January 2024 Tag of the Month Tutorial with Spellbinders Wax Seal and Reneabouquets
Hello, Friends! It’s a brand new year, and I’m here to share my January 2024 Tag of the Month Tutorial with you, Y’all asked for a monthly tag tutorial, and there’s no better time to kick this new series into gear. I hope you all enjoyed the little break we took between Christmas and New Year’s. We had lots of festive family gatherings, loads of good food, and I even managed to sneak in a little nap here and there. But now it’s time to get back in the rhythm work and videos and blog posts and all the rest. I’m excited about all the fun things I have planned for us in 2024!
Photoplay Midnight Garden
I’ve been waiting to share this gorgeous Photoplay Midnight Garden paper collection with you for quite some time. It was released in late autumn of 2023, and I was already up to my elbows in fall and Christmas crafting, so I didn’t get to share it with you. But it’s the perfect choice for this first tag of 2024! The base is a Graphic 45 Large Ivory Tag. Liners are cut with the Large Tag Dies.
Dressed up with flowers, Glitter Glass Dragonfly and April in Paris Doily from Reneabouquets, this tag has such a wonderful vintage vibe. You’ll learn how to put the tag together step by step in the video tutorial below.
Spellbinders January Wax Seal of the Month
Have you discovered wax seals yet? I was first introduced to them when I was helping our daughter with her wedding invitations last year. They are so much fun to make, and add a great textural element to any project. So when I had a chance to sign up for the Spellbinders Wax Seal of the Month Club, I did not hesitate! You’ll learn how to create this pretty wax seal in the tutorial, too.
A Tag with Two Faces
Do you know how January got its name? In Roman mythology, Janus was the god of beginnings. He had two faces: one that looked back and one that looked forward. ( Yes, I was a mythology nerd when I was about 10 years old.) The month of January is named for him. So I designed this month’s tag with two “faces”, if you will. The front side is a pretty decorative tag, but the back side features a double pocket and flap element. Surprise!
Two pockets give us lots of room to tuck in little treats, which is something I always try to do when making a card. Create the double pocket with a Graphic 45 Regular Ivory tag and a scoring tool. It’s fast, easy and makes for a great surprise on the back of the tag.
