Decorate to Celebrate DT Challenge #104: Piggy Banks' Tags

Wednesday, July 08, 2015

Hello, Crafty Friends!

It's time for Decorate to Celebrate! You can create anything 3-D. 
You may link up your projects before 11:59pm (EST) on Tuesday, July 21st to be eligible for YOUR chance to win a prize from (Rhonda).

Here's my project...I made tags for my sons' "Piggy Ball Jar Banks" celebrate their financial independence! =)


I found the lids at the dollar bins at Target and got 2 for my kids. The jars are from my mother-in-law. Since they are the same, I decided to identify them with tags...with my kids' initials. I know...B is not for Dog, and N is not for truck! =)

For the tags, I stamped and embossed a striped background in clear. 
Using gel sticks (aka Gelatos for kids) in 2 different colors, I blended them with baby wipe.
I added some more stamping.
I stamped B and N, cut them out and adhered them with foam tape.
The dog is from Boys Will Be Boys Cricut cartridge and was colored with Copics.
The truck is CTMH...I stamped it twice, once in black and then green. I cut out the green truck and adhered with foam tape on the black image.
Finally, I attached them to the jars with baker's twine.

If you're still with me...
I showed the tags to my kids and I said to B:
"I used a dog because you love dogs, right?"
To which he replied:
"No, I don't love dogs anymore...I love planets!"

Planets it is...maybe next time!!!
