July Tag Time

For this month's tag we go to the beach - literally, since I added sand and shells I found on the beach when I was on holiday!
To make this tag you will need the July collective and July Montage papers, a 4" x 8" tag, shells and sand, some co-ordinating ribbon, foam pads and pva glue.

Start by covering your tag with paper from the July Montage as shown...
From elsewhere on the July Montage paper cut out the children so that you can add them to the tag with foam pads to create a decoupage 3D effect...

Add a piece of driftwood to the bottom of the tag and start to attach shells using strong glue (like hot glue or glossy accents)...
Mix your sand with some pva glue until it is a thick paste then spread the glue-sand mixture over the bottom of the tag... I also cut out a couple of pictures of other children from the July collective papers and added them at this stage...


Finally cut out some of the poppies to add to the top of the tag and staple on some co-ordinating ribbon...
And you have a tag which is a lovely reminder of a day at the beach.
Happy crafting!
