Vintage Gift Tag

  Hello everyone!  I’m back with another paper creation...  I made this pretty gift tag for my music teacher to go with her end of term gift.

Cards and gift tags made with vintage scrapbook paper are just gorgeous.  I love to tear, distress or chalk my cards to make them look more old fashioned.

For this gift tag, I cross stitched a little heart motif as the ‘image’.  Cross stitch is quite vintage looking and the paper I used gave the card a beautiful timeless appeal.  The small brown button just adds a 3-D effect and finishes it off.  I just love how it turned out…












 I would like to take part in the following card making challenges…  It is lovely to revisit certain challenge blogs and see how they’ve changed and grown over time!  It brings back such happy memories to leave my name in the subject line again…
