Snowflake Legend – Beautiful Tags by Barb Schram

Barb has a way of creating the most gorgeous tags and she always finds very unique ways to use them.  Today Barb is sharing a snowflake project and her beautiful tags turn her snowflakes from simple to totally WOW!!!  Amazing projects!  And further down I have a Valentine project to show you as well, also incorporating the use of tags.

Barb started by using Melissa Frances tags and embellished them to her heart’s content — take a look:

This is the first tag adorning a large white snowflake.  Barb used a computer generated sentiment.

See the full project on Barb’s blog here which offers more explanation and photos.

This is the second tag adorning a very large, open, silver snowflake.

At the risk of being repetitous again, I’m going to show you a project from 2 years ago because it is timely, being a Valentine, and because it incorporates the use of TAGS, which is today’s theme.  Take a look:

This is a Valentine pocket card, with a surprise inside!

Paper – Kaisercraft English Rose

Find all Kaisercraft 6×6 pads here.

This is the flap that opens.  The scallop edging was a punch out from the paper pad.  All the Kaisercraft pads have many pages of die-cut punch outs.

May Arts Ribbon:  5/8′ Crochet Lace in Ivory, 1/8″ and 1.25″  Silk in Pink, Satin String Leaves in Olive

Prima Flowers: Fairytale Roses used, Encore Roses would also be the perfect size

And here’s the inside pocket, filled with tiny tags on which you can write little love notes!

A Velcro Dot is used to hold the pocket card closed.

And this is a close up of the tags.  Again, these tags were punch out die-cuts from the back of the paper pad.  Similar die cuts are found in every Kaisercraft pad — fun pads to have on hand!

Fun project to make!
