Postage Stamp Tags - Tag Tuesday

I played along with this week's Tag Tuesday prompt: postage. I made two tags that incorporated postage stamps and a "mail" theme.

On this first tag, I adhered part of an old letter to a shipping tag and gently aged it with some Distress Ink. A friend of mine sent the stamped image to me, so I cut her out and made her "Jeanie." I stitched on pink lace at the bottom and added a coordinating pink stamp and ribbon loop at the top.


"From Paris With Love" uses printed canvas as the tag. I embellished it with sequined fabric, an Eiffel Tower image, tulle, flowers, antique button, and other bits and bobs. My French postage stamp finishes off the piece. I tied multiple trims in brown and black at the top.

Both of these tags are stunning! I love that you've used a real handwritten letter (I love "authentic"!), and the bottom one with the stitching and all the other gorgeous details is fabulous, too!

Both of your tags are so beautiful, each in its unique way. I love the first one for its simplicity and the letter behind that fabulous woman. Then the second one is elegant with the lace and flower. Lovely work.
