Holiday Spirit Sentiments meets Vintage Santa





This month is all about the tags. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.







I was so inspired by Betsy Veldman and Dawn McVey and their beautiful pockets full of tags. I
couldn't wait to make some of my own. I made six of these sets to give away after Thanksgiving.
I used Papertrey Ink's medium glassine bags for the pocket, and decorated it up with vintage goodies. I trimmed the top of the glassine bag with pinking shears.





This panel was stamped with Background Basics: Botanical and the sentiment is from Holiday Spirit Sentiments. I'll put my note and signature under this part. I cut the top with a large scalloped oval nestability.




I was snooping in an antique store and found a 1950 Night Before Christmas book. I love these old fashioned images so much. This tag is made with the Tag Sale #1 die. The old sheet music is from 1945.



The 'believe' and 'fa. la. la' are also from Holiday Spirit Sentiments.








Thanks for looking and I hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving!

What a great use of an old book. These certainly will be keepsakes after the holiday season - hopefully one can use them every year. Very precious!

So cute! Love the bag with the trimming on it. And what a find at the store! I'd love to get my hands on an old children's Christmas book. Your tags are so vintage looking and beautiful. What fun you had making all of this.
