Tag Tuesday

I don't think I told you that I had joined Tag Tuesday hosted by the lovely Carolyn from Love

Here are my tags for Hearts (the top one) and Valentines Day. The top one was made using a small bought tag, which i covered with a faded rose pattern fabric, a pale green fabric and a dusky pink scrap. I heated some gold organza till it shrivelled slightly and added a small piece of vintage lace. I'd glued the first piece down then I stitched the rest with some simple cross stitches. I sewed the beads on then I singed the edges of the tag to give it an aged appearance and then added the ribbon bow and tie.

This one was a bigger tag which I made myself from the middle of a toilet roll, I managed to cut three nice sized tags from one roll and I have plenty made ready! Obviously you have to flatten the rolls before cutting, I just sprayed them with water , ironed them flat and left them under some heavy books. This tag started also with a vintage rose fabric glued on, then I added some scraps of red fabric, one of which is quite sparkly. I had some dried rose petals from the garden last year, I thought I could use those so I stitched them down under some fine net . I also have a little box of handmade beads that I made last year so a pink one found its way on to this tag along with some commercial little beads. I stamped a piece of calico ' roses are red' and stitched that down and added some little red french knots. I made a tassle from a variety of threads and added some beads to that. Voila!

I am having great fun making these and have already started on next weeks!

Hope you're all having a wonderful creative week
