A Beautiful Life Prima Doll Tag

Hello Everyone! Jane here today and I am going to show you how I made this tag using A Beautiful Life Papers by Echo Park, a Prima sentiment and a gorgeous Prima Mixed Media Doll stamp.

To make the tag, you will need:

A Prima Doll Mixed Media Stamp
Echo Park Beautiful life papers
Prima sentiment stamps
Paper flowers
A small wooden Butterfly embellishment
Ribbon and twine
Alcohol Markers
Pink ink 
A Tim Holtz tiny paperclip
small buttons
Stick on pearls and gems
Large tag
Butterfly punch
Eyelet and Eyelet setter

To make the tag:

1. Cut two strips pf flowery paper and add to top and bottom of the tag. Trim the top with scissors to the shape of the tag

2. Cut a panel of green heart paper the same width as the tag. Add some butterfly doily paper on top leaving a small border on the short borders. Sew around the edges and add to tag. Ink around all edges with pink ink

3. Stamp  the doll onto white card. Colour in skin and hair, shoes, top and skirt frill. Stamp the skirt and jacket on to patterned papers.

4. Cut out the doll and the clothes. Stick the clothes on to the doll image

5. Set an Eyelet in the top of the tag. Stamp the sentiment onto cream paper. Cut into a label shape and ink around the edges. Add to green paper leaving a small border. Add a paper clip and stick to tag with foam pads. Add the doll with foam pads

6. Thread the eyelet with ribbon and decorate the tag with flowers, buttons, punched and wooden butterflies and stick on pearls and gems

I just love playing with these dolls! I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial.
