Sharing a Radiant Red Junk Mail Tag Tutorial. During the YouTube Live session on Monday, Dec 31st, I showed how to take an oversized postcard and turn it into four tags that can be used for journaling or even bookmarks.

Start by selecting an oversized postcard 6 x 11 inches or you could use some ugly cardstock for the base. Adhere book pages to cover up the postcard or ugly cardstock using a paint brush dipped into an Aleene’s Tacky Glue pot. Trim excess papers from the edges or fold to the backside.
Separate the layers of a napkin. Then adhere the napkin to the postcard. Trim off excess napkin.
Spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist through the Moroccan Stencil. Dry with heat tool
Adhere red text weight paper to the back of the postcard to cover up the images or ugly cardstock.
Cut into four tags about 2.75 wide by 6 inches tall. Cut the tops to resemble tags. Then punch a hole in the center top using the Crop a Dile. Optional Stamp Shabby Stitches around the edges or sew with sewing machine to add stitches to the tags.
Apply distress ink around the edges of the tags.
Decorate the tags using the fussy cut items from the Radiant Red Digital Download. Adhere using the Best Glue Ever with the sequin trim and eyelash yarn from the Radiant Red Creative Box.
Tie the ribbon and fibers through the top hole and you are done.
