Shabby Chic Vintage Inspired Gift Tags

Hello Friends! I decided to work on a set of tags this morning! I'm really having fun making these tags that can be used as gift tags, card fronts, or scrapbook embellishments. Just to let you know I listed this set of tags in my Etsy Shop: Inspired & Unscripted.

I collaged the images in Photoshop then I embellished the tags with crochet flowers, lace, brads, and glitter.

I worked on a bunch of new crochet flowers this weekend. I decided to use a few of them on my tags. I layered two colored crochet flowers and attached them with a heart brad.

I normally don't add sentiments to my tags so that they are more versatile for multi-purpose use but I decided to add a sentiment to this set. The sentiment is pretty generic and can be applied towards various purposes. To give the sentiment a shabby look, I distressed the edge to give it a somewhat aged appearance.

Here is a new set of 10 crochet flowers that I listed recently in my Etsy Shop. I had crochet the flowers using an antique white colored crochet thread. I have a few sets listed.

Really lovely, Maria. I love the shade of aged faded pink, and I adore the use of maps for a background! It's really effective. A great mixed-media project.
