Hi, Judy here today! Wow! Where did June go? it’s only a couple days until July. With 4th of July just around the corner, I put together a Happy 4th of July Tag featuring 3D Foam Stars and Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors that add shine and sparkle.
Make Background Panel
Fasten Adhesives Sheets 4 x 6in. to piece of white cardstock and trim to 4 x 6 inches.
Partially peel liner from Adhesives Sheets 4 x 6in. at one end. Attach pieces of washi tape across the panel leaving about .125 inch gap between each one. Continue to peel the liner back and fasten washi tape until the entire piece is covered. Avoid touching adhesive between tapes as much as possible.
Place red foil from Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors over adhesive between washi tapes and press to transfer foil. Continue until all gaps are covered with red foil.
Trim off washi tape ends and edges of the panel if needed to remove any areas without foil or washi tape. Cut a 1.125 x 5.75 inches strip from washi-covered paper and a 1.25 x 6-inch piece of navy cardstock. Use the tag as a guide to trim the top corner of washi paper and navy mat to match the tag corner. Fasten together using E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to apply adhesive.
Apply adhesive with E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to the back of the matted washi tape panel and fasten in place along the left edge of the tag.
Add Small Stars
Use E-Z Runner® Stars Refillable Dispenser to randomly apply stars along the right side of the tag. Cover stars with silver foil from Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors, rub to transfer foil, and peel away foil. Continue to cover all stars with foil.
Create a Large Foil Star
Remove the small star from the center of the largest stars on the sheet of 3D Foam Stars. Carefully lift the points of the large star along with the inner three stars. When all points are lifted, continue to lift the entire group of 4 stars and place them on navy cardstock.
Peel liner from the largest star, cover with red foil from Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors, rub gently to transfer foil to the star, and peel away.
Repeat for the next star using silver foil. Continue with the remaining two stars alternating red and silver foils.
Use scissors to cut around the star leaving a narrow border of navy cardstock.
Make Greeting Strip
Stamp the greeting on white cardstock and cut along the curve of the greeting and beyond to make the strip long enough to fit across the tag.
Use E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to apply adhesive to the back of the stamped greeting and fasten it to a piece of navy cardstock. Cut along the greeting strip leaving a narrow border of navy.
Attach Star and Greeting
Attach Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to the back of the large star and greeting strip, remove liners, and attach both to the tag.
Place Open Stars
Remove a medium open star from a sheet of 3D Foam Stars and attach it over the background panel near the top of the tag. Remove the liner, cover it with a silver foil sheet from Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors, rub to transfer foil, and peel away. Place another medium open star between the large star and greeting and apply the foil.
Tie Fibers on Tag
Cut 2 lengths of white seam binding, 3 silver strings, 2 navy cords, and 1 red silk ribbon about 15 inches long, insert them together in the hole of the tag, and tie a knot.
Happy early 4th of July!
