National Pet Adoption Weekend: Who Saved Who Tags From the Scrap Drawer
Hello Friends! Did you know that February is the month when National Pet Adoption Weekend takes place? Sadly, severe allergies prevent me from enjoying a furry companion, but I thought I would participate by creating this pair of Who Saved Who Tags.
Creative ways to use your scraps
After making my larger Shabby Chic Dog Folio and Cat Mini Albums this month, my work table was loaded with little bits and pieces of paper. As you know, I’ve been using my scraps to make quick little cards. But these scraps were too small even for that. What’s the answer? Tags, of course!
Create a tag base by cutting the corners from a rectangle of leftover cardstock. This one measures about 5.75″ tall by 3.5″ wide. I had fussy cut this sweet little doggie image from Authentique’s Devoted paper collection earlier, and just layered it up with patterned papers from that same collection. A bow tied with brown plaid ribbon provided just the right color contrast for the blue tones in these papers. I topped this with natural burlap string to add just a bit more texture and a rustic feel to the tag.
I love the way this 3.8″ Light Blue Micro Gingham Ribbon frames the focal image. It’s just the right width for this petite tag. Blue hemp twine adds just the right amount of texture.
I’m a firm believer that nothing in this life should be wasted, I hope I’ve shared some ideas with you that you’ll be able to use in your own crafting. Please consider adoption the next time you decide to add a furry friend to your family. You’ll be glad you did!
Thanks for stopping by!
