Old Fashioned Tag


Here's a tag I put together with some snippets of cardstock, designer paper, twine and ribbon. I used a Lawn Fawn "Tag it" die set to cut the tags from vanilla and SU designer paper, then used a SU! Hearts A Flutter framelits die set to cut the small red scalloped top element. The greens were cut with a Martha Stewart fern punch and dotted with gold stickles for a little sparkle. I added a SU! sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, a twine bow, and some vanilla ribbon with a snippet of gold cord.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

Pixies Snippets Playground #258 - must use snippets

Tuesday Throwdown TT321 - make a tag

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge for December - use patterned paper

CHNC 310 - make it vintage

CHNC challenge extra for December 2016 - Christmas anything goes

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is fabulous!

Carol

Just as pretty as can be. You picked the perfect snippets of papers and your ribbon and twine kind of frame the fern nicely. Just a treasure. Have a good Sunday.
