Tracy has made 3 very simple tags using scraps of paper she had left over from creating other cards. She loves the new paper pads from Whimsy so much she didn’t want to waste any of it!

Summer Breeze and It’s a Party 6x6 Designer paper pads were used to create these tags

www.whimsystamps.com

22

Whimsy Stamps, LLC


Simply cut a tag shape or use a die, add some stripsof paper. Then rip and tear them to add texture or try a distressing tool to roughen up the edges. Add a little white gesso paint to the edged of the tag for more texture.

Tag with sentiment focal point

Tutorial How to make an aerogram? An aerogram is where the letter and envelope are one and the same. It was used during World War 2 to send secret messages. Ellen thought that was so creative and had to make a modern looking aerogram to share with all of you!

Turn to page 35 for supplies

www.whimsystamps.com

28

Whimsy Stamps, LLC


Step 1: Creating the envelope. Ellen used a plastic stencil as a guideline. You can also use an envelope score board or tear a paper envelope open and use that as a guide.

www.whimsystamps.com

29

Whimsy Stamps, LLC


Step 2: The second step was the most fun part; decorating the envelope. In the middle part of this envelope Ellen used the rectangle and scalloped frame from the “Shaker Builder Sweetest Birthday” dies. This is perfect to write your notes on. The inside was further decorated with “Playful Pups” and “Playful Pups Add Ons” and sentiments from the “From a Friend” stamp set.

www.whimsystamps.com

30

Whimsy Stamps, LLC


Step 3: For the outside decoration, Ellen used another dog and sentiment (“Playful Pups” & “From a Friend” stamp set). And the stamps from our “Handmade From Me” stamp set did make this aerogram look like a real envelope.

www.whimsystamps.com

31

Whimsy Stamps, LLC


Step 4: The last step is to give your envelope a perfect closure. For something like this, Ellen didn’t want the recipient to have to tear open the envelope as it would ruin the aerogram. Therefore, she used Velcro on every piece that normally needs glue. The Velcro doesn’t need to be expensive… Ellen actually recycled hers from a cornflake package. :)
