Flowery Tags

Today I would like to share a project with you which is part of my preparations for a german Eastermarket at the beginning of March (just about 6 more weeks to create cards, boxes, .... , can you hear the slight panic? (lol) ). My dear friend Martina convinved me that it would be a good idea to do something like this .... and I could not say no .... so here I am with the first finished products ... 30 small tags cut, stamped, distressed and embellished. These are the steps in creating those little flower tags
step 1: 
I used patterend paper from The Girl's Paperie and My Minds Eye to cut the tags and stamped them with a Prima Marketing stamp and distress inks in two colours (brown and blue)
 step 2:
The edges of the stamped tags and the little round labels have been distressed with distress ink. When this was done the true fun bit started and this is the result
step 3:
I embellished the tags with little flowers and velvet ribbon from the Ribbon Girl and buttons from my stash.  As I thought it might be a bit difficult to write something on the back because of the flowers, I attached a little round label to the back of each tag using some white silky and some cotton ribbon from my stash. Here is the back
And now back to the next batch of tags (lol) Petra.
