So my latest obsession is making Valentine tags. Every time I think I’m going to stop, I find a great image or read about a great technique and away I go again, making another tag. But it’s a good thing, because I want to have plenty of them to decorate my cabinet at work.
It’s hard to tell from the photo, but I added a dot of diamond dust Stickles to each of the centers of the little flowers on the heart. The swirls are made with black diamond Stickles.
The next one is my favorite so far. It was simple enough to do; an image, some wide ribbon & lace trim, paper flowers and lots of bling. I highlighted the flowers making up the heart with Stickles, but they don’t show up so well either. The embellishment at the top is made of two Tim Holtz eye pins filled with Christmas red Stickles.
I made the next one very simple. The background is a flourish stamped with VersaMark and then rubbed with chalk (one of my favorite ways to make a background) and the image is from Artchix Studio. I made the flower from crepe paper using a hole punch to create the petals, then edging them with baby pink Stickles. The words are from a book of vellum love quotes; I glued down just the top edge and then disguised it with a strip of self-adhesive paper ribbon colored with worn lipstick Distress ink.
And now I’m off to make more…I just found a free download of vintage Valentine images!
