Altered Valentine Tag

Hello everyone! I am back again with another Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts tutorial. Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so I decided to create a large Valentine tag to share with you today. 

This tag is 8" x 4" and perfect to tie to a gift bag or attach to a box of chocolates. It is all pink and pretty! Perfect for saying, "I love you!"

To make this tag, gather up all things pink (see the supply list at the end of the post), and let's get started!

The tag is from the Tags in a Box Extra Tag Set. There are six large tags in the set and they match the Tags in a Box Display (which also comes with six tags). Select a tag and paint the edges with Ranger Picked Raspberry Distress Paint. Allow the paint to dry.

Trim text paper slightly smaller than the tag by trimming the paper to 7 7/8" x 3 7/8" and then using the top of the tag as a guide for trimming the tag shape. Use a hole punch to punch a hole at the top of the paper. Sponge edges with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.

Paint the "you" heart from the Heart Words Set with Spun Sugar Distress Paint. Set aside to dry. Paint the "Love" word from the Words and Phrases 1 Set and a flourish from the Mini Flourishes Bella Set (not shown) with Picked Raspberry Distress Paint. Once the paint has dried on the word and flourish, cover the two items with Glossy Accents and allow to dry completely. 

Trim an image from decorative paper and mat with pink cardstock. Sponge the edges with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. Use foam adhesive to attach the image to the top center of the tag.
Glue the "Love" word to the bottom center of the image. Use foam adhesive to attach the heart to the lower right edge pf the image, as shown.

Tie a large bow from polka dot grosgrain ribbon and glue to the top of the tag. Trim a small heart doily from the Cardstock Doily Set - Intricates in half. Sponge the edges of the doily with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and tuck under the top left edge of the image. Glue a few pink flowers to the top of the doily.

Attach the mini Bella flourish to the right edge of the image and add pink flowers as shown.

Tie a bit of metallic string to a button and glue the button to the heart embellishment. Surround the heart with pink flowers as shown.

Give the tag to your favorite Valentine!
