Summer Tag

I’m excited to share a real quick and easy project using mostly the new Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products! This tag can easily be converted into a little home decor banner to celebrate summer!

To create the base, I used the Pennant Set Canvas Flag (I frayed the edges a little for interest). Then I trimmed the Pennant Set Denim Sheet to frame the base. Tip: Use a dedicated pair of scissors for fabric…makes the cutting so much smoother.

Since I’m a NO SEW gal, I used Extreme Double-Sided Tape – 1/4″ Permanent from our newest Home & Hobby by 3L® offering. The Extreme Double-Sided Tapes are our strongest tapes. They are clear, permanent, and extremely tacky craft tape for use on multiple surfaces. I adhered the denim sheet and Lace Ribbon 1″ Crocheted Lace Trim on the top edge of base.

I cut in half width-wise Denim Ribbons 1″ Dark Denim Ribbon with White Stars and tied into a thin simple bow. I centered and adhered with Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium on the Lace Trim on top.

To accent and give dimension to the project, I colored 3D Foam Stars one each of the largest and smallest stars with Pigment Powder – Gold. You only need a little for it to go a LONG WAY. Tip: I used the powder that was inside the lid to color each star. Beautiful shimmer and color!

I assembled all the pieces, starting with the largest 3D Foam Stars in the center, then my little 2 x 2″ card which I wrote “2015 Summer Fun!” and added the embellished small 3D Foam Stars. I adhered the card with 3D Foam Squares – Black, Regular.

Lastly, I used Dodz™ XL to secure my Denim Ribbons ⅝” Dark Denim Ribbon with White Scalloped Edges to use to hang off the neck of my soda bottle.

Here is another look…a nice way to dress up the bottle for a summer gathering which is where I will be taking this tomorrow!
