Supplies:
Tag: Avery
Floral Print Napkins: Amscan
Multi-Medium: Ranger
Ink: Clearsnap
Letter Stickers: K & Company
Butterfly: Prima
Ribbon: Details

Step One: Gather supplies.


Step Two: Cut flowers from napkin. If your napkins are more than one sheet thick, use only the top patterned layer for this tag.

Step Three: Apply a generous layer of multi-medium to the tag.


Step Four: Starting from the top of the tag, arrange the cut flowers on the tag, slightly overlapping each piece, until the entire tag is covered. Any overhanging pieces will be trimmed in a subsequent step.


Step Five: Apply a generous layer of multi-medium to the tag and allow to dry.


Step Six: Flip the tag over and trim any excess pieces of napkin so that all pieces are flush with the edge of the tag.
Step Seven: Ink the edges of the tag and embellish. I added a sentiment, butterfly and ribbon.


This tag is the perfect accompaniment to a box of chocolates, small gift or bouquet of flowers. Add a small love note to the back of the tag to brighten someone's day!
