And now it's time for some beautiful craft inspiration from our design team! Here we have an elegant slider tag that Anne Rostad created with our Bohemian Bazaar collection. This amazing tag would be such a great handmade gift. The bright colors and hypnotic designs of Bohemian Bazaar make it the perfect collection for tag-making! Have fun exploring all the amazing details of this sweet tag. Here Anne explains how she created this joyful work of art! Take it away, Anne!

Had so fun making this upside down slider tag with the beautiful and summary Bohemian Bazaar collection, Petaloo flowers and May Arts Ribbon. Used both the 12 x 12 collection, regular tags stickers, cardstock cut outs, chipboard cut outs and metal staples. On the front I placed a cut out from the paper collection for a pocket and placed a card packed with blue paper inside. Made a bow from May Arts ribbon and slide a chipboard cut out in. Also used the beautiful aqua Glass flowers from Petaloo. On the hanging dangle there is 2 keys and a chipboard cut out that I painted. with Antique linen Distress paint. 








This tag can be used as a card and there is place for a personal message on the bottom tag that slides down.

Used the back paper from the 12 x 12 paper pad. Made this slider tag from 3 regular tags and have a hinge between the 2 top tags so it creates a pocket. Glued seam binding inside on the top between the 2 tags and glued it to the bottom tag so it wont fall out.





On the back side of he postcard there can also be written some nice words.

Used sticker border and fussy cut the flower.





On the back side I used 2 cardstock cut outs and Petaloo teal / aquas mini Daisies and Dahlias.




More places for writing or place a photo to the receiver.






Bohemian Bazaar collection, cardstock cut outs, stickers, 3 regular tags, metal key hole and keys from Graphic 45, May Arts ribbon, Petaloo flowers, score tape and metal chain
