Valentine Tags

     I had a request from my DD for some help with tags for her office staff.  Each holiday she likes to do a wee bit something special.  Since my grandson has a bigger class this year, she has plenty to do the the little ones there.  So, I took on the task of being tag maker for her.

     I knew I wanted a shape so I went through my Spellbinder dies and the Fleur De Lis dies, which I cut and turned on point.  That striped paper is from American Crafts.  I made the same amount of cuts in white for backing.  They were matched and glued together with Tombo.  Next I used my Classic Hearts Spellbinder dies and cut medium size hearts, which I popped up in the center.  They were cut out of paper called Cloisonne by GCD.  I used a stamp form Michael's from the dollar bin for the sentiment and colored the heart and edges with Copic and the centers were sponged with Tattered Rose Distress ink.  I strung each with tri-color bakers twine, added a little Diamond Stickles to the heart.  Found they needed a little something else so I punched 2 small hearts and added clear gems.

     Maybe I should use this opportunity to enter these over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is The Color of Love.

     Well, that was my Friday off from work!  I did do a tiny bit of online shopping for some Easter papers and a sloth stamp.  That was fun!  I appreciate your visit, and have a great weekend.
