Simple Stories Vintage Spring Garden ATC Box of Tags: March 2024 Tag of the Month Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  This Simple Stories Vintage Spring Garden ATC Box of Tags is our March 2024 Tag of the Month Tutorial.  It’s filled to the brim with pretty spring florals, cute garden images, and all kinds of shabby chic goodness.  If you love to decorate for spring, then I think you’re going to really enjoy making these mixed media tags.

This is a big project with 3 ATC tags, 2 Regular sized tags, a dressed up Graphic 45 ATC Box, and even a Tea Party in a Box tucked inside!  So it’s going to take us 2 days to complete this project.  Day One (today) will go over basic supplies and the process for making the tags.  On Day Two (Thursday) I will show you how to decorate the sweet little ATC box.

NOTE: If you don’t have an ATC box in your stash, you can use any sturdy lidded box that measures 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ x 2 3/8″.

Mixed Media ATC Tags

Graphic 45 ATC Boxes come with a set of 3 ATC tags.  These little tags make a BIG visual impact thanks to pretty floral ephemera pockets.  We’ll add some fun mixed media texture with ink, stencils, and crackle paste.  And, there are two side to these little tags, as you will see in the video tutorial below.

Vintage Garden Regular Tags

Dig in and create some sweet garden collages on the regular sized kraft tags.  Layer ephemera, flowers, stickers and enamel dots to create a springtime garden on paper.  These tags are double-sided as well, and I’ll show you how to do it all in the video tutorial below.

Please enjoy Day One of this two-day tutorial.

Even if  you don’t have all the supplies to make the ATC Box, this tag tutorial can be used to make lovely little gifts, place cards, or home decor for springtime gatherings.

I’ll be back on Thursday to share the tutorial for making the box.

This item is also for sale in my Etsy Shop.

Thanks so much for stopping by, friends!

    The attention to detail is the key with these gorgeous tags. Love the way you used the ephemera to create pockets, along with the lace, buttons, and sentiment stickers for added detail. You are certainly making excellent use of your tag stash! I too am looking forward to seeing the box tutorial. Thanks Kathy.
    We are still on holiday down south, the autumn weather has been cold nights and warm days, perfect!

    This is one of the types of projects of yours I love most, Kathy! Wish I had gotten there first to snatch it up, however, glad to see the tutorial as I have the paper!
    Happy Easter! Happy Spring! (although not spring yet in the Rockies!)
