Pleats, Folds and Tucks

Since I didn't make a tag for the "Insects" theme last week, I merged the theme into this week's tag through the use of origami.  This ancient paper art form certainly makes use of a plenty of "pleats, folds and tucks."  LOL!


I began my tag design by making an origami bumble bee using a sheet of paper that had a solid and print side. I glued some gem eyes to my bee for added interest and a bit of spark.  Next, I embroidered a flowery border along the bottom of the Kraft card stock tag base, and attached the bee above it with a strip of foam.  As a finishing touch, I tied a polka dotted strip of ribbon in coordinating colours to the top.

I had fun mixing the patterns in this tag, and hopefully you will enjoy them too.  I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with.  Have a blessed week!
