The Star of Light Swirly Tag

Create several tags (you’ll want a lot of these!!)

Cut your tags  4 ¼ x 2 (or 1 15/16), punch the top with the scalloped tag topper.

Dust off with your embossing buddy and then with Versa Mark stamp on the swirl. Cover with the silver embossing powder.   Emboss with the heat tool.  Be careful the tool generates a lot of heat, much hotter than your hair dryer.  

-Take a dauber and put into the ink and then gently swirl around the tag (the first place you start will have the most ink), and remember you can add color but you can’t take it away!  I’ve used a dauber on the tag on the right
-Use an aqua painter and watery ink and cover the tag with a light colored background

I like this look with Pool party or with mint or a light colored ink.

Add ribbon or twine to the top and a greeting – I used Merry Christmas with the stars but there are lots of options.

happy embossing and dauber-ing - MaryKate
