Feminine Happy Birthday Tag with Katelyn Grosart

Hey there Southern Ridge Trading Company fans, Katelyn here. Today, I've created for you a beautiful Happy Birthday tag, that's perfect to give to that special woman in your life for their birthday. You'll want to read below as I share with you how I transformed each of my chipboard pieces to create my Feminine Happy Birthday Tag.

To start, you'll need a half a piece of the Delicate Lace Doily. Once you have a half piece of the doily, cut the doily in half again. Apply two coats of Spun Sugar Distress Paint to each delicate lace doily piece. Set the pieces aside to dry. After the pieces have dried, apply the Spun Sugar Distress Crayon to portions of the doily. Rub the crayon in with your finger. 

Pull out two Mini Wood Feathers. Apply three coats of Bundled Sage Distress Stain to each feather. Set the feathers aside to dry. 

From the Leaves set, cut out one leaf of your choice. Apply three coats of Weathered Wood Distress Stain to the leaf. Set the leaf aside to dry.

Cut out one of the Happy Birthday Sentiments from the Birthday Greetings package. Apply two coats of Victorian Velvet Distress Paint to the Happy Birthday sentiment. Set the sentiment aside to dry. Once the sentiment has dried, go over it with a Victorian Velvet Distress Crayon. Rub the crayon in with your finger.

Trace the top portion of the dress form onto a piece of patterned paper. Cut the dress form image out. Using Antique Linen Distress Paint, paint both dress form pieces. Once the paint has dried, apply Antique Linen Distress Crayon to the chipboard piece. Rub the crayon in with your finger. Adhere the patterned paper dress form piece to the chipboard dress form. 

Adhere the wire portion of the dress form to the dress form. 

Now you can assemble your Feminine Happy Birthday tag. Start by adhering the large patterned paper piece to the tag. Adhere the doily pieces onto the patterned paper. Adhere the smaller patterned paper piece overtop of the large patterned paper piece.

Embellish and add whatever else you might want to your wire dress form. Foam square the wire dress form to the middle of the tag.
Adhere the Happy Birthday sentiment to the bottom portion of the wire dress form.

To finish off your tag, add a light pink ribbon bow to the top of the tag. Your Feminine Happy Birthday Tag is now complete.
