The Journey Awakens The Soul Tag

I started thinking about the McGill punches and thought what other fun way can I use the punch besides making flowers and borders and I thought why not make a dress. So with that in mind I started punching a bunch of flower petals from the Rose Punch and Basic Grey Out of Print paper pad. I covered the tag with Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap Paper and stained it using Tim Holtz Ripe Persimmon and Tea Dyed Distress Inks. I stained my ribbon with Orange Marmalade and Peeled Paint and set them to one side to dry. I added a border of the Tissue Ribbon to the bottom of the tag along with a paper border strip and attached it with the tiny attacher. I fussy cut a couple of flowers from the paper collection, added some of the Glimmer Glaze and a smaller tag that I stamped with the Tim Holtz "Lost and Found Stamps" to the top of the tag.
To Make the Dress:
Cover the "Sewing Room" dress form with paper after you have cut a "v" in the neck and cut the stand off of the form. Start at the bottom and layer the petals that you have formed to the base of the dress until you get to the waist. Tie a ribbon around the waist of the dress. Add some tiny pearl bling to the neckline and place on tag with pop dots. I added some Glimmer Glaze to the top of the dress once I had it on top of the tag.
So my challenge to you is to look at your punches and see if you can come up with a fun idea to use them in a different way. Hugs Pammejo


  1. How creative and beautifully done. I love the frills and lace look..fantabulous..Pam you are an inspiration..thank you

  2. Use of the dress forms and dresses are becoming the rage. Pam yours is so gorgeous! I like that ribbon around the waste and the fringe on the bottom of the tag. You are such a talent!
    I always like to know how crafters plan to use their tags . . ?
