ALICE in Wonderland JUMBO TAG

Hello my friends..
Today I would like to share with you my project, that I created for ALICE in wonderland MINI Loaded Envelope + JUMBO TAG swap at Gold Pro Loaded Envelope FB group and my partner Bonnie Kohane
If you stumbled up on this post first, I will encourage you to start from the 1st post about this project, which you can find here
  So now are of too explore my Jumbo tag, that moves, opes and wobbles...
Love movements in my projects - it makes them alive...
We were suppose to make 3.5 x 8.5 inch tag, that will go into our mini loaded envelope....
Well, I thought, that sticking out Jumbo Tag will look odd unless I will make it flow with tiny LE...
So I came up with an idea
I started with chipboard base of desired size and printed out images (which are digital collages created by me) fit to the size. Printed out twice....
                                                      Front                           Back

On the front of the tag I adhere my digital collage as a background. Using my second printed sheet of paper I cup out desired elements and popped up some using foam blocks, self made hot glue dots and DIY motion wobble springs + tucked on the edges extra images related to the project.
I know its allot to take in, but I did recorder tutorial on all of those elements and techniques, which I will post in the next few posts (so you are covered)...

                                                                                        here is an example of pop up

                      that is an example of motion wobble
You can't tell the difference by looking on the picture, maybe only that motion wobble sits a bit higher of the page.... But unless you know what you are looking for, you won't be able to recognize it... Only time you can see it, if you are holding it in your hands...
 Another interactive couple elements that I talked about in the video below....

 Remember, I said that my jumbo tag will be sticking out like a sore out of my mini LE...
So I strategically placed extra elements above the top line of the mini LE. I was going for effect of exposition out of mini loaded envelope...
So those staked cups are tucked in at the very top of my jumbo tag, which gives me narrower bottom of the tag to fit in my mini LE....
The same positioning technique was done for the Red Queen on the opposite side from the cups...


 Here you can see another element of pop up of Mad Hatter and Mad Rabbit and motion wobble effect on Alices legs, while she is falling down the hole...
The phrase "Follow the white rabbit" is a digital collage element and because of its narrowing towards the bottom font, it looks like realistic dimensional element...

The back of this Jumbo tag has some interesting features as well
At the base is looks like nothing, just a tag... Then you realize there is a yarn sticking out, so it must be a tag in the pocket... And you are correct! But It's not just your simple tag that you can tuck in or take out... Let go....
 Hm, you might say.. she is so inconsistent... jumping from one thing to another.... I can assure you, its all connected...
You are looking not only at the rusted gate in the garden, but a secret door as well... Lets pull that white rose/door knob....
 Oh, there is another world in there and it's upside down.. As it should according Alice in Wonderland story...
 Oh yes, there is Alice...
 oooo, hold on just a second, is she going up??? It's totally the opposite direction where she suppose to go...


LOL "We are all MAD here"

Well, what is taking place (like in any magic trick - there is a secret), we are pulling our tag up....


 all the way up till the gate entrance is empty...
 But on the top of our tag we can see Mad Hatter with his buddy Crazy Rabbit
That effect calls slider with window effect (and I did recorded a video tutorial). I will be posting it in the next few post, so stay tuned...
So that how the base of the back side of this tag was created...
Now that was too simple for me...
I added a flip open Mad Hatter, who guards the secret door to the garden, to the upside down world.. Complicated enough? Love it!




Ok, enough of playing around.... LOL (how is it even possible?)
Let get onto bigger and more 3D elements of the back of this tag....
So that's how this tag looks all finished...

 Mad Hatter is hiding the secret door from the plane view..... 
 yes, right behind his hat....
But on the top of the back side of this tag (again only top part positioning, because I need the bottom of this tag to fit into the mini loaded envelope) I added more elements: whimsical tea pot with flamingo head sticking out and a tiny mouse hiding on the top - floating in the air , like he suppose to, Cheshire cat.... OMG, I love him sooooooooo! 
 Here is a close up on that beautiful tea pot, which I just popped up...
 And my darling Cheshire cat is wobbling above watch and Down the rabbit hole phrase...
 So in all that tag turned out mind blowing (in my humbled opinion)...
Ans the project turned out absolutely fantastic!
I am very pleased with results of my creation and humbled appreciation from recipient topped it all!!

Hope you enjoyed your time with me!
