Let's Upcycle Some Packaging Into Vintage Tags

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Welcome to my blog, thank you for joining me today 😀

A few weeks ago I shared a circular tag I upcycled from some parcel tape I bought. There were 2 of these tags on the tape and today I am sharing with you the process of changing some packaging into a vintage tag.  I just love the shape of the hole in this tag so wanted to make sure I kept it while I altered it. 


Let's Upcycle Some Packaging Into Vintage Tags

Materials

  • I used some digital images I sourced on the internet
  • I used these images to create a collage sheet that I used for the front of the tag
  • I added some stamping to give an increased vintage look
  • I added a bead from an old necklace that I threaded through the eyelet I made


Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Welcome to my blog, thank you for joining me today 😀

Yesterday on our Facebook group Come Crafting With Jill & Gez, Jill & I we did our monthly live crafting session. We do this on the first Saturday of the month.  We set a monthly challenge and this is drawn in the live and we send a small prize to the winner.  Why not join us next time. 


We were using Sale-A-Bration freebies this month. I used the Rings Of Love DSP which is free with a £45 spend in my Stampin' Up! shop. I made the Evening Evergreen version for a blog hop yesterday and decided to make a Night Of Navy version for the live.

Stampin' For Christmas August Blog Hop

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Welcome to my blog, thank you for joining me today 😀

Welcome to another Christmas blog hop.  I am using the Spruced up stamp set and dies for this card and the Rings Of Love DSP. I really cannot stop using this paper.  I love the pattern on this sheet and thought it would make a lovely design on a bauble.
