Carta Bella Welcome Fall Shaped Tag Tea Party with Reneabouquets & Heartfelt Creations Tag

Hello, Friends!  Would you like to learn how to make this adorable Carta Bella Welcome Fall Shaped Tag Tea Party in a Box?  Well, you’re in luck because that is our Throwback Thursday Tutorial this week.  I woke up wondering what to make with y’all and decided it would be fun to make a tag.  And then I thought, oooh…a tag book.  Next thing I knew I had my Heartfelt Creations Tag Album Dies, Reneabouquets goodies, mixed media supplies and pretty papers all over my desk.  That’s how the process works, my friends.  I just go where the inspiration takes me!

Mixed Media Layered Pumpkin

My favorite element on this tag is this mixed media layered pumpkin.  I started with a plain white Reneabouquets Beautiful Board pumpkin. Here’s how that came together:

  •   First, I layer scraps of  designer papers over the solid pumpkin background.
  • Then I  trim the overhang and ink the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
  • Next, dab embossing ink randomly over the paper and sprinkle with Seth Apter Ancient Amber Baked Texture.  Heat emboss.
  • Now apply Rusty Hinge and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks directly to the open pumpkin overlay.
  • Sprinkle with Seth Apter Beeswax Baked Texture and heat emboss.
  • Follow the same procedure with the fancy leaves tuck ins, only color with Gathered Twigs and heat emboss with Taos Sunset Baked Enamel.
  • Make a “nest” with Spanish moss and straw, adhere feathers, twine bow and button to the stem and sprinkle liberally with green peppercorns and mustard seeds.
  • Vintage buttons make a great accent on the domed edges.
Magnetic Flap Opening

The cool thing about this Shaped Tag Die is the fact that it can be used as a shaped magnetic closure.  I’ll show you how to do that in the tutorial.  I could not resist adding a little fall dangle charm to the spine.  Cute, right?

Here’s what the mixed media cover looks like when you open that magnetic flap.

And here’s a peek at the inside spread.  This clever die makes a great box pocket, too!

I was pleasantly surprised that I could fit all these goodies into the pocket.

There’s even a little 3  1/4″ x 4 1/4″ note card/tea wallet!  This was a very fun crafty adventure, my friends!
