Going Vintage...

The sun is out today and has offered a nice meltdown with the snow. This is now day 3 of no school and I think the cabin fever is getting to all of us...MOM included! I did get out the baking supplies and the girls and I have baked a few dozen chocolate chip cookies. They love to pull out the aprons and go to town. I was even able to sneak some nuts in without hesitation...my 6 year old swears she can't eat nuts...you would never tell with those sticky fingers! Needless to say, she had her fill this afternoon ;))).

While the girls were crafting with the Cricut yesterday, I looked through my supplies to see what I wanted to work on. I came up with these vintage tags that I thought would go perfect with some kraft lunch sacks. There is a lifetime supply of these bags underneath my desk. They were used at my craft show for packaging purchases. Detailed close up. This was a first for the use of doilies. I picked up a pack of 30 from Michael's and rubbed my Dew Drop inks over them to cover up the white. The flowers are die cut with my nesty circle scallops. All the flowers are tea-dyed and "scrunched" up before I adhered all the layers. The leaves are from my PTI die and I stitched on the vein lines. Buttons are foo-fa-la.Pink lemonade tag. This is the only tag I left the leaves off of and only because I thought it might be too much with a green flower. Even with the leaves left off, it still offers enough layers for a vintage feel. The mini tags with the sentiment were white so I added some vintage ink from Tim Holtz (the same ink I used on the edges of the large tags).

Mish--you are too funny, I was thinking it was more along the lines of Melissa Phillps ;)...she tea-dyes like crazy...I LOVE IT!

Sacks were purchased in bulk from Sam's...the actual size is large enough to fit a six pack, but I folded the bottom half up ;) I have 500 of these...lord knows I could spare a few ;))
