Steampunk Debutante Tag Tutorial for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts

Hello, Friends!  I’m thrilled to be guest designing for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts again today! When I found fabulous Steampunk chippies in my goodie box from Gypsy Soul, I knew just what I wanted to do with them.  I hope this Steampunk Debutante Tag tutorial will get your creative juices flowing, too.

I love all the colors and dimension and whimsy on this heavy weight tag.  The chipboard base is incredibly thick and strong…so much so that I decided to add a little waterfall folio to the reverse side.

How fun is that?  You can display this as home decor, and load your favorite photos and journaling on the back side.

This tag is loaded with gorgeous chippies and fun details.  At first glance it may look more complicated than a project you’d like to tackle.  But like the old saying, “Yard by yard, life is hard; inch by inch it’s a cinch,” following the easy steps in my Snapguide tutorial will break things down and make it easy!

Foam dimensionals are a girl’s best friend, and they helped me add loads of depth and dimension to the design.

I hope you’ll give this Steampunk Debutante Tag Folio a test drive.  Here are links to the chippies I used in its creation:

      Hi, Patricia! They are Prima Junkyard findings. I listed them in the supply list, I think. I found mine online at JoAnn’s, but they’ve been out a long time so they might not still be available there. I love them, too! Thanks for stopping by!

    Fabulous tag and chock full of goodness, Kathy. I think the pocket watch is my favorite! This is truly a fun one! I don’t know how you do it, but I’m so glad you do! 😉
    Hugs,

    Hello Kathy …
    serious internet problems are keeping me from being able to post very often, but I have internet connection right now and thrilled to be looking at this FAN-DABBIE-DOZIE post of yours. I adore the Steampunk tag, so much so that I’ve vowed (to myself) that I’m going to have a go at making my version of one like it. It’s a true work of heart Kathy. Well done, you clever thing.

    I got your email and will reply. (asap).
    Sending love ~ Cobs. xxx

    Wow! This is sooo cool, Kathy, and your step-by-step certainly makes it look far more manageable than all the beautiful detail would indicate. Just one question–when I went to the link for the XL Decorative Chipboard Tags, it actually links to the X Large, which is 8″ (approx) long. I’m thinking the link should go to the Super X to get the approx 11″ long tag. I could be wrong or missed something along the way. Just thought I’d run it past you. Have a super day, my friend and thank you again for sharing your incredible talent!
