I’ve got all the instructions for creating these quick and easy seasonal tags to share with you today, so let’s take a closer look.


Deco Foil Endless Leaves Autumn Harvest Tag Set Instructions:

To begin, trim down a piece of Endless Leaves Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheet into 2.5″ x 4.5″ panels. Cut kraft cardstock panels to the same size.

Turn on your heat laminator, and let it warm up while you work on the next steps. Trim a sheet of Deco Foil Transfer Sheet that is slightly larger than the leaves toner sheet. I am using Amber Watercolor Deco Foil today, a fabulous mixed-metals color for the fall season.

Fold a large piece of parchment paper in half. Open the parchment, and place a piece of scrap cardstock between the folds. Then place the clear toner panel onto the cardstock, with the toner pattern face up. Finally, lay the Deco Foil onto the acetate, with the colored side up and the silver side down. Close the parchment.

Run this parchment sandwich through your laminator machine.

Then simply peel off the foil to reveal the beautifully foiled design.

Die cut four circles from watercolor cardstock using the medium sized die shape from the Large Circle die set. Press some brown dye inks onto a non-stick craft mat, and spray the inks lightly with clean clear water. Press the front of the die cut circles into the ink mixture, and move them around slightly to coat the entire surface with ink. Allow the die cuts to dry. Add metallic Perfect Pearls powder onto the craft mat, and spray them with a bit of water. Pick up the mixture with a wet paintbrush, and flick the brush against your finger to create droplets of powder mixture onto the cardstock. Let them dry.

Die cut and emboss leaves from kraft cardstock. Rub a gold metallic ink pad over the embossed raised areas of the design. Splatter the leaves with more of the Perfect Pearls mixture.

To assemble the tags, apply a strip of 1/2″ wide Super Tape across the top of the kraft cardstock panels. Peel off the protective liner, and then adhere a foiled clear toner sheet to the cardstock backings. Place additional strips of Super Tape onto the back of the die cut circles, and then adhere those circles to the top of the tags.

Tie twine around the leaf stems. Place 3D Foam Squares onto the backs of the leaves, and adhere them to the center of the die cut circles. Ink seasonal chit chat sentiment stickers, and place the stickers onto the bottom left corner of the tags.

Clip or tie the tags to a gift bag for a fun seasonal packaging idea. Enjoy!
