a gift from the heart? Consider making hand-stamped gift tag like this to tie onto a store-bought gift! BrightestBirthdayCandlesTag-TeriA-TechniqueTuesday

It's a cinch to make one like with a few ink pads, cardstock, floss and the Many Candles stamp set from Technique Tuesday. Let me show you how. 

Start by stamping some candles and flames on a strip of cardstock. Using ink daubers (or cosmetic sponges) to sponge some ink onto each candle.

Bdaycandlesstep2Keep sponging ink onto your tag until the candles are completely covered. Want the colors of your candles to be a little more intense? Go back and apply some additional ink. Bdaycandlesstep3

Now take a white pen or pencil and add some additional details to the candles and flames. Dots and dashes are always a fun touch!

Trim the bottom of your cardstock panel. Stamp a sentiment on a strip of cardstock. Set it aside.

Roll a piece of floss in a circle like so. Adhere it to your tag. Also, poke a hole a top of your tag with a hole punch.

Finish your birthday tag by tying a piece of floss or ribbon through the hole.
