Birthday Dress Tags

This week I made a few more projects with RedLead's adorable chipboard dresses. I call these my birthday dress tags.
It starts with these chipboard shapes...
Chipboard  Dresses - Bake Cookies - Small - 3 -
I covered the dresses with RedLead's beautiful artisan collage sheet...
Collage Sheet - Artisan Three - Brand New & Special Price too!
The faces came from some of their ancestor collage sheets.
I used RedLead's alteration tags as the background. For the dress stand, I twisted some wire and pounded it flat.
Afterwards, I ended up coloring the tags with acrylic paint...
Then I sewed some random stitching with my sewing machine on the left side of the tags.
Next, I taped the dress form stands onto the tags and added the embellished dress on top...
 Then finally, I packaged them up and sent them off to Stampington!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and Easter Sunday!
