Hello Creative Embellishments friends and fans! Jenn here today sharing a fun large shaker tag.

A little story to explain this tag. The photo I have used is of my best friend of over 30 years and I at the beach. We take this same trip every August!

I have used the large shaker tag combined with a favorite Graphic 45 paper collection to create my tag.

Best Friends Border Words

I started by gessoing and painting the tag pieces.

Next I added the acetate and let it dry before filling with beads,drops, and sequins.

Next, I created a frame for my picture and adhered them together, inking the outside with a dark blue ink. I made a template of the tag back and cut decorative paper to fit. I added my framed picture and other fussy cut elements to the main tag and then adhered it to the filled piece.

The last piece of the tag was the front cover which I inked, embossed and added a jute rope to before adhering to my tag.  I used ink and embossing powder on my “Best Friends” chipboard and adhered it to my tag on the left side. To finish it off I added fussy cuts at different levels for dimension using foam and then a bow at the top!


Thanks so much for viewing my post!
