Make: A tag for baby

I've been teaching scrapbooking techniques to some homeschooling kids for the past few weeks. Recently, I wanted to teach them how to up-cycle CDs into tags that they could personalize and hang on their room door. As I planned, I thought a sample tag would be good, but then I realized that all the tags I've made (you can see examples here, here, here, here and here) were gifts and I didn't have any of our own!

In the end, I decided to make one for baby J, since I've yet to scrap anything for him, plus the older two might end up joining the co-op session and can make their own tags if so. (It's really true, the scrap creations you make for each child progressively get lesser!)

So I covered the CD with scrap paper, stuck a contrasting strip of paper as the background for his name, and added Thickers. Then I dressed it up with a bird (cut out using the Big Shot), added bunting using bits of washi tape, and piled on some flowers and leaves and a butterfly. (I chose to add the bird, butterfly and flowers as these are some of the baby's favourite things currently.) And Taada! A tag just for the baby!

The kids had fun making their own tags, and will be making more cards and tags to sell at the upcoming craft fair. I'll write more about it next time!
