Spellbinders | Decorate a Tag

Hello there, today I have two tags to share with you using products from the new Spellbinders Inspired Basics Collection. The Create a Decorative Tag die comes with a base layer of a tag plus lots of other dies that you can use to embellish and decorate it. For today's tags, I thought I would use the Create a Flutter & Flower Bow dies instead. Look at the dimension on those bows!

I started off by die cutting four tags - two for the front and two for the back from the Spellbinders Create a Decorative Tag Etched Dies Set. On two of the tags, I stamped a sentiment from the Spellbinders Let's Celebrate Sentiments Clear Stamp Set using Spellbinders Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Spellbinders Silver Embossing Powder and heat set. 

I then took the Spellbinders Create a Flutter & Flower Bow Etched Dies. I cut the bows themselves from Spellbinders Cardstock. For the butterfly one, I die cut the bow from Waterfall Cardstock. For the flower, I die cut the bow from Pink Sand Cardstock

The bows themselves have two pieces - the bow part that folds over and secures in the middle with adhesive, and the tail part which adheres to the back of the bow. I then die cut the butterfly and flower using the new Spellbinders Pop-Up Die Cutting Glitter Foam Sheets. 

These are so cool as they die cut beautifully, have beautiful sparkle on them that does not shed and they are pretty flexible too. They actually would have been great for the bow part! The butterfly was cut from the teal in the Shimmering Tropics set and the flower from the darker pink in the Peony Pinks set.

I adhered the bows to the tags with double-sided tape and then adhered the butterfly and flower inside the bows with more tape. I added two Spellbinders Silver Mix Color Essential Gems to the centre of the butterfly and for the flower, I die cut the centre from Spellbinders Beeswax Cardstock and then added a yellow enamel dot to the center. To finish off, I added Spellbinders Black Twine through the top and tied in a bow.

These bows would look great on cards too but I thought these tags would look great tied on to presents/gifts. Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful day! 


  1. This tag collection is right up your street and your tags are gorgeous Michelle! I love the way the bows get created and agree the dimension is fabulous! I love also how you used the glitter foam for the butterfly and flower - they are amazing, so sparkly and really really pretty! I think they came together beautifully!
