Remember a few days ago when I said that I've been working a quite a few turtle projects lately? Well today is the day that I reveal a peek of what I've been creating.
Next Saturday is the Oktoberfest and I am furiously crafting away in preparation. One of the items that I had success with last year was turtle hats so I decided to make a few more this year. And then Marjorie Ann Designs released these wonderfully cute Warrior Turtle files - one with the boys and one with the girls. So I thought why not create some fun tags to go with the hats this year.
To create the tags I started with plain shipping tags like you get from Office Depot. Then I used the shaving cream method that Splitcoaststampers shared with us a couple years ago. In their tutorial they use re-inkers for the coloring and I simply used food coloring which as you can see works beautifully.
After the tags dried I added my turtles along with a small strip of comic paper. The turtles were done using the clipart that comes with the files and the print n cut feature on my Cricut Explore. (I still haven't figured out how to use it on my Silhouette Cameo)
Here's a pic of all 8 of the tags I created.
