July Tag with Clear Scraps~

Hi, Connie here with my July tag with Clear Scraps.   I used a couple of the chipboard embellishments, along with an acrylic tag, to create a festive 4th of July tag.

Remove the plastic film from both sides of the acrylic tag before creating your project.  Adhere pattern paper to the back of the tag using Zip Dry by Beacon.  Layer pattern paper, journal cards and stickers on the front of the tag (directly on the acrylic) and adhere with Zip Dry or use dimensional adhesive.  Shade around the tag with ink.  Add ribbon or twine to the top.  Finish embellishing with buttons and rhinestones.

Last step, paint the chipboard pieces (the star and the 4th of July word piece) using acrylic paint. Red for the word embellishment and yellow for the star. Let dry and adhere to the front of the tag.  Use Wink of Stella/clear to add sparkle to the star and word embellishment.  The tag is ready to tape to a big watermelon and enjoy!!
