Paper Sweeties Post Inspiration Tag

Hi and welcome to our final day of the Paper Sweeties' December release posts! There were 6 new sets made available yesterday and the DT has been posting some lovely cards over the past 3 days. Today are our post-release inspiration creations....sit back with a cuppa joe and enjoy!


I decided to make a tag for this project as I have been seeing some gorgeous vintage tags posted on Pinterest. I started off with a base of delightful Maja Design's Vintage Winter papers and cut out my tag shape. In order to get the corners relatively even, after cutting off the first corner, I flip the cut piece over and lay it on the other side...then cut along the seam to make a mirror image cut. (Sometimes that works, sometimes is doesn't, but it does work more often than eyeing it up.) I added a sponged doily, a piece of burlap, a large scalloped circle Nestie, a Rosette die, a sparkly chipboard flower and finally a sentiment framed from Paper Sweeties' previously released Banner Wishes set and the new Wagon Add-On 2 set. The top bow consists of some Victorian lace and crinkled seam binding and the bottom accoutrements are a hemp bow, paper flowers and a Zva Creative taupe pearl flourish.

Here's a close-up of the floral/pearl flourish accent:


Here is some more eye candy from the rest of the Paper Sweeties' Design Team:
