Tag, tags and more tags
Vintage...valentine...I love it! I wanted a simple quick project - tags fit the bill! I didn't want to go buy shipping tags, so I made my own with my Sizzix Tags die and SU!'s Very Vanilla cardstock. I even made my own "reinforcements".
I love the collage effect. This would be great on a smaller scale as a Simply Adorned locket insert! I made eight tags total, distressing three of them by wearing down the edges and...gasp...spraying with water and crumpling! Some red ink did bleed a little bit, but it really enhanced the distressed look of the tag.
I think these turned out great! I believe I am going to use these as tags for Valentine Day treat bags. If I do, I'll be sure to take pics of that project! I could even flip them over and journal on the back...using these for a scrapbook page. You'll probably see these pop up on a project soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
