Yo Yo Fun!


Hello friends!
Today I am sharing a few more yo yo tags.
 I love buying vintage reproduction fabric even though I have no sewing machine skills, so I started making yo yos.
They are super easy to make and I always knew that someday I would find a way to incorporate them into my paper crafting.
 Now I have!




I also love creating tags!
I use 3 x 6 tags or #8 size. 
They are fun little works of art!




I always start each tag by coloring the background with Distress Ink.
I then add stamps or patterned paper.

 


I recently purchased 3 stamp sets from My Mind's Eye,
 because they had great vintage designs. When I got home I was amazed!
 They are the best quality clear stamps I have ever used! And I have tried a lot! I always get a great clean image. They also aren't sticky, which I don't like with some of my others.



The 3 sets I bought are from My Mind's Eye's new Stella and Rose collection.
You can find one of the sets here on amazon. You should also be able to find or request them at your local scrapbook store.



These tags are all listed here in my etsy shop!

Wishing you all a lovely day, Lindsey

Those are great tags! Now I know what to do with that great fabric. I have some of those stamps, too, though I haven't tried them. Guess I need more!
Hugs,
