I don't get here often enough, so I decided to make a tag that blends last week's Netting with this week's Jewelry, since they may both be present during a tea party. I've been wanting some teacup dies, but as I mentioned earlier in the summer, I'm short on a budget. Therefore, I decided once again to design my own templates to make my tag's elements.
I started off by drawing and cutting out a symmetrical tea-tag, a saucer, and two teacups. Then, I drew and cut out two different styles of teacup handles. The latter will make it easier to cut the cups and give me more teacup design options. Next, I worked on my background. I made it more interesting by adding a corrugated cardboard strip, an embossed clock face, and a hand lettered label. I traced and cut-out my teacup pieces out of a variety of prints and assembled the cups. I used some miniature alphabet stamps to label my tag, stapled a strip of thread, and taped it to the back of the upper teacup. I used foam strips to attach the teacup piece onto the tag. As a finishing touch I added a silk flower and a netting tie.
Hope you like my design. Thank you for leaving a comment and be sure I'll reciprocate by leaving a comment on your tag as well. Blessings!
