Kristen over at The Crafty Table put out a really fun tag challenge! Basically, she sent out an envelope (letter sized)with enough supplies to create a tag. You had to use at least 50% of the supplies provided and we did have the freedom to add supplies, but because I'm a glutton for a difficult challenge, I tried to use as few additional elements as possible.
I was a nit wit and totally forgot to photograph the kit she sent, though! There was a strip of realistic looking grass paper, a strip paper with green squares and white cross hatch sort of pattern (see on tag), a 4 inch or so piece of lime green fabulous grosgrain ribbon, a green button, a lizard eyelet, 2 green Prima flowers, and two cardstock tags in different green tones.
CAN I EVEN TELL YOU HOW MUCH FUN THIS WAS????
Seriously. I opened the envelope and was like. Great. Green. A color I generally don't use much. FANTASTIC! HA! And then, to boot, she made me use a realistic print (which I usually avoid) and a shaped eyelet (which I think are adorable, but generally have little success using). I loved the kit!!! I am so not even kidding! I told myself I was going to use as much as I could and add as little as possible and that is exactly what I did!
I used every element she sent!!!! I did cut the papers down to use them on the tag, but I used both cardstock tags and the patterns, as well! The only additions were the gems in the middle of the flowers because I can't leave a flower with a lonely center and the staple. I also used a pen to doodle in the flower stems! Isn't it cute? I thought it was cute. Particularly because it came from a bunch of stuff I wouldn't normally pick! The Hubbums came home just as I was finishing it and his first words were, 'That's really cute!' It's always good when you get Hubbums approval. Of course, then again, he LOVED Paperkins, so maybe I should be avoiding that opinion.....HA!!! No, I love it when he likes my stuff! It makes me happy!
I also have two dolls in the works at the moment and a few ideas floating around for a couple more, so I should have at least one completed soon to share with you! So, what do you think? Could you do a challenge like this?
