Welcome Stampin' Friends!
I have some cute backpack tags to share with you today. We made them at my kids stamp camp a few weeks ago. I have girls and boys that attend, so I wanted to have something that the boys would like as well as the girls.
The hello kitty tag is made with a sizzix die, we had to have it, due to the obession of all things hk! The Angry Bird tag was made with punches and dies, isn't he so cute. I don't even play this game or have ever even thought about angry birds, but the boy that comes to my stamp camps loves them. So, I thought we should do and angry bird tag. I was sure you could o it with punches and I found just what I was looking for on Dawn Griffith's blog.
Here is how I made my Angry Bird...
*Body - Real Red - cut with 4" circle die, then run it through again to cut off the piece at the bottom of the body (1)
*Body - Crumb Cake - cut with the 4" circle die, glue to the back of the red 4" circle (1)
*Eyes - Whisper White - 1-3/8" Circle Punch (2)
*Eyes - Basic Black - 1/2" Circle Punch, pop them both (2)
*Beak - Daffodil Delight - 1-3/8" Square Punch, cut in half diagonally, only use one half for the top of the beak, pop it (1)
*Beak - Daffodil Delight - 1" Square Punch, cut in half diagonally, only use one half for the bottom of the beak (1)
*Eyebrows - Basic Black - Modern Label Punch, cut off the ends and glue together in a "V" shape (2)
*Top Feather - Real Red - Trio Heart Punch (retired) (1)
*Tail Feather - Basic Black - 1-3/8" Circle Punch, cut out pizza slice shapes to create the look of the tail feathers (1)
The backpack tags were a big hit! However, my youngest daughter has her own obession with Dora the Explorer and had a new Dora backpack. So, I thought we needed a Dora tag just for her. I was all set to make her with punches, found a great one on Ellen Kemper's blog. But the only problem was I do not have ANY creamy caramel card stock left! What other color could Dora be? It just so happens that my daughter took off the tag that came with the backpack and left it on the floor of my stamp room. When I pick it up I thought, I COULD USE THIS TO MAKE THE BACK PACK TAG. And I did.
I had to add the yellow bow at the top of her head, to cover the hole in the tag. So we are all ready to start our Home School Co-Op group next week and very excited too!
