Hero Arts stamps & May Arts ribbon make the perfect pair! I was inspired by the Special Time clear stamp set to create a fun and unique round tag with glittery embossing and a festive color palette of lemon yellow, cloud gray, and lime green.
Begin by stamping soft gray cardstock with Memento London Fog ink and then sprinkle it with glittery embossing powder. A clean paintbrush works perfectly for brushing off the excess embossing powder before applying the heat. That’s where the magic happens!
Use a large scalloped circle punch or die cut to cut out the embossed clock and sentiment. You’ll also need two circles cut from patterned paper. I used the Lemon Flower Paper Stack with Glitter from DCWV. Love the happy colors and the sparkle!
Using the same punch or die cut for the sentiment allows you to trim it to size and perfectly place on of the patterned cardstock circles. Glue the scalloped circle with the embossed clock to the blank side of the other piece of patterned cardstock. Carefully line up the two patterned cardstock pieces and punch a hole in the top center of both.
Finish the project by adding a book ring to bind the patterned cardstock pieces together, and add May Arts Grosgrain Dots ribbons for the finishing touch! I need a narrower size than the 1.5” I had on hand, so I simply trimmed the ribbon to the size I needed! The ribbon will fray a bit, so add a bit of fray check or even some tacky glue that dries clear to prevent it from unraveling.
The finished tag! You can attach this to a gift or even mail it in a standard envelope. Use patterned paper with a white back if you wish to add a handwritten message.
