My First Attempt at Tags

I'm not a paper artist, not even a scrapbooker. I don't have rubber stamps or fancy cutting tools. Somehow though, watching other artists, like the amazing Elizabeth from Creative Breathing, transform paper images into beautiful tags inspired me to give it a try. Here is a "weekly calendar" of tags I created using images from an old children's book and lots of vintage flowers, trims, and buttons:

MONDAY: Watch the bubbles fly -

TUESDAY: See the wash get dry-

WEDNESDAY: Mend with all your might-

THURSDAY: Make things clean and bright-

FRIDAY: Bad for dust and flies-

SATURDAY: Good for cakes and pies-

SUNDAY: From all tasks we're free. After church we have our tea.


  1. They turned out so cute and now you are going to have to go buy all the fancy glues and scissors!!! lol ~Shlelley O.

  2. Oh, those are so cute. I just love those illustrations. Be careful though, paper crafting can become addicting. :)
