We'll all need a few thank you cards and tags after Christmas so here's a way to use up some of those patterned paper scraps you have hanging around, you know the ones, too small for a major project but too big to throw out.
The tag is stamped with a script stamp Old Letter in purple, the smudges are part of the stamp...honest! The word thanks is from the Butterflies set, this has four beautiful butterflies, all different, stamped in black.
This glue pen is a permanent adhesive when used while it's blue but when it is allowed to turn clear it is a repositionable glue. It is best to work one foil colour at a time, draw the glue on and leave to go clear, lay the foil over the glue with the pretty side up and press gently, remove the foil sheet and repeat as required. You only need to accent the markings with foil as its already patterned.
Cut out the paper butterfly, you won't need to cut round the antenna as the butterfly on the tag will provide those. Using the glue pen stick just the body of the paper butterfly over the blank one. Put a foam pad under each wing, close to the body, this will make the wings stand up slightly.
All that remains is to add ribbon, this ribbon was white before it was coloured with an alcohol pen to match the foils.
