I love to have sets of cards and tags ready to go for those last minute occasions that arise. That is why I decided to create a set using the Flea Market line. This collection is just gorgeous and filled with beautiful colors, sweet motifs and fun, vintage details. I chose to use some of the softer elements and paired them with vellum to create a pretty set of vellum pocket tags.
Here's what I did....
I started with some shipping tags and my watercolors.
I wanted to add some soft color to the tags without overwhelming them. Here are a couple of the tags that I painted.
Once they dried, the fun part began. I used the die-cuts, some chipboard and some stickers from the collection to embellish the tags. I also used the resin flowers. They were the perfect accent! I purposely left my tags sentiment free so that I could add my own later, depending on my needs.
Next, I cut three strips of vellum to 3" x 8". I stitched around the edges to create my pockets.
After sliding the tags into the pockets, I embellished them as well. I tried to use elements that complemented the tag inside, since you can partially see them through the vellum.
I love how all of the little pocket tags look together and am even thinking of tying them together with twine and using them as a gift themselves. That is, if I can give them up :)
Thanks for stopping by today. Have fun creating your own tags!
