VINTAGE TAGS-THINK SPRING

I've been busy again today creating for another swap.
Joanne over at Vintage Dragonfly
is our host for this swap.
We are to make 10 tags with a theme of Spring with any medium we choose.
We will mail them all to Joanne, she will then swap them up, make a tag book for each of us and return. I can't wait.
I have finished up several and have two I think to go.
I wanted to share them with you today. I am also linking up to a few bloggy parties, see who/what below.
Some of the tags are made from cutouts from vintage greeting cards. Isn't this one darling?? Some tags are simply wrapped with handstamped vintage trims finished off with tule with a cutout tucked in.
This is a piece of vintage rice paper and an 8 cent stamp. This one has old dictionary paper, vintage trims from wedding gowns and some stamps I have.
More cutouts and a button or two.
More lace and trims, I love trims!!!
Images of antique photographs from my personal stash. Inked flowers and more trims.
These two are sisters, don't you think?
I am linking up to the following parties.
Thanks to the hostess's
I will post the rest of the tags for the swap when finished.
Thanks for stopping by.
