Summer In The City... by Michelle

Hello friends! We are back today with another post for our June theme - Summer In The City. This year we are focusing our challenges around music, and this one was one of Kim's dad's favourite songs. He loved playing 'Name the Band' and 'Name the Year' song games as their family headed out in the station wagon with the 8 track. 

Our June Dare is to challenge you to create anything dedicated to the SUMMER! Click the link below to listen to this awesome song.

Summer In The City

Urban Tag 

Hello crafty friends! It’s finally summer, and this project was created for the “Summer In The City” challenge. When I think of Chicago summers I think of the cement beach front along Lake Michigan. I also think of warm breezy evenings exploring the Loop. It’s one of my favorite cities and inspiration for this project. 

Here's the video link to make the tag and box as well.

Simple Instructions: 
1.) Cut 2”x 2” square from patterned or watercolor paper.
2.) Stamp footprint using watermark in. 
3.) Cover image with embossing powder and heat. 
4.) Corner punch corners and ink edges with Distress Ink.
5.) Punch a small hole at top center and attach twine.

Here's a look at the finished gift tag and boxes-

This project is super easy to recreate. I let the stamp, embossing powder, and paper do all of the work for me! I hope that I’ve inspired you to make a cool urban tag project too.

Happy Crafting!
