Tutorial Tuesday - Fun with Fusible Webbing

Hi! Dana here today sharing a fun tag tutorial that features Lindy's Stamp Gang Fusible Webbing, just one of the fantastic items included in the September Nesting Components Mixed Media Kit.

I have several jars of ribbon, lace and fiber pieces of various length, many of which are smaller pieces that I have trimmed from the ends of bows or other projects that I just can't throw away. I've finally made use of some of them with the help of Fusible Webbing, creating a funky, colorful background for my tag.

Step One: Select ribbon, lace and fibers of different lengths and colors and arrange them over the top of one of the kraft tags included in the September Nesting Components Mixed Media Kit.

Step Two: Take one sheet of Fusible Webbing, fold it in half, and lay it on top of the tag. Gently apply heat with a heat gun until it begins to melt. Press down on the webbing during the heating process to help fuse all of the fibers to the webbing.

This is what my pile of fibers looked like after heating. I didn't melt the webbing completely because I wanted to be sure that my background would hold together.

Step Three: Flip over the pile of fibers, apply glue to the tag and press the fibers onto the tag. Let dry.

Step Four: Embellish the tag to finish. I selected an image from the September Nesting Components Clip Art Sheet. I stamped the word "nest" with the Perfect Alphabet Clear Stamp Set and Memento Rich Cocoa Ink.

I adapted this technique to fit my supplies from a similar tutorial published in Roni Johnson's Collage & Altered Art.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
