Our project challenge this month is to build our holiday stash creating tags (see January 12th post). I am sharing another idea that you can create in just a few steps and I hope using what you have on hand. I hope to provide inspiration and encourage you to let your own ideas flow!
I am not a "birder" but I think this shape is at least like a swallow LOL
I glued vintage sheet music on the front and back of a sheet of plain cardstock, traced the pattern with a pencil and cut it out. I marked the pattern for you with placements for both a hole to hang the tag and where to put an eye :) I used Enamel Accent in black for the eye, edged this one in gold stickles and used Walnut Stain Distress Ink (the next ones I used Vintage Paper Distress Ink which is light and seems like the obvious choice after the fact!). A bit of gold rick rack for the ribbon hanger.
In my stash I have a booklet of labels from the French General, I used one on the back to provide a bit of clear writing space.
Here is the pattern template for you, don't forget to right click and save the 2nd larger image. I printed out the pattern out once but sized it so that 4 would fit on an 8" x 10" which makes a nice size for a simple tag. I am going to try a couple at twice this size, I think they would make a pretty spectacular treatment for gift wrapping. Have fun and be sure to show off all your ideas!
