"O Tannenbaum, o tannenbaum, how lovely are your branches."
I started this week's tags with a simple, traditional green tree. Easy enough, right? Yes, I thought so too.
Until I decorated it with little red colonial knots ... looks more like a bad case of chicken pox, doesn't it? LOL!
Oh well. I think the pretty floral Victorian scalloped oval setting takes your mind off the poxes. And I'm so happy to have found an opportunity to stick another bow on something.
But then I developed a pink itch that I really needed to scratch ... so why not a pink tree?
I dug out my pretty crystal sequins and clear beads to decorate and then just fringed the linen edges a bit for some texture. I picked the aqua ribbon because of the few tiny aqua flowers in the fabric.
And then I went all aqua with the last tree.
I had a harder time coming up with a good-looking garland. I tried a few different things before settling on these flower sequins. Ooooooh, do I ever love how they turned out!
Oh, and I backed all three tags with the Kraft-Tex I mentioned last week.
So that's that. One tree, three interpretations.
How are your tags coming along? Are you getting inspired? Remember to visit Amy over at nanaCompany to see her batch of the week!
Amy and I are going to try to put together one more set of tags for next week. Keep your fingers crossed ... unless you're busy making tags ... then never mind. ;)
