Tag It!!!

Okay today I'm going to share with you something different!
This weekend, two of the sisters in the Community I make part of, will be doing their Profession; i.e. their Official vows. For us this is a Special Occasion.. like an Engagement, sort of.. just to put you in the Picture.

I wished to make them something personalised, and at the same time something that they may keep.. and that will be a source of courage and inspiration. So I made my first set of tags, to be pinned with a dainty and simple present.

First I tied the towels, face cloths and a Daily Prayer Calendar with a satin Peach ribbon, matching the peach small flowers embroidered on the towels.

Then when I finished the tags, and embellished with ribbon and fibres, I pinned them on top. They will be able to remove them, to be kept as a keepsake :)
These are a couple of close ups of the different layers. Both are the same, but I made them a personalised front tag, with their names.

I used scraps of paper from my stash, and various gems, flowers, lace, and some stamps.

The large image of Charley is Cuddly buddly, and the swirls, sentiment and flower are from Studio G Clear stamps.

Then I added a couple of buttons, brads, small pegs and some doodling, obviously :)

Anyway I hope you likee, and that I may have some feedback on what you like or dislike it these tags! :0 Every opinion counts, really! :0)

Have a good day (or night), I'm very much tired now... off to sleepie :0)
