Thank You Dad

Good morning, Steph here.

There is something about a handmade gift bag and tag that lets an individual know you truly do care about them.  I know that Father's Day has just passed, but that won't stop me from using this gift bag for another occasion.  There is always a birthday!
After decorating the gift bag with assorted papers, I felt a special tag was needed, so I pulled out my Piccolo Card decor and seperated these awesome Gears.  How manly are they!

I ran the tag through my Cuttlebug with a Sizzix Embossing Folder - embossing just the top half.   I then added Adhesive around the edges of the tag and added Vintage Silver. which gave the tag a great metallic effect.  I added Vintage Silver and Mermaid Tears to the Gears which I then added to the tag.  Some Twine, wrapped around the center of the tag, finished it off nicely.

The sentiment was stamped with Clearsnap's Watermark Twinkle on some white cardstock.  Mermaid Tears was added on top and heat set - perfect!   I love that I can use these powders on sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by today.
