White - Experimental Paper Embroidery

For Tag Tuesday the challenge was to create a tag in WHITE. A good opportunity to have a little play and to do some experimenting. I haven't done any 'serious' embroidery for a long time and definitely not on paper. For the tag I chose some shapes, cut them with nestabilities, underlaid it with felt and framed the cut-outs with little stitches and embroidery thread
I finished the tag with some beads, pearls and lace. Hhhmmmmmmm, not quite sure ... I need to do some more trials with paper thickness, threads, .... if anybody has any hints and tips for this, I would be very grateful for any advice. Have a great weekend Petra.

ooo gorgeous white on white
AND
I am extra impressed you stitched on the paper
by hand?
I always wonder if punching a hole first would help but then it takes longer...but sometimes to pull the needle through I needed little needlenose pliers to help or a rubber thing to grip the needle...wondering if you found the same problems?

it was worth anything you went through Petra, really lovely!

This came out beautiful. I haven't done any embroidery before, but I have been wanting to learn to do a crochet edge on paper. Yours is very inspiring!
