7.Cut out a tag shape on a piece of Dovecraft white card stock, cover with your chosen paper design, punch a hole at the top and thread a length of Dovecraft twine through it.
8. Decorate your tag by cutting out the ‘With Love’ sentiment from the tags sheet and adhering it to the centre with 3D foam pads. Attach your tag to your gift.
9.Make a wrap for your tea bags by cutting a strip of Dovecraft white card stock, layering a patterned sheet on top, wrapping it around your tea bags and securing it with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape. Stick the ‘Autumn Wishes’ sentiment on top to finish.
This little parcel of goodies will make a wonderful treat for a loved one for their birthday or as a sweet gesture!
You could also make a nature inspired card by layering the autumn papers on your card blank. Then, die cutting a selection of leaves from the First Edition Foliage dies set and the happy birthday sentiment from the Dovecraft dies collection. Adhere these with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape and 3D foam pads to your card. Maxine has used the bunny illustration as the main topper because who can resist this fuzzy creature?
Alternatively, you could craft a mini album by creating pages with extra space for a hidden tags and layering the pages with your chosen paper designs! This would make a lovely gift to remind a friend of all the fun times you’ve had.
