Shabby Chic Vintage Inspired Tags and Stampin Up Pink Pirouette Crochet Flowers

Hello Friends! Happy Monday!!! I worked on a few tags yesterday! These tags may be used as gift tags, card fronts or scrapbooking embellishment. I listed them in my Etsy Shop: Inspired & Unscripted. I'm planning to make more of them in different designs!! I really had fun making them!

To create the tags, I cut the shape using my Stampin Up Top Notes die. The shabby chic vintage images were printed on an off white card stock. I had collaged the images on Photoshop using images from a CD of ephemera that I had purchased years ago. I distressed the edge using Tim Holtz distress ink to give them an aged appearance.

To embellish the tags, I added lace, crochet flowers, and seam binding bows. I had crochet the flowers using cotton crochet thread then dyed them with Stampin Up Pink Pirouette ink to create the pink shabby chic look and topped them off with faux pearls to the center of the flower. I also dyed the seam binding with the same ink and created a bow.

I added an organza ribbon to the tag to so it can be hung on a gift box or just as a decorative feature.

Here are the crochet flowers that I had used to embellish the tags. The size measures 1 1/2 x 1 1/2" and lay flat so that it can be used on handmade cards, scrapbook layouts or used as a layering flower. I've listed a bunch of them on Etsy as well as plain white ones so that you can dye them yourself if you want. Stop by my Etsy shop and check out the recent items that I've listed!!!

Well, I think I'm going to work on more flower embellishments. They are really fun to make. I'll have a bunch of them listed in my Etsy shop soon! I do have a few listed so far but I have a bunch that I still need to work on taking photos of and listing.

That's it for today1! Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!!
