Week of Tags Day 2 – Joy to You – by Esther Asbury

(Current US Shipping Special - $3.95 – $5.95)

Welcome to the Tuesday edition of our Week of Tags! Esther created some super lovely and very festive and joyful tags using some favorite supplies – kraft and plaid papers combined with vintage lace, buttons and baker’s twine. Oh, what a true JOY these tags are! Take a look:

Tags are the perfect projects to use up those leftover strips and scraps of paper we all seem to collect in never-ending fashion.

The plaid paper used here is from the Christmas Plaid pad by Memory Box and it has the loveliest thin gold foil lines worked into the plaid patterns – hard to tell in photos – but super lovely in real life!

Short pieces of ribbon and lace and mismatched buttons also find their place on these smaller canvases as well.

The JOY is from our Christmas Joy stamp set.

The ‘to you’ is from our O Christmas Tree stamp set, cut with our Fishtail Sentiment Banners dies.

Have some fun and make up some of these vintage inspired tags.

Thanks so much Esther!

Such a lovely and inspiring tag project.
