SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
- Fiskars®:Stamp pressStampsRotary trimmerAmplify™ shears
- 2 sheets 12"x12" white cardstock
- Slate blue & black ink pads
- 1/2 yard burlap
- Glue gun or strong liquid adhesive
1. Use the stamps to create a random pattern on the stamp press.
2. Ink the stamps with the slate blue ink pad and stamp an entire sheet of cardstock using the grid on the stamp press to keep the pattern evenly spaced and aligned.
3. Cut the stamped cardstock into eight 3"x2" wide tags.
4. Use other stamps from the stamp set and a blank ink pad to further embellish the tags.
5. Use a Fiskars® rotary trimmer to cut 1/4" and 1/2" strips from the second piece of cardstock. Distress the edges of the strips and adhere them to the tag in a simple plaid pattern.
6. Pull threads from the burlap to create fringe to knot through a hole in the tops of the tags.
7. Adhere a scrap of burlap along the bottom of the tag.
8. Using a pair of Fiskars® Amplify™ shears, cut 1-1/4"x18" strips of burlap. To create a smooth edge for the "petals," fold one long edge over about 1/4" and glue it in place. Starting from one of the short ends, begin rolling the strip and gluing it along the edge that isn't turned. Keep the top edge loosely wound and create small folds periodically as you roll. Glue these folds down, as well.
9. Adhere the finished roses to the tag.
