To Me You Are Perfect :)

Hellow peeps!

Today I will share a gift tag which I have creatd for my better half ;) It's been long since I have made anything for us and I really wanted to make him feel lil special :)

I took this inspiration while googling and added my lil extra to it to make it as much creative as I can :) Let me share the pics from where I have started....

These are the tags made from lil thick cardboard and covered with PP. 

Then I have done layers of gesso with knife and some mists with acrylic colours.

I didn't stop myself till the time I wasn't happy with the result. I have joined all the thee tags together from front to back with the help of washi tape. Let me share the look of the front tag...Once it was all dried up..I layerd with PP...The base PP is done with the help of distress ink aged technique and then the next with the blending tool technique.I have used the heart chipboard...layered with gesso and acrylic colours to pop up I have used Tim Holtz Rangers Stickles.

 Few more close ups...

Now to go ahead If I open the tag then it comes like this.... The left side has got a pocket to store a tag...I have written few things which I love about him ;)

 On the right side after the layers of gesso there;s a tissue paper and again acrylics...I have pasted the sentiment which is from The Collectibles...and gave a frame look with the help of bold colours.

Now If I open the right side...I will get this...

At the center you can find Metal Heart Charm and a lovely tag apt with the sentiment :) and on the right side again...theres a small note to add all date important to us :)

 Now if you slightly lift up the center tag then there's on memorable pic of us! Below the sentiment 'You and Me'

 One more shot...

Now Let me share the last part... I have drawn a bird on a lil thick cardboard and covered with washi tape...

I have used this as a center back piece for my tag...sentiments and Washi tape from lulupu store. Right as a base of that may find how I have joined the front twine to open and close the tag.

Hope you liked this project.

Happy Crafting!
