Dinosaur Tags


As a mother of two boys, Stampendous Dinosaur Stamps, Coredinations Color Core Cardstock and May Arts Burlap made for the perfect combination to make some special tags for an upcoming special occasion. A little bit rugged, a whole lot of bright and made to order for those little fellas!


Welcome to the week long hop featuring three amazing companies. You can check out previous posts on the May Arts Blog, as well as the complete line up today and for tomorrow.


These tags were so fun and easy to make. I started by stamping the Stampendous dinosaurs onto some rustic colored card stock, colored them with alcohol markers, and then fussy cut them out. I tore some kraft core Coredinations cardstock into strips and adhered them onto a Coredinations tag, then affixed the dinosaurs. The tags were finished with a mix of May Arts Woven Burlap Ribbon (so cool that you can separate the strands for an entirely different look) and Burlap String.

Here's a picture of each of them individually...

The other participating May Arts designer today is Lalo, then from Stampendous is Kristine Reynolds and Rhea Weigand and from Coredinations is Gail Linder,  Kate Nolen-Denham and Vivian Keh.

As always with May Arts Hops, there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs! Along with two spools of May Arts Ribbon of your choice, check out the following prizes:
