Always In Motion

We all seem to have that one particular friend or relative who seems to be in perpetual motion every waking moment of the day.  Here is a gift tag that reflects their personality.  Not only are the doll eyes moving but the gears on the tag make us feel like there is movement too.  Fun to make and even more fun to give away, it can double as a bookmark.


1.  Apply StazOn Studio Glaze in multiple earth tones to glossy cardstock, blend with rubbing alcohol and an InkBlusher.  Stamp image with StazOn Jet Black ink, dry, randomly continue to stamp in background.  Apply Studio Glaze directly to the image, allow to dry before gluing on the doll eyes.

2.  Stamp the phrase on cardstock,, cut out and ink edges.

3.  Die cut gears out of watercolor paper and embellish with metallic inks and StazOn Emerald City ink to get a rich patina look on the pieces.  Apply Silver embossing powder on sections of gears then heat emboss.  Set aside with the twine.

4.  Begin gluing all the components to the tag.  Tie the twine at the top of the tag, adhere the tag to cardboard cardstock.  Ink edges with black ink.
