Fun tags!

I have found a fun new resource on the web for craft ideas, tutorials, and patterns. It is: If you register you get their daily craftzine. The variety of craft mediums they cover is great and it's trendy! They recently were running a submission request for tags, I managed to whip up a couple. Quick tip: you can create your own ephemera! I have some vintage aprons patterns and I just love the artwork because it is so nostalgic. I took the pattern envelopes and some cardstock to my local copy store and made color copies. I used vanilla colored cardstock to go with the vintage, antique look. They turned out great and I cut out one of illustrations to use on one of my tags. These would be cute when making a heritage type album. In fact I have some great photos of my grandma from the 50's and it would be really cute to incorporate these charming pieces of the past into a mini album. Perhaps you will see it in a future post...
