On Monday I shared my fall inspired leaf tags, made using real leaves.
While they were fun to make, the wheels of creativity kept turning…
So, I then moved on to some shabbilicious leaf tags made using pretty papers.
How to make paper leaf tags:
1. I simply traced around a couple of real leaves, (directly onto scrapbooking paper) to get an authentic leaf shape and then cut them out using sharp scissors.
2. I then used my tack hammer and eyelet punch to add eyelets to the base of each leaf. This makes it easier to attach a string hanger or ribbon.
3. I used a 0.3 black Zig pen (or fineline Sharpie) to add a personal message.
Tip: If you are unsure what style of lettering to use, perhaps try and copy a font you like. I wrote the ‘happy birthday’ freehand and I quite like the imperfect handmade look of it.
There is an alternative for those of you who feel nervous about your hand writing or ability to hand letter…
Try printing a message directly into scrapbooking paper using your computer and printer. Then trace a leaf shape around it and cut out.
The free font I used here is Candlescript.
Imagine the possibilities…
The paper tags could be tied around a candle, tucked inside a card, attached to a gift, or even used as a pretty sign to hang on ribbon from a hook or door knob.
My mind is ticking over with so many ideas!
I hope you too feel inspired by these shabbilicious paper leaf tags!
Happy crafting – Kerryanne
