Stylish Couture Jumbo Tag for Mother’s Day
Hello, Friends! Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so I thought you might be in need of a little inspiration for a hand made gift. I created this stylish Couture jumbo tag using Graphic 45 papers and a fabulous piece of vintage jewelry I found in my stash.
This elegantly attired flapper was fussy cut from the 12×12 Couture pad. That’s one reason I enjoy working with these jumbo tags. Since they measure a generous 4″ x 8″ you can really have a lot of fun with them. I’ve created a fun rosette with Tim’s die, and added fun resin clock on top of it. Black netting and black gathered lace add a touch of glam, and help to anchor the piece. The star of the show, however, is that fabby vintage beaded earring that I’ve added on the left side of the tag. It’s a piece that my friend Kay shared with me. It came from her dear Aunt Jane’s estate and I’ve been saving it for just the right project. I love that it shimmies when you shake the card….just like the beads on a flappers dress.
Do you have your Mother’s Day project planned? Started? Completed? At a loss for what to do? Well, a tag makes a great gift! I like to hang them on dresser knobs to fancy up the boudoir. I have this one sitting in a small silver tray on the shelf above my workspace. I think we should name the lady, though….Any thoughts on that?
Thanks for stopping in! I’d love to hear from you. Your comments make me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers!
