  1. Following the manufacturers recommended instructions, use the stencil and the texture paste to apply a base layer to the tag. 
  2. Once the base layer is stiff enough, add a few layers of paint to match the colors of the Birds and Butterflies stack prints.
  3. Cut out a small rectangle from a print in the stack to create a pocket on the front.  Adhere it in place around 3 of the edges (leave the top open).  Add additional paint to the front of the pocket; set aside to dry.
  4. Cut out a bird from the stack, as well as 3 circle shapes.  Once the paint is dry on the tag, adhere the circles and bird to the front of the tag pocket as shown. 
  5. Use the pens to add a variety of doodles on and/or around the bird and the circles. 
  6. Cut a small tag from another print in the stack.  Write desired message and slip it into the pocket on the front of the tag.
