Valentine Tag

I'm guessing you're wondering why a Valentine Tag at this time of the year. Well, I wanted to make a Tag with a key & heart theme and use eyelets for a challenge and this is what I came up with.

Used Kraft cardstock as Tag Base. Used some Target Valentine scrapbook paper for Tag Layer. I used glitter cardstock and Spellbinder die. Used couple of Martha Stewart punches. Stamped sentiment on pink cardstock & hand cut the sentiment tag. Added glitter heart buttons that I had cut the backs off of. Added ribbon.

Vintage Christmas Tag

Made this Christmas Tag using a Christmas card I had received & kept from 2008. Scanned the front image &
sentiment from inside of card and printed on white cardstock.
Used Kraft cardstock for Base of Tag. Used The Paper Studio scrapbook paper for layer. Added a piece of Christmas tree from our former Christmas tree that would pieces would come off of and I put in a Ziploc bag to use some day like now. Used Tim Holtz Paper Distresser on edges for a more Vintage look. Added piece of tree with some holly and ribbon.
