Vintage Tags at Sugar Creek Hollow

It's Saturday and that means time for a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow.  We had such lovely entries in last week's challenge - it's always a pleasure to see what our followers and participants create - we get such inspiration from everyone that plays along. 

This week at Sugar Creek Hollow we're challenging you to create a vintage or shabby chic TAG and share your talents with us at the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog.

For my vintage tag, I used many different antique images that I've collected from the internet over the years (so sorry on not having exact sources for this one).  I really just created a collage of these images on a tag I created with Vintage Linen cardstock from Papertrey Ink.  I wanted the focal point to be the birthday greeting so I also used this vintage birthday card image on the tag.

I also used Webster Pages digital paper images that I printed and cutout in this vintage collage.

And finally some doilies distressed with "Old Paper" distress inks from Tim Holtz add another element of vintage charm.  For the top of the tag bow, I gathered and then tied together several loops of hemp twine and adherred it with a little glue dot.  I think the bow adds a terrific shabby and natural look to the tag.  A few adhesive pearls placed strategically and we're set. 

I hope you've picked up a couple ideas here today on how to create a vintage looking tag. I do hope you'll join in the tag challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow. In the meantime and for more vintage ideas, visit the Sugar Creek Hollow site to gaze at the creations provided by the design team. I think you'll find their work inspiring as well.

Thanks for stopping by today!
