Flower girl tags

Another day off for me today and I’m returning to Art from the Heart in Harrogate to take part in another workshop. How lucky is that? This time it’s all about altered matchboxes. If you are a frequent visitor to my blog you will know that I love this type of project. I can’t wait to show you what I make.

Tomorrow will see the launch of the new releases over at the Gecko Galz and I can promise you that you are in for a treat. I made a lot of samples and found it difficult to stop. So I thought today would be a good day to share the last of my projects that I made using this month’s products.

This tag set has been made using images from the Flower Girls collage set. I love making colour sets and these little ladies, with their spring flower hats, were perfect for the job. The base of each tag is some music manuscript and a small piece of my favourite paper from the Gecko Galz Wild Roses paper collection.

The images have been inked and I’ve popped a tiny piece of muslin underneath. I’ve added some clear glitter glue to the flowers.

The coordinating ribbon has been made using seam binding and colouring it with Promarkers. I like to scrunch it up to give it a vintage look. I’ve wrapped a double layer around the base of the tag and topped it with a bow. There’s also some crochet lace across the bottom of the tag.

The words were stamped onto card using Vintage Photo.

  1. These are stunning Lisette, I just love the beautiful details, you really showcased each one so beautifully, the matching ribbons are perfect! I always see your work and think, why didn’t I think of that! Such beautiful ideas always. ~Diane

    • Thanks Diane – and I could honestly say the same about your work too! You just have a knack of finding the right combination.

  2. What a lovely set of tags, the flower girl set is so sweet with their spring flower hats. Gorgeous vintage style lace and lovely seam binding – I love the colours you have used.

    Have fun at your workshop, can’t wait ti see what you do,

    • Thank you Dionne – this set reminds me of a set of bookmarks I had – one for each of the Bronte sisters and each was finished with a different colour ribbon! Loved my course and came away very inky! xx

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
