Kitchen Roll Tags

Trying to get back into the swing of crafting and painting again so I set myself the tasks today to make a Valentine's card for my sweetie and to make some gift tags for some birthday presents. The tags are made from the inside cardboard of a kitchen towel roll cut into three pieces and flattened. Covered with a pretty paper front and back and eyelets put at each corner to hold paper in place, then the edges are distress inked. The flowers are made from a Dr. Pepper tin cut out with my cuttlebug machine and a button placed in the center and held together with brads. I used fibres, wire and pearl beads to add dimension and texture to each tag. If you double click on the individual pictures you will get a better idea of the true colour of thses tags. Picture of my sweetie's card will be posted after Valentine's Day.
