I'm the one who loves to wrap gifts in boxes, with pretty bows and unique tags. I like my gifts to have a pretty tag or ornament included, so the recipient has a keepsake.
Recently, I created tags, that can be used as bookmarks or planner page markers afterwards. I used girls from the front of vintage patterns and added motivational quotes or words to them, and most have a piece of vintage lace that can be used to tie them on a gift. I love them and was excited how they turned out. A few are attached to a magnetic page holder. I use one in my planner, to mark the month.
I love to reuse items and used the paper instructions from the pattern to wrap the small box. (Side note - I buy old patterns to use the tissue paper to wrap my items that I ship out. You'd be surprised how many old patterns have never been cut and you can often find much larger pieces of tissue, compared to the smaller pieces now found in stores.)
I tied a bow with vintage lace and added the stories tag. Can you imagine the stories these two could tell???
"Enjoy the little things, for one day, you may look back and realize they were the big things." -Robert Brault
"They are able because they think they are able." -Virgil
(Love her sassy look and can hear her say "Here's the thing."
I grew up reading, and loving Laura Ingalls Wilder and when I saw this quote in a magazine, I had to cut it out and use it!
"It is still best to be honest and truthful;
to make the most of what we have;
to be happy with simple pleasures;
and to have courage when things go wrong."
All the tags are now available in my shop and ready to be shipped now.
I love this idea! I have a collection of vintage patterns. I have some ideas to have the covers copied and use them in artwork. Thank you. SharonReplyDelete
