Let’s begin the Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial Video. Select a piece of 4 x 6 ivory cardstock and cut the corners off to give it a tag shape. Select a page out of a book I used a bible and cut it to 3.75 x 5.75 inches and trim the top two corners to create a tag shape.
Select an image from the Calico Collage Digital sheet and enlarge to 2.5 inches. Print on cardstock or print on copy weight paper and then back with cardstock. The Silhouette is a great tool to help with cutting images out, especially if cutting a lot of images. Using the Silhouette Software I duplicated the image and then flipped on so there were two views of the same image.
Apply Distress Ink to the edges of the tag and book page. Then apply distress ink to the edges of the round image and words.
Spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists through a stencil on the book page. Allow the page to dry. Adhere the book page to the tag base using ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever and the No-Clog Writing Cap.
Cut a honeycomb using Cricut at 4 x 6 inches. I created the honeycomb by using a hexagon, duplicating, then welding to create the honeycomb. Save your work when you create a new element in Cricut, saves a lot of time! Adhere the honeycomb to the tag base, cut the corners to match.
Apply a small amount of glue to the back of the 3.5 x 3.5 brown fabric and adhere in the center of the tag base. Adhere the lace on the left side of the square.
Sew zig-zag stitches around the tag base and the Calico Collage image in the center.
Apply words using the Best Glue Ever. Punch a hole at the top of the tag and pull a strip of fabric through and tie a knot.
Last, apply Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint using the Medium No-Clog Writing cap to the Calico Collage image.
This was a fun Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial, I hope that you enjoyed it and are inspired to create!
