Vintage Beauty Tags - Meg's Garden


Hello everyone my vintage tags are up on the Meg's Garden blog today, 
I love vintage tags, so today I am going to show 2 tags that I have created using strips of Meg’s garden papers with pretty vintage beauties collage images with all the gorgeous embellishments that are available at Meg’s Garden website.


When you purchase a 12’x12’ paper from Meg’s Garden you also receive a strip 12’ x 4’ of the same paper design. So today I am going to show you an idea to use this small strip to make backgrounds for tags. Cut the paper strip to the size you require and adhere to your tag. I used normal size manila tags.  Meg's garden website sells packs of various sizes.
I gently white washed the paper strip with Tim Holtz Distress Stain Picket Fence to give them a very shabby look to them and inked the edges with brown ink.
Then I decorated each tag with all the embellishments that I have listed below. Each vintage image is cut from the collage sheet; there are many images to choose from you get 5 different sized images on a 12’ x 4’ strip. Also if you can not decide which image you like, there is a Vintage Beauty pack (see more details on the website). I distressed the edges of the images and then inked around them and layered them on top of a ATC collage paper another paper repeating the same process.

These are so, so splendidly beautiful! Do you know something, I've yet to ever create a freestanding (as in it wasn't part of a bigger card or page) tag? No particular reason why not, I just haven't. I think that I really must take your lead and change that this year! :)
