I attended my first ever creative art class at Karla's Cottage BIRD SONG weekend.  It was amazing!  

Karla also hosted an after event tag swap.  Click here, scroll down to her July 12, 2011 post to see some of the tags being swapped 
Amazing talent!

I created three different tag ideas before settling on this design

  (click on photos to enlarge)

Materials cut, prepped and ready to assemble - notice the wonderful pink flocked paper.  It was lovely by itself, but as you will see, I added more sparkle with pink frosted glitter

My bluebird is ready for his close up...

The bottom fringe is pink crepe paper folded over several times, cut in half, then hand-sewn down its center to create a smocking/gathered effect, then distressed with ink and fringed with scissors

On the back- If happy little bluebirds fly... 

Whew, they are finished & mailed

Thank you Karla for being a gracious hostess and encouraging us to create.

  1. Hi Tami

    I was surprised to see your email because I haven't received mine yet but now you have me all excited. You received some beautiful tags and they look great on your stand.

    You did a great job on your tags and I hope I am lucky enough to get one of yours. Will let you know. I signed up as a follower but am not sure blogger is working well today. Will try again later if it doesn't pop up.
