My First Tag

Morning everybody.  Hopefully this will go out at the right time. I always schedule my post the day before, but this is the first time I have done it two days ahead. Friday will be a very long day and I don't want to mess around when I get home.

I decided that it was time to make a tag - so here it is.


Click on image to enlarge picture.

The size is 15.5 x 9 cms. My initial thought was to make a tag for a man which is why I chose this colour. I stamped a music background stamp in Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder. You cannot actually see that unless you enlarge it. Somewhere along the way - and I really have no idea how - it developed into a  lady's tag. It is double sided cardstock so I used the reverse to add a strip to the bottom and to diecut the butterflies. I used a  Martha Stewart punch for the bottom. Then it was just a little ribbon and lace, some silk flowers held together with a gemstone brad, and a few gems.  Maybe next time I'll manage a man's tag.

Well, have a great weekend everybody.

Love from Christine xx

  1. Wow Christine, great minds think alike, I'm in the process of making my first tag too - as we speak lol.
    Mine's a Halloween one - I know it's a bit late for the occasion but mine is going across the pond to your neck of the woods (UK) to a fellow Woyww'er who is sending me something and she just loves Halloween so........

    Your tag is great, hope mine measure's up but can't show it yet.
    Cheers,
    Elaine
