RC Blog Hop - XOXO


Hello! It's the 8th of the month, which means it's Reverse Confetti blog hop time! :) Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought it'd be fun to create a little treat and tag combo.  My daughter is obsessed with cats, so I used just about every Confetti Cut known to man to create this little critter! :) Haha... Okay, so I didn't really use *that* many, but I did end up using about 8 different dies to create the kitty for my tag. :)

To create my tag, I first started by die cutting my tag base using the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts on coral CS, then topping it with a piece of gray CS die cut with the Big Stripes Tag Layer Confetti Cuts.  I then used the Hang Ups Too Confetti Cuts on a piece of white CS and adhered the die cut to the tag base.  Next, I used the XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts on white, pink and fuchsia CS to create the heart strip and XOXO sentiment.  The heart strip was attached to the tag front leaving a little room on the left edge to adhere the sentiment.  Once both pieces were attached to the tag, I then went back and glued in all the little white hearts.


Next up, my kitty. :) The cat body was created using the Hanging Out Confetti Cuts on a piece of dark gray textured CS.  I then used the Double Panel Circles Confetti Cuts on light pink CS, trimmed off the top and bottom of the die cut, then adhered it to the cat base to create a collar.  The bow was then die cut using the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts on fuchsia CS and adhered to the cat.  Next, I started working on die cutting all the pieces for the cat's body and face.  The whiskers were die cut using the Office Edges Confetti Cuts on white CS.  The cat's nose was created by die cutting a heart using the Layered Snowflake Confetti Cuts on coral CS.  The ears were then created using the leaf die from the Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts on gray and fuchsia CS and adhering the pieces together.  The eyes were created by die cutting the smaller open circle from the Tag Me Confetti Cuts set on black CS.  The furry accent pieces were created using the pumpkin's eyes from the Halloween Bits Confetti Cuts set on light gray CS.  Once all the pieces were die cut, I then assembled them together using adhesive.  To finish up, the cat die cut was adhered to the tag front using foam tape, then attached to the small chocolate gift using a coral satin bow.

Whew! A lot of little steps to create that kitty, but it's so worth it because I just *know* my kiddo is going to love it. :)
