Hello Chipboard Fans! I am up on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Blog today. I have created an altered butterfly tag as my project this week.
I have used one of the tags from the Tags in a Box Extra Tag Set for the tag base. The tag is large, 8' tall by 4" wide! The show-stopper is the beautiful Butterfly of Gears! I used several kinds of embossing powder and enamel to create this vintage gem!
I used more embossing powder to age the wrought iron border piece, from the Wrought Iron Set. I used some rusty-looking embossing powder to give the gears a metallic shine (Gears Shape Set). I finished off the piece by adding flowers and some steampunk embellishments.
To see how to make this project, see the Snapguide below.
Thanks for looking!
