Whenever there is a 5th Friday in the month, we celebrate with Tag Friday over at A Vintage Journey!
First I gathered supplies I wanted to use to create my tags. Critters Dies, Tag Sale Quilted die, Nestability Egg die (discontinued), Wall Flowers Paper Stash, Gold Gansai Watercolor paint, Happy Easter sentiment stamp and die from A Good Egg by Waltzingmouse (retired), Distress Inks in Gathered Twigs, Spun Sugar and Weathered Wood.
To create an aged vintage look, I sponged the edges of the patterned paper and tags cut from Rustic Cream with Gathered Twigs
I die cut the bunny head from both blue and pink Kraft Core-dinations, sponged the edges with Gathered Twigs and assembled the pieces.
I die cut eggs out of Rustic Cream card and sponged them with either Gathered Twigs, Spun Sugar or Weathered Wood. I sponged the edges of the eggs with Gathered Twigs then flicked water on them. They look so pretty - I love just looking at them!
I loosely painted the edges of the tags and patterned papers with Gold paint, then splattered some on the eggs and papers by flicking the paint brush over them.
So then I adhered all the pieces together - popping up the bunny head and sentiment banner on foam dots. I brushed over the bunnies and the sentiment with Clear Glitter Wink of Stella - so there is a little shimmer IRL (doesn't show in photos)
I added bright satin ribbons to the top and a square of patterned paper to the back to give it a finished look.
The most time consuming bit was putting all the pieces of the bunny heads together!
They look so pretty all laid out!
I made a total of 11 tags and will hopefully sell most of them at my church Easter sale.
The tags can be tied on the handle of a basket, placed inside a basket, or given as a card by itself!
So please hop over to A Vintage Journey and be inspired by all the beautiful tags the Creative Guides have created this month! We'd love for you to link up a tag that you've created recently as well!
