Tags for a Friend



Hello All,

Recently I was requested by a friend to make tags for the upcoming Holidays. I enjoyed making them and I hope that she loves them!

Here is the Christmas set that I made for her. I used a sweet angel image holding a tree from my collection of vintage cards. I added clear glitter to her dress, her wings and the tree.


This is the Thanksgiving set I made using a sweet postcard image and orange glitter!


And here is the Halloween set. This costumed cutie is from a vintage postcard also. You will probably notice that all three tag sets feature a scalloped punch. It is my favorite new toy by Martha Stewart from Wal Mart!

These tags I used are coffee dyed with vanilla and cinnamon and baked in the oven! They smell incredible! You can find them on ebay at Magic Moonlight Studio.


Lastly this set of tags will also be going along with the others!

We hope you are enjoying your weekend,

Lindsey and Twyla

Oh, the tags are so sweet, especially those last ones! I've heard of using cinnamon for the tags, but the addition of vanilla must make them smell heavenly!

I do adore these tags! "What- lovelies," my head shakes in agreement with my eyes! Oh and apologies for this late thank you for the shout-out in your September 8th blog! Puppet's birthday was on the fifth and, well, it was quite THE to-do! I am just now backtracking on my blopping, between sweeping up confetti and cake crumblies-- thank you, again, for featuring the smitchers of goodies I was able to sent your way!

Hello Twyla,
Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your kind comment. One of the best parts of blogging for me is making new friends so it is a real pleasure to meet you.
I loved all your tags- but I have to admit that my very favorite is the last set, I simply adore the wonderful little fashion diva - the face is just too cute.
Hugs,
Penny

Oh I love them all Twyla, but the lofty redhead that looks a bit like Zsa Zsa is my favourite! LOL!!
