the zipper trim tag

Ever have one of those weeks that just kind of disappeared on you?

I’m sitting here in shock at the fact that it’s Friday already. I’m usually someone who creates almost every single day but I have yet to get down to my craft room. I’m really hoping for a few minutes of creative time today.

Earlier in the week before things got totally crazy I mentioned I’d be sharing some Victoria Park designs. So today, finally, here’s one. It’s a darling little chipboard tag that I created for the Maya Road booth at CHA.

I was pretty pleased with how this tag turned out. What you can’t see is that the tag is finished on the back as well with another piece of chipboard covered with patterned paper for a lovely clean look. It really makes the tag nice and substantial too.  When creating it, I used a strong double sided adhesive and adhered the zipper trim to the back of the top chipboard. The trim with tightly fit to the corners and notched to make the curves and turns.

The chipboard that isn’t covered with patterned paper is painted with Ranger Picket Fence Distress Stain. I find it’s a great and non-messy way to cover chipboard. To get a nice opaque look with the white, you may want to apply a couple coats. The sweet little chipboard crown is then painted with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint to add a little texture and shine.

















Happy Friday!
