Faux Mosaic Tag…

Aug 25, 2008

I’m going to try some­thing new with my blog. Each week I am going to try my best to fea­ture a fun and easy tech­nique for you all to try. This week is going to be all about cre­at­ing faux mosaics using pat­terned paper. This is a very sim­ple tech­nique that can be used on any project and with any theme.

To recre­ate this tag you will need: 1 Medi­um sized Office Tag, a 1″ square scal­lop punch by Martha Stew­art, pat­terned papers by Web­ster Page’s and Tera Leigh’s Faux Mosa­ic Kit by Ranger, 1 Flower and some rib­bon.


  • Using a paint brush cov­er your project with Faux Mosa­ic Grout; let dry.
  • Using a paint brush cov­er entire tag with Faux Mosa­ic Glue; let dry.
  • Punch enough scal­lop squares to cov­er entire tag and arrange onto tag mak­ing sure to apply Faux Mosa­ic Glue to the back of each scal­lop square; let dry.
  • Using a paint brush cov­er entire altered tag with Mosa­ic Glue; let dry.
  • Using a paint brush cov­er each scal­lop square with Faux Mosa­ic Tile Glaze; let dry.

I hope you give this tech­nique a try. I think any project using this tech­nique will cer­tain­ly be a cher­ished gift by it’s recip­i­ent.

Have fun!
