Tag Swap

IMG_7046

Wow! Can you believe I actually have something to post today? :)

Thanks for hanging in there with me! I hope to be less busy after the next couple of weeks but right now, I just have to much in my plate -- my bro's wedding, one of my best friend's wedding, vacation to Hawaii, decorating for a friend's baby shower, getting our old condo renovated, and relatives staying at our place. Whew!

For this project, I did my first tag swap. It's not your typical tag -- there's no hole/ eyelet on top with yarn or ribbon. The only specifications were it had to include a flower and the color pink.

I glimmer misted a piece of cardstock, stuck some Hambly overlay, lace and ribbon. I made the flower using a piece of painted paper towel from a kol laj kit. Added some collage pauge, button, and metal flower embellishment.

Made it while watching last week's Project Runway episode. All of that designing and sewing always inspire me. I liked how my tag finally came together in the end ... it even looks like I did some sewing with that cinched ribbon :).

Speaking of, did you see last night's episode?? LOVED it! Poor Valerie though. And I am so proud of Mondo!!

P.S. Any advice on how to store Copics on a plane ride? I wanted to see if I could get some crafting done but am worried about how to deal with all the pressure?

Very pretty Rinne! I love that it doesn't look like a tag. TFS!

Hi Rinne,

Fab tag! I have been told by the Copic demsonstrator, who flies with hers all the time, that all you need to do is open them once you get to your destination, they fly rather well.

Hugs

Gorgeous tag Rinne, that flower you created is amazing... love that you were inspired by PR! :)

I was sad for Valerie too, she seemed like such a sweet and genuinely nice person... hope she goes on to great things!

Oh and have fun on your vacation, I've heard that if you take both caps off of your copic marker and let it sit for a couple minutes the pressure will equalize back out.
