Tag Love

I spent a little quiet uninterrupted time in my craft room this morning and felt like a mad scientist ....okay that is maybe overstating things just a tad. I went digging through drawers of lace and ribbons, I raced back and forth from the design table to the sewing machine, at one point I heard the echo of laughter ringing through the room only to find that is was me giggling at the discovery of long lost strand of red pom poms! 

I set out to make a giant tag that could serve double duty, as an ornate package tag or as a home decor pretty. I used tons of embellishments and several Crafty Secrets Valentine elements. I didn't really have a design planned out I just let it kinda happen!

I cut a chenille heart and backed it with paper and stitched along the edge, as you can see I love clusters of texture and color. I even added a few garnet microbeads. The Calendar header from Crafty secrets was colored in with a bit of pink using copics.

I'm not sure I will want to part with my tag, so I'm hanging it in my dining room where I can enjoy it for the next few days along with the rest of  the seasonal decor! 

XOXO Shantaie
