Hey everyone! Drea here with a fun set of tags made with the Graphic 45 (Penny's Paper Doll Family) I Want It All Bundle
. I used the friends around the world paper dolls, but most from the collection will work.
Each doll is able to access his or her costume with accordion fold tabs along the centers, with a smaller outfit, cut from the 8 X 8 Paper Pad, hidden underneath.
- White Cardstock
- Postmark Stamp (Optional)
Cut white cardstock to measure 4 1/2" X 7 1/2". Cut triangles off the top by measuring 1" from the tops and sides, and draw lines at an angle connecting them. Color the edges with Distress Ink. For the Scotland tag, which I'll be demonstrating for the rest of this tutorial, I used Peeled Paint
Choose two papers from the bundle, and cut at 3 1/2" X 4". If stamping the postmark, pick the lighter color to go on top.
Using the white tag as a guide, measure and draw line 1/4" from top of paper to get the correct angle. Cut triangles off the top.
Use Distress Inks along paper edges (Tea Dye and Peeled Paint), and adhere to white tag.
Stamp postmark with red ink, and add stamp from papers or sticker sheet.
Add button from the Chipboard or sticker sheet to the top of the tag.
Cut paper strip to measure 4", ink edges with Distress Ink (Fired Brick
), and adhere over top of the center line. Cut another strip to measure 3" and score two lines at 1". Ink edges again, and accordion fold it.
Use scissors to fussy cut the paper doll pieces. Use X-acto knife to cut slit in hat, and glue to head.
Take 3" strip and glue 1" of it to the back of the boy right above his wrist. It's best to line up this piece with the straightest part of the body, which is why I placed him on the right, unlike the others.
Glue boy to the tag, lining up the strips. Use Scor-Tape
to adhere his outfit to the front of the accordion fold.
11. Glue smaller outfit to the left. Make sure when you fold the larger one over it, that it covers it all.
12. Glue dog and Scotland tab. Cut solid green paper to measure 4 3/4" X 7 3/4", cut top triangles, and adhere to the tag to matte it.
Here's some close ups of Spain and Netherlands!
