Each year for CHA, Graphic 45 asks the Design Team to make one special project to be displayed together at the booth. This year we were asked to make a tag using Graphic 45 Staples and only papers with a black, kraft, and cream color scheme.
I was told to make a "small tag" for my project., so I used one of the new Regular Tag Album Staples for my tag base.
The Graphic 45 Staples collection contains wonderful products to work with! I used eight (8) different Staples. Can you find them all?
I created a flower with the Trim and Chipboard Button Staples. I did not sew the lace flower together. I simply used Scor-tape to fold it round and then glued the button to the top!
I painted the Metal Butterfly Staples with white gesso, and then stamped over the top with French Country stamps and black ink. The butterfly's body is a Chipboard Button and Stamped Metal Brad Staples.
I clipped on some postage images with a Metal Clothespins Staples. To make the word "timeless" stand out, I rubbed the pin with white gesso, and then I buffed it off. The gesso stayed in the impression, highlighting the text.
I tucked Ornate Metal Key Hole and Key Staples among the flowers.
And that is EIGHT Staples on one tag!
I had a blast looking for the perfect papers in the color scheme, and then seeing how many Staples I could add and still have a cohesive art piece! I have to say, I really love how it turned out!
