Vintage Tags

Maggies challenge this week was the theme of Vintage Tags. Time has been at a bit of a premium so although I love vintage, I had to make these in a hurry. Suppose it's a bit early for a remembrance one, but then really rememberance should be done all year round not just on one day. The ATC sized tag is a vintage paper collage , with a skeleton leaf, a photo of a soldier and a made vellum envelope. The poem 'Flanders Fields' always brings tears to my eyes, and after making the vellum envelope I popped in a copy of it. The paper poppy is secured with a black brad.

The other tag is again a paper collage, added a few bits of lace,ribbon and a little crocheted flower secured with a pearl brad. Isn't her hat very grand?!!!


  1. Viv both of these tags are beautiful, one rather romantic, the other nostalgic, poignant and important. You're so right. It's never too early for Remembrance Day. ♥

  2. Viv, these tags are very beautiful!

  3. Oh I love your tags! I have a special place in my heart for collage and all things romantic. :)
