Step 4

Get a lighter colored card and trim it. It will serve as the background to your tags.

Step 5 

Over the top of the card, we are going to create an envelope effect. To do that, you have to keep the card exactly the same width as your initial one, but make it a fraction shorter in length.

Step 6

Get another lighter color card and cut it to the same width as the first darker card. Add that same lovely curvy feature so that they match.

Step 7

Glue the second curvy paper first, as it will leave you with a clear indication of where to trim. It will be the one to sit on the bottom as you can see below.

Step 8

Now instead of using tape on the side to adhere the bottom part of the envelope design, I'm going to use a fine tip glue. This way it won't show any markings of the tape because mine is quite thick.

Then get your tags, make sure to trim them shorter so they don't stick out the bottom.
