Hi, it’s Beth Pingry and I’m sharing a tutorial for this flower filled Explore tag today!

Beth Pingry - Explore Tag for 3L Spellbinders Hop


BethPingry-3L-Spellbinders Hop 13

Apply an Adhesive Sheet 4×6″ to back of Denim Sheets from the Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Pennant Set, adhere to cardstock.

BethPingry-3L-Spellbinders Hop 12

Die cut with Bitty Blossoms die, run thru the machine twice, you may need to finish with scissors to cut small threads. Roll the flowers from the outside secure with Dodz 3D in the centers. Die cut and emboss old book pages with Rose Creations die – not pictured – just tear some pages out and die cut several pages at once with 3-4 different sized dies.

Crinkle and ink the Rose Creations die cuts, layer 2-3 of each size using  Dodz Medium, then add rolled denim flowers. Add glitter to center of roses to stick to the exposed Dodz adhesive. – Note: these flowers are inspired by Donna Salazar’s tutorial! For the third flower, roll 6″ of Lace Ribbon, add to top of Rose Creations with Dodz 3D.

Emboss white cardstock in Bricks & Bark embossing folder, ink with red to give the look of bricks. Tear the edges and add brown ink around edges. Trim dotted paper to fit tag, ink edges with brown ink. Add brown ink to doily edges, then adhere to tag using the E-Z Runner® Grand (see below for a giveaway of the NEW E-Z Runner Grand!).

Cut letters “Explore” with Numbers and Letters Two dies and 3D Foam Creative Sheets in black- you get both a black and white sheet in each package!

BethPingry-3L-Spellbinders Hop 9
Remove top liners from letters, rub on Brown Pigment Powder to cover the letters.
Remove top liners of 3D Foam Keys, rub on Brown Pigment Powder, remove them from the sheet, rub Pigment Powder onto back side so that both sides are covered. We won’t be sticking these down.

BethPingry-3L-Spellbinders Hop 7

Remove the letters from the sheet and adhere to the Basic Tag One die cut. Pull Organza (from the Texture Ribbons package) through the tag ends and secure on back with E-Z Runner Grand. Adhere the tag at an angle onto the doily.

BethPingry-3L-Spellbinders Hop 4

Adhere flowers above and below the tag with Dodz Medium.
Add glitter to 3D Foam Leaves, tuck under flowers.

BethPingry-3L-Spellbinders Hop 2
Cut about 10″ of Organza and tie a bow. Heat it slightly to melt the organza and create a crinkled look (short blasts of heat work best, one section at a time).

Tie keys with twine, secure onto tag with Dodz Medium, then add the ribbon too.
Pull Organza through top hole of tag to complete the tag, add it to a gift box or bag!
