Creating with Pretty Papers…

 This morning the cosiness of my craft room beckoned to me and there I spent a delightful few hours creating with pretty papers and listening to soundtracks from Pride & Prejudice, North & South and Emma… 

With the hum of the sewing machine as Nancy worked on a beautiful piece of fabric artwork, I made my favourite gift tags by happily tearing pieces of book paper and carefully cutting tiny flower motifs from scrap pieces of fabric… 
I then printed the sentiments ‘For You’, ‘With Love’ and ‘Thank You’ in coordinating papers and finished off each tag with a length of beautiful blue baker’s twine…  How I enjoy using baker’s twine in my crafting and sewing projects!  The colours are so striking when intertwined with white!

By the end of my crafting session I had three packs of six gift tags each, featuring birds and gorgeous blooms in a faded blue...

I love the old fashioned charm of these sweet tags and the uniqueness of each one. 

When needing a little something to finish off a small gift, I select the appropriate tag and write the recipient’s name on the back in my finest hand. 

Now…I think a few vintage green tags will be my next project…

With love,
