Productive Afternoon

I had a productive afternoon today. I made 4 sets of tags - it doesn't sound like much, but they took awhile (and I also finished up a necklace I'll show you tomorrow). It's a new design I've been thinking of for some time now.

First, I had to choose colour / pattern combinations. These blue ones with multi-coloured stripes are my favourite: Next, I had to cut the card and paper to size, stamp them with "Thanks!" and glue them together. Then I assembled all the pieces. The front and back pieces of these tags are held together by these adorable fabric covered brads I got from aimoobaroo (I have some more spring-y ones on their way in the mail):Which means these tags swivel open for your special message!I'm pretty excited with how they turned out. Keep an eye on my shop - I'll be posting these soon!

Oh, I love those, the way they swing open is so cool!!! Very pretty, too!!!

I get those ideas for creations, too, and if I can't get to them right away, they just keep nagging at me until I do.

These cards are fabulous, Amanda!
