Beautiful Tag

I love having tags on hand to add to presents instead of cards, and with all the little girl birthday parties I will end up going to I know this little beauty will come in handy to add to cute little gift we will give to the birthday girl.

I used the wonderful wood butterflies from Unique Laser Designs at the top of the tag.  They are just to cute and sweet and perfect for this little tag!  I love a plain look as seen below, but for this tag I wanted them to sparkle, but not too much.!minis/c1qag

So I first pressed the wood into the embossing medium (like Versamark) to amek it "sticky" for the mica powders to stick.  I used a pale pink color to match the colors in the tag and just used a small dry paint brush to apply the powder to the sticky wood.

The shine and shimmer is just beautiful when it is done, it just catches the light perfectly, and it will not rub off!!  There is no drying time so to make these little shiny gems is super easy and fast too!!

Tags can be used instead of cards, so have fun making some tags for a change of pace!!
