Time for tags again.
This time Little Red Riding Hood.
I always loved her spirit.
I started with shipping tags.
Aged them with a splash of red ink, a spritz of walnut ink, a light spray of red dye, and finished with daubs of brown distressing ink.
I wanted an aged leather look.
Dismantled an old junior dictionary with large print and yellowed thick pages.
Cut them into rectangles the size of the shipping tags.
Then I ran them through the crimper!
Never heard pf a paper crimper?
Make sure to go visit Christina at i gotta create for her wildly original ideas for crimped tin foil projects.
After seeing all the wonderful projects she made, I had to have one.
The crimper corrugates the paper.
The Little Red Riding Hood image is from The Graphics Fairy.
I used just her head and attached a graduated stack of the corrugated dictionary pages.
I used distressing ink on the edges of the pages.
Then I Mod Podged the girls onto the shipping tags.
Applied two coats of Mod Podge over the top of everything.
The tags turned out to be too dark for me so I white-washed the areas around her head and the book pages.
The back has a simple "Hey There Little Red Riding Hood".
White-washed the back also.
Used leather for the ties.
She looks quite happy.
The fronts and the backs.
