Rustic Red Tag

I needed a special gift recently and I didn't have much time to come up with one.  On Saturday, we found out that a family in our church is moving to a different state.  A going away fellowship was scheduled for Wednesday.  Most of the ladies in our church participate in a secret sister exchange.  My secret sister this year is the mom of the family that is leaving.  We are sad to see them move, but know that this is a good opportunity for them.

You may recall that earlier in the year I had given some little treats in some Pampered Chef containers.  I had the rest of the set to give as well as a cookbook.  That took care of the gift, now I just needed a card.  I decided instead to make a tag.  I must admit that I absolutely enjoyed making this and I love the way it turned out.


Tag Front

Here's what you need:
3 Girl JAM Ribbon (Sunflower and Holly Berry)
3 Girl JAM Burlap
Tim Holtz Ink - Fired Brick, Vintage Photo
Tim Holtz Embellishments (Key, Keyhole, Word Strip)
Rager #8 Tag
K. & CO Paper - Tim Coffey Designer Paper "Cottage Garden"
Holiday Inspirations Ribbon
Kraft Card Stock
Hemp Jewelry Cord
Scrap of Lace
Zig Pen - Red
ATG and Glossy Accents
Tag Back



After the tag was complete, I tied it to the packages that I had wrapped in Red/Kraft gingham tissue paper that I had picked up on clearance at JoAnn's quite a long time ago.  Lots of raffia also from the JoAnn's clearance section finished it off.


To see all the tips and tricks I used, please watch the video.


I will be linking this to the current 3 Girl Jam Challenge  - Anything Goes.  You should head on over and check it out.  Until then,
Take time to enjoy the little things.
