What a great idea... for the first Make it Monday challenge of the new year, Nichole Heady linked up all 46 MIM challenges that she has posted over the past year, so that you can choose any challenges that you might have missed the first time around. So is it lame that I picked the very last challenge, #46: Folded Tag from Any Die? LOL... I tried to complete #46 the week it was posted, even started it, but the week got away from me and I never finished it. Since Ryan's 11th birthday is next week, I decided to make a fun little folded tag for a birthday gift.
I used Mat Stack 5 as the die to create the folded tag in white, and then cut it again in Aqua Mist for the base of my tag. I cut Mat Stack 2 Layerz in Canyon Clay, and a Limitless Layer in Hawaiian Shores. I stamped with BB: Circles, and used Modern Basics to add a little pizazz to the tips of the MS2. I really wanted to use one of the images in the cute new Tremendous Treats: Valentine, but I masked off the little heart since it is a birthday tag... and let's face it, I'm pushing the boundaries of allowable cuteness for an 11 year old, as it is! ;) LOL! I colored the sweet little dino with Copics and added the "celebrate" from Tag-Its 4 and finished off the front with a button and bakers twine.
On the inside, I wanted to mimic the cute "dino-mite" sentiment from the original Tiny Treats: Valentine, so I used a carefully masked-up sentiment from Make a Wish for the "hope your birthday is", and spelled out "dino-mite" with Fresh Alphabet.
I hope my
big boy likes it! Thanks for looking! :)
