In a previous post, I've shown how I've made my own washi tape, in a good number of colors and patterns such as the following you see here.
You can easily make your own as well, following a wonderful tutorial HERE, by Jennibellie... But for my tag, today, I chose the pink print tape I made, shown below.
Here is my tag, finished, and where you'll see the washi tape bordering the left side. The vintage image of a woman dressed in her Easter bonnet, can be found at The Graphics Fairy.
I made the rose myself, from paper. From there I included a paper doily, silk flower violets, buttons, pearls and lace, and finally a pretty pink bow made with seam binding... But at the top, you see I made a very unique heart shaped hanger... And here's a little recycling idea I hope you'll like! Can you tell what it's made from?
These are the little hooks that a pair of socks might hang from, when displayed at the stores we buy them from! I used E6000 glue to adhere two hooks together, to form the heart. (the widest ends overlapping, with the holes aligned, and glued upon each other to form the bottom of the heart) Then I simply applied some Diamond Stickles, and added the little violet to the bottom to pretty it up! So sweet, and who would ever think socks when they see it, right?! Little hearts like these would make beautiful embellishments on scrapbook pages or cards too, I think, so remember not to throw these little plastic doohickeys away!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
