Hi everyone! It's me, Barbara again, and this time we are talking about tags. I do a lot of swaps and some of them are for tags. I have fallen in love with creating them and thank goodness I have my cricut! I also love lace and pearls so you will see a lot of that with my creations. For both of these tags I used Graphic 45's Once Upon A Springtime collection. Graphic 45 has to be my favorite company. I love their collections! Anyway on with the show.
For this first project, I used George and Basic Shapes for the tag. Behind the picture of Marie Antoinette is a purple marquee shape with criss cross lines. That is from the French Manor cart. I can't stop using it. Love that cartridge! All the flowers are made by Prima. There's a stick pin at the top to which I added a crystal bead. Not sure you can see it. Then of course there is lace and ribbon.
For the next project, I cut out the tag with the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge. Again, behind the picture is the barely seen birdcage from the French Manor cartridge. I love those birdcages. I had to use alcohol inks to dye the flowers to match on this tag. I find myself using those inks a lot lately. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the butterfly. And the button in the top I found at Joann Fabrics.
Now here they are together.
I hope I have given you some inspiration, and that you will start making tags! They really are fun!
