Valentine Tag for you....Twinery Fun!!

Oh my goodness....I don't know what has happened but my mojo is flowing like a river after the winter thaw and I am making all sorts of things I usually don't make!!

The other day I was at Staples and happened upon the shipping tag aisle.  Well, I just decided to pick up a box of them.  Now, I have no clue if this is cheaper than getting them elsewhere, but I had some rewards to use!!  These are great tags to alter also....very sturdy!!

As we all know Valentine's day is fast approaching, and now is the time to start making the cards, tags, gifts, etc if you are going the handmade route!!  Oh, totally do not forget the mailboxes either!!  
This tag took literally no time to make.  I would have made a few more...but my mess needed to be cleaned up and I needed to get to bed!!!  


I knew I wanted to make a twine heart shape out of my baker's twine from The Twinery.  So, I drew a heart and cut it out.  Then I took redline tape (super sticky double sided) and covered the heart with it.  Then I took my Pink Sorbet twine...started at the top point, and just laid my twine around the outside of the heart. Then I just kept going until I had the heart filled in.  I then tied a small knot with some ends sticking out from the Caribbean twine and glued it in the middle.  Then I decided I needed another heart, so I mad a bigger one, use the same colors of twine and then glued the smaller one on top of the bigger one.

A little distress ink, a little Unity Stamp action, some K&Co paper, with some vintage lace, a little more Twinery twine in Cappuccino...and Voila a tag is born!!!
Supplies: Shipping Tag, Unity Stamps, The Twinery Baker's Twine,
Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Cute as a Button button,  
K&Co Sweet Nectar paper, Memento and Distress Inks, FabriTac and Red Line adhesives.

I love this tag as it is, but it would look so cute on a scrapbook page or on a card.  If you haven't tried to make these kinds of tags.....pull them out, grab some Twinery Twine and start creating!!!!
