Tags ...

Hello my lovelies how are you? ... it's cold but sunny here ... just got to watch the ice ... so easy to slip out there ... but thankfully I don't have to drive anywhere ... I've just been to the dentist and later I am being taken to town for my Christmas gift from my Husband and son ... they are getting me an Apple laptop so that I can use it anywhere ... How great is that? 
So today I have a few little tags and one last bookmark to share ... using up my enormous heap of scraps ...



There's no rhyme or reason to these ... no two are the same ... just a collection of different bits and pieces ... but I like them like that ...


a couple of close ups


I love the rich red sparkly paper ... and I love the postcard print backgrounds 
they go so well with cream lace

And my final book mark ...


Also with a rich red and some Prima "Jack & Jill" paper ...
This time I sprayed the flowers with glimmer mist (TA Tattered Rose) .. from Pixie Dust Paperie
and once assembled ... I used a crimson ink pad to deepen the edges.


And for those of you who were wondering as to how these flowers are made ... 
well it couldn't be simpler ...


I used this punch ( 2") and punch out 5 or 6 ... make a hole in the centre 
and thread them onto a brad alternating the shape ... 
If you are going to spray do so first and let them dry before threading them on to your brad
Tip - I find the spray gives a natural curl to the paper 
when I leave them on top of the radiator to dry - I put kitchen paper under them
Once you have them on your brad and your brad through your card ... 
or in this case my wooden heart ... just start to squash each one 
individually towards the centre ... You can curl or fold as you wish ... 
So simple but I think they are so effective ...

That's it for now my friends ... I'm off to town ... Have yourselves a lovely day

Till soon

I have a thing for bookmarks and yours are inspirational. Loved the one with the dressform and cake tray. But this has to be my fav with the cutest dangle I've seen !
