MFT Creative Construction With Blueprints–Birthday Tags


With five different Tag Builder Blueprints in our ever-expanding collection, as well as the numerous tags included in our traditional Blueprints series, constructing tags to adorn birthday cards and gifts has never been easier. This month, we challenged the team to craft tags designed to celebrate the occasion we all love to craft for with designs that will be as cherished as the gift itself.

Tag Builder Blueprints do make easy work of creating fabulous tags for any occasion. Other than Christmas, birthday tags are probably the most needed and MFT has you covered in that department, too. I have a couple of tags for you today so let’s get started.

For my first one, I cut
Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and create a shaker element using Heat Resistant Acetate card stock for the window and filled with Pretty Pink Posh sequins. I created a balloon bouquet using BB Beary Special Birthday and BB Beary Special Birthday Die-namics, Ranger Watercolor Paper, Peerless Watercolors, and a waterbrush.


I stamped the sentiment from LJD Celebrate With Cake on the fishtail flag element with Black Licorice hybrid ink, added Happy Birthday Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice card stock, and popped up the balloons with foam mounting tape.

For my second tag, I again cut
Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and added a background of Happy Birthday Background stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink.


I stamped some images from LJD Celebrate With Cake for a wonky cake and added a sentiment from the set stamped on the banner die. I finished off with some crinkled seam binding and baker’s twine.

And that’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
