Wow, can it really be September already? Well, in Arizona it still feels like summer, but I know Fall is coming and if I had to be honest there is a little something different in the air. A little chill...oooooh, ahhhh, it's only 85 at night instead of 99 degrees. Either way, I will take it. That little something tells me gift giving seasons are upon us and it gets me in the mood to craft, probably like no other time of the year.
There are so many opportunities coming up for us crafters to show our stuff, right?
Well, this month here at Altered Pages our theme is That's a Wrap. How perfect considering all the gift giving occasions in our near future...? And, I have for you a "little extra touch" you can add to your wrappings for all the occasions in the coming months.
It's a fun little metal ringed tag...you know the kind...like an old fashioned price tag
that might be hanging from a beautiful lamp or vintage find in an antique store.
I say take that boring old tag and turn it into the life of the party.
You can add this little "wrap' to any package, wine bottle or hand wrapped gift.
Place it in a glassine bag and secure it to the gift for safe keeping
and to add to the surprise for the gifted.
Here is another fun version with a little nautical feel. This would be fun as an embellish for a gift or as a cute little charm around your neck for that last summer soirée.
Both of these "tags" were made with collage images, embossing inks and embossing powders, jump rings, misc. ephemera and charms as well as fibers and tulle.
I hope you enjoyed! Check back often and remember to leave us a comment...we love to know you were here.
Have a great weekend!
