Parisian Gardens Tags

Parisian Gardens

Hello All, today I am sharing some tags I made for  Meg’s Garden.
Having a general clean out in my craftroom I came across a pack of vanilla tags that I’d forgotten about. We crafters don’t like to waste anything as you know, and together  with the gorgeous Parisian Gardens Paper collection from Meg’s Garden , I decided to create some tags.
The tags are approximately 4″ x 6″ and have a nice shaped top.  To begin, I traced the shape of the tag onto my chosen designer paper and cut it out. There is a hole with a fairly large eyelet in the top of each tag and I wondered how I could cover the tag neatly. Luckily I discovered that my 1/2″ punch fitted  perfectly  around the eyelet. I glued the paper to the tag and sponged the edges before embellishing.
I used images from a few different Meg’s garden paper collections to complete the tags – for a full list of products used see bottom of this post. As well as the Cut and Create sheets that come with the Parisian Gardens collection I used images from the Lady’s Ephemera collection too.
Here is a closer look at each tags:

Sorry for orientation of the last photograph – I accidentally deleted a folder containing the edited version. This is my favourite of the three.
  • Cut and Create sheets from Parisian Gardens collection
  • Lady’s Ephemera Pages
  • Spring Pastels Paper Collection
  • Words from All of the above collections
  • Flowers and leaves – Meg’s Garden
  • Ribbon  – Meg’s Garden
  • keys and metal heart –  Meg’s Garden
  • from my stash – buttons, chains, metal bicycle, inks, netting, elaborate heart, twine, bling.
What I like most about making these types of tags is that they can so easily be turned into pretty greeting cards. They would also make excellent additions to your mini albums and other vintage creations.
Thank you for stopping by today.
