celebrate! {lawn fawn inspiration week}

Welcome back to another day of lawn fawn's inspiration week! Today, we're showing off birthday tags.

celebrate! {lawn fawn inspiration week}

I used some of our polka paper as a belly-band on a gift box - I love the pop of color I got from that yellow print!  The tag was so much fun to make.  I actually showed my son all of the critter stamps and asked him to choose which one should become party-ready.  He went straight for the dino.  I kept the colors pretty primary (save the light mint on the banner and cupcake) and masked off every element except the party hat.  It was the perfect add-on after the project was already completed.  I stamped the greeting inside the dinosaur's body for a different look.  You see that on a lot of print-work.

Did you notice that the dinosaur's tail is cut out as part of the tag?  I channeled my inner JJ Bolton and shifted the tag around in my die-cutter so that I cut everything except where the tail sits.  I used a dinosaur die-cut to trace and then fussy-cut the area around the tail.  I think JJ would have die-cut that spot, but I was too chicken that I'd mess it all up at the very end.
