For this batch of tags I pulled out the new Friendship Blooms dies from TE and diecut oodles of little flowers from Teal, Lt. Teal, Yellow and Brown wool blend felt. A little designer paper, some fun brads and a bunch of ribbons and a little twine completed the project.
I embossed the Soft Sky cardstock with the Scallops and Circles Impression Plate from Taylored Expressions. I adhered a couple strips of designer paper to this layer (used an edger punch on the one) and matted on Chocolate Chip cardstock before stitching the edges.
I stamped the sentiment on the bottom, added a silver eyelet through which I tied a length of ribbon and where the strips of designer paper met I added yet more ribbon and then a bit of twine on top of that. To finish I matted the tag on So Saffron cardstock and added some dots of Liquid Pearls along the bottom. I like to add a tag backer so that the ribbon ends and the back side of the sewing is hidden -- they aren't so pretty to see!
To finish here is a shot of all six of the tags. Each of the flowers are a little different and I used some different strips of coordinating designer paper on the different tags. So what do you think? A nice addition to my series of tags? :) Would you like to see more?
