Remember the sparkly doilies I used for the card and treat bag in my last post? Well, I had a portion of a doily left over, and I couldn't let it go to waste! Here's what I did with it:
I used a small tag die (not sure of the manufacturer at the moment, but I think it could be Sizzix) to cut out two white tags.
I cut my doily scrap in half and added each half to a tag. Each piece was just big enough to cover the major portion of a tag.
I added one of the little yellow flowers that I had used on my previous project and a yellow ribbon. Then I added some liquid pearls in the center of each flower and a couple of left-over leaves. My centers got a little "gloopy," but since this is just a tag that will be thrown away as soon as the package is opened, I didn't feel bad and decided to leave it as is.
I searched through my stamps and found a Fiskars "for you" stamp that fit perfectly.
This was such an easy project, and I felt good about not throwing away a single scrap of that pretty doily. These will be perfect for my granddaughter's birthday gifts!
I know I haven't been posting much lately, but I've been trying to catch up on other things after a four-day trip to visit my three sisters. Luckily, they all live within 45 miles of each other, so I can see them all in one trip.
My youngest sister is also a cardmaker, so it was fun to spend a few minutes in her craft room looking at her most recent creations. She does beautiful work and is an inspiration to me!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
