Art Instructions:

Cut (5) 10” squares of iridescent wrapping paper (note: this paper was originally a pink/yellow color).Rub a different color of the Ancient Page inks over each square then buff lightly with a paper towel to remove the streaks. Cut 1 inch strips from 4 of the colors and fold each strip in half lengthwise. Place the strips according to the Iris folding pattern in the book and tape together (the side you are working on will become the back side). Using the tag template, cut the smaller tag shape in the center of a 5 ” x 3 ” piece of the lime sparkle c/s. Discard tag. Trace and cut a larger tag shape around the tag opening on the same piece. Attach Iris folded piece behind the tag opening as shown. Edge with the blue marker. Punch a ” hole in top of tag. Punch another ” hole in a scrap of the wrapping paper, then punch a ” hole around it to make the reinforcement for the tag. Attach over hole in tag. Thread the cord and fibers through the hole. Attach tag to the remaining square of inked wrapping paper and cut around the tag. Attach to a 6 ” x 4” piece of teal c/s and cut around the tag.

Attach a 4 ” x 6 ” piece of lime sparkle c/s to the front of a 5” x 6 ” card made from the same teal c/s. Attach tag to the left side of card front.

Stamp fish three times on the rough side of the shrink plastic with the Stazon black ink. Stamp Reflect in the same manner except on the SMOOTH side, leaving enough room to trace a tag shape around it. With the black Sharpie marker, draw some waves on the shrink plastic. Cut out all pieces and color on the rough sides using the pencils. Punch a ” hole in the top of the tag. Shrink using a heat gun or toaster oven. Edge the tag using the black Sharpie marker and thread a piece of the cord through it and attach to the fibers on the large tag. Attach the shrink plastic pieces (shiny side up) to the card front as shown using an aggressive adhesive (like red liner tape). Punch some holes out of scraps of the inked wrapping paper and glue to card front to make bubbles.
