Shabby Fun!

Well, my pumpkin making has slowed down a
bit, which is giving me an opportunity to do some
of my other favorite things, like making
gift tags!

I have been playing with some
coffee and tea staining on tags
and embellishments.

Here is the first tag I've finished!

It has a little winter/holiday feel to it, but can 
be used for any occasion!

The button is handmade clay, and was
created by a delightful young Christian girl, who has
her own Etsy shop.  Isn't it charming??

Her shop is Dolly Madison and can be 
found here

I also embellished a lighter kraft
gift bag, and hand stamped 
the tissue paper so it coordinates with
the doily on the bag.

What do you think?
I am considering adding a line of
embellished bags and tags to my
shop.  They would sell for $10-$12 a set,
complete with coordinating tissue, and
in different styles.

Let me ask you...

Would you purchase a set like
this for a special gift??

Please do tell!!
Feedback is always a good thing!

I am joining in on
White Wednesday over
at Faded Charm!!

Have a lovely day!!

Becky, I think selling your gift sets would be perfect. I love your tag, especially the look of snowflakes for winter. The clay button is a charmer and very cute.
I wish you lots of luck with your new adventure,

Hi Becky,
Your tag and bags are so pretty. I think you should list some on Etsy or your blog. I think they would sell well.

Hi Becky-
What a creative idea. I think it is great, especially that you are doing and including hand stamped tissue paper. I have not seen anyone doing that. I think it is a great idea! Love it!

It's very cute, Becky! Love everyting you do. I think it is a great thing to sell. I usually wrap my gifts and decorate them somehow, but if I needed a bag, I sure would consider buying one of yours.

Can't wait to talk to you. I've been missing you a lot. Life has been CRAZY, but what doesn't kill us makes us stronger! LOL!

Love you...

I think the giftbags are beautiful. You do such wonderful work, my friend.

I am so looking forward to seeing what you have next for my home. I am building up a Becky section in my house.

Take care, my sweet friend. God bless. Amy

Dolly Madison said...

Hey Becky,
Love all your beautiful creations. Well, looks like its unanimous that you should sell your sets on Etsy. I know I am always looking for unique gift wrapping items!
Take care and have a wonderful week.

Hi Becky, I mentioned your sweet tags on my blog today and also have a photo of that cute shovel I purchased from you! Your Dream tag made the perfect addition to it. I love your Wintery sets and yes I would buy!!!

Elena said...

That is a beautiful bag set. It would be like someone giving you two gifts. You could keep it as a keepsake to remind you of the gift and person that gave it to you or you could use it again to give a special gift to someone else!

Dorthe said...

Becky- it would be a very beautiful line of tags and bags -I`m sure you can sell it -the idea with the stamped tissue are perfect-I normally also makes my own wrappings, but if not I would surely buy those lovely things from your hands.

Jane said...

Very pretty! I love your you well know.
This would be a lovely and unique gift for a "Victorian" style lover.

Looking forward to seeing you soon... (I may need to change Art at Home dates...hurt my wrist and arm and am having difficulty painting. I'll know in a couple of days...)
