Tag


I have been able to have a crafting day today as I am still bothered with a nasty cough so I needed to stay indoors.(My excuse anyway!) One of the good things about having lots of time is you can trawl through all the challenge sites and then work your way through them!
Tag You're It! had posted a challenge yesterday called 'Sugar Candy Kisses', so this morning I sat and made this little tag which I thought would be suitable for a new baby. (One of the things I think about tags is they can also be made into a greeting card with a little bit of imaginiation so this one may well end up on a card at some time in the future if I can find a suitable background!)
Anne (one of my 'Blogging Stamper' sisters) had sent me these brilliant images of fairies on top of their own cakes last year and this was the last one- it seemed perfect for the challenge.
After mounting the fairy and her cake on top of some thick card, I used foam pads to raise her up from the actual tag and a pink patchwork button instead of an eyelet to secure the ribbon. Some glitter glue applied to accentuate her wings, a tiny paper heart in the bottom left hand corner and a couple of buttons 'holding' on the greeting of 'Hello Cupcake' and my tag was done!
