Hello, Friends! I have a true confession to make: I adore Petaloo products! I even adore their pretty packaging. The background colors and patterns are so lovely, I can never quite bring myself to toss them in the recycle bin. I have been saving the chipboard bases from my Botanica Mini Blossoms for a while now, and decided it would be a fun "upcycling" project if I turned them into whimsical upcycled gift tags. So I dug into my stash of coral Petaloo posies, broke out my Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime paper collection and started to play.
You'd never believe that these darling little tags started out as Petaloo packaging, would you? The wonderful thing about the chipboard bases, aside from the fact that they are pretty, is how sturdy they are. They are just the right thickness for mixed media projects, and the size is perfect for a gift tag.
I have always loved this precious images from Once Upon a Springtime. And, I super love the fact that the Coral range of Petaloo flowers are a picture perfect match for the color palette of these enchanting papers. It's so nice when products work together seamlessly, isn't it?
Each tag is built with the same basic "recipe" which I will share with you below in a Snapguide tutorial.
I left the packaging hole uncovered, so you can just slip ribbon through the top and attach to your gift. Or, string all three together to make a sweet banner!
