some gift tags

very very thick (left over from valentines day years ago clearance bin find) die cut felt hearts. (these are so thick, I've had them in the closet a long time) used some liquid glue to adhere them to the white core cs that had been run through the bug. so far they are holding. the test will be if they are still holding come November when its time to do the booth again. Have a gobs of this white core cs from ctmh to use up, so chopped up an 12X12 sheet and ran it through the Mistletoe Kisses embossing folder and it was way too flimsy to use as gift card bases so chopped it up and stitched the panels to some oatmeal cover sheet. the stitches are visible inside. ( figure it just ads to the "rustic" hand made character of these) and ended up being 16 of them. Stampin Up sentiment, hmm these brads came out of one of the cardkits i got as a gift from Gina K designs recently. So, bits and pieces of these were in a pile on the table for about an month now because, the doing multiples of something really is B O R I N G, but, all the packaged "matching" gift tag sets SOLD at the booth so, been thinking about that now that its getting closer. November 19th&20th at Hosanna Christian School's "Shepherds Market" crafts & antiques fundraiser for the school sale. Decided that for the schools raffle bin to do a couple of packaged sets of gift tags as my booths donation. ( so eventually gotta come up with something else) so have one packaged set of 6 to give to the school, one packed set of 6 to sell. and 4 packaged singles. done with scraps on the table, Ippity Authentic Man (tie row image) done with versafine on Oatmeal speckletone layered to a scrap of PTI spring moss, the ribbon's May Arts, the eyelet/grommet is from Dritz. {the two pieces did not line up right on this one, so it snagged the ribbon and made it a little distressed/ragged looking} sentiment's from Stampin'Up. about 5 inches long don't remember how wide.

I like the gift tag bag sets.

I think that I had some of those hearts, too. I use heavy duty glue, too. I tried glue dots and glue strips, but the felt peels right off. I hope that the glue holds.

Love that tie tag...
