Tag Within a Tag

Hi friends!  It's a so-so day here--overcast.  I'm making a small turkey breast for dinner today; so before I begin that, I thought I'd pop in for my weekly blog post.

Today's tag within a tag was made with the new Vintage Glam collection from Recollections.  Love the kraft color mixed with doilies and sparkles.

The tag was cut from a cereal box to give it extra support and then both sides were covered with Vintage Glam papers.  I made a pocket on the front from another sheet and edged the top of it with glittered trim.  I placed a Wilton doily onto the tag and a pretty rose button from Tim Holtz at the top.  A cluster of Recollection flowers highlighted with Inka Gold and a glittered twine bow was placed in the lower right corner.

The smaller tag is a premade burlap tag from the collection.  I simply decorated it with a burlap and linen flower and gold-tipped leaves (also part of the collection).  A piece of lace trim was placed at the top.  I forgot to photograph the back, but it was covered with a sheet of diagonal silver glittered stripe paper.

This is really quite a pretty collection.  Of course, I am drawn to anything that sparkles!  I've made several projects with this collection so far.

Before I sign off today, I thought I'd share a photo from our annual Fall visit to a local orchard last week with my dear sister-in-law Anabelle and her son.  Unfortunately, my son hadn't arrived yet, so he isn't in this photo.  Thank you so much for stopping by and all the kind comments you leave.  I wish everyone a wonderful week!
