My First Tag!

Good morning everyone, I made this little tag for my grandson who lives in Germany, I haven't seen much of him this year with Mum having her operation, so sent him a little pressie with this attached:)..

This is the reverse side

I have really missed seeing him, and can't wait for next month as we are all going away together Yeh!! can't wait!

For this little tag I used the Art Pad Set 2 (Pre coloured - Jack, Patch & Puss) from LOTV, this has come in so handy for me, as I haven't had much time for colouring, and I love the little tag sentiments! I cut out the image and raised it up a little with sticky squares, and edged it with a jelly roll glitter pen, which doesn't show up to well. I matted some blue dotted paper from my new paper pad 'Nit Wit Collections' by Mary Fran called 'Candles and Cake' also from LOTV, and wrapped some red twine around the tag for some texture... also added a die cut star and put a red star gem in the centre... and the red heart ribbon I got from a show.
This is my very first tag, and I'm quiet pleased how it turned out! hope you like it!

  17. Hi Marjorie,
    thank you for joining my blog. This tag is fabulous.Love the colours and the image . It comes with a warning though you can get addicted to making them, once you start. lol. I think when I made my first I followed with about 3 or 4 more, and then went back to my cards.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  24. What a sweet little tag! I find tags so hard to do - can't seem to quite get the hang on how to decorate such a small space, and I think you did a wonderful job with your first tag, both on the front and backside!
