Creating a Fun Layered Tag with Maker’s Movement

I am sharing how I made this layered tag using Maker’s Movement products. The dies, the stamps, even the die cutting machine are all from Maker’s Movement. I like the different patterns of the paper layered on top of each other. The tag die set comes with a variety of different sizes, I used the three smaller dies. This tag would pair nicely with a gift from the kitchen for someone special as well as a great way to say thank you with an edible gift!

To finish off the tag, I added a sheer ribbon and used a white paint pen to fill in the icing on the cupcake and a black marker to add cute quote marks around the saying.

How to DIY a Decoupage Plate

Learn how to mod podge a dishwasher safe plate.

I have been influenced by Jill Barnes-Dacey’s decoupage work. While mine is nothing to the level of her work, I have been following her for a while in awe. This decoupage plate uses three different materials for imagery; tissue paper, computer print out, and silver leaf. I started with a vision for the plate although it did develop as I worked. I am happy with the final result and enjoyed the work so much I can foresee additional pieces in my future.


The decoupage plate is a part of a monthly blog hop with the designers at Designer Connection Crafts. For the month of June, we are working with any brand of decoupage. Go check out all the different tutorial at [decoupage]


  • rubbing alcohol
  • paper towels
  • paintbrush
  • glass plate
  • flower print
  • Scan n Cut machine
  • silver leaf
  • Dishwasher safe Mod Podge
  • Best Glue Ever
  • decorative tissue paper
  • craft knife


Clean off the back of the glass plate with rubbing alcohol.

I taped my computer print onto the Design n Cut mat because my mat isn’t as sticky as it once was.

Using my Scan n Cut, I set it to cut out the flowers. I chose the one that fits the bottom of the plate’s center.

I used dishwasher safe Mod Podge for this project.

I attached the flower first.

Then I used the Best Glue Ever to attach the silver leaf.

Here is the silver leaf completely attached. 
If you would like more details on how I applied the silver leaf, you can do so here: [silver leaf]

ScraPerfect is having some technical issues with their blog right now, here is the video for applying the silver leaf:

The final step was placing the tissue paper with Mod Podge.
I chose to use torn pieces of tissue and layered it a few times.
I also placed it over the silver leaf to seal in and protect it.

Once all the tissue paper is applied, I used a few layers of Mod Podge to seal.
Once completely dry, I cut off the excess tissue around the rim with a craft knife.

Follow the directions on the Mod Podge bottle
for drying requirements before use.

The final result.

Learn to Make Easy Fashion Earrings

Learn how to make these easy fashion earrings using the new Mini Maker from Maker’s Movement. I love their earring dies, making jewelry is so easy using them. There are a variety of different sizes but today I am using the teardrop die that comes with the Mini Maker. In fact, all materials except my pliers and paint pen came from Maker’s Movement.

This is the new die cutting machine, the Mini Maker. It is a perfect size to sit on your desktop.

I am a part of the Maker’s Movement design team. I receive products in order to post and create with their products.

Before we start on the earrings, I want to walk you through the new Mini Maker.

And now for the video tutorial making the fashion earrings: (includes a special appearance by Happy the kitten – who doesn’t want to leave!)

I gave this pair of earrings to my daughter to go with a red dress she just bought. So, now I need to make myself a pair. Thankfully it takes little time and is very easy to do!
