This month I am celebrating all things Valentines or romantic and thought it would be fun to create a tag with a retro flair.

The products you will need
Chip board shipping tag
Gold Acrylic Paint
small Foam Brush
Foil Lip paper by Recollections
Pin Up Girl image from Gecko Galz

Red Heart Doilie by Recollections
Distress Ink in "Candied Apple"
White Card Stock
"Happy Valentines Day" Stamp by Craftsmart
Valentine Trim from Hobby Lobby

Start by paining the chip board tag with your gold paint and let dry.

take your gold foil lip paper and cut out to fit the bottom of the your tag. And print your vintage pin up image onto a piece of white card stock and get one of your heart doilies out.

Ink the edges of your tag paper and your pin up girl using your inking tool and red ink.

adhere the paper to the top of your tag using your liquid adhesive ( we suggest Scotch quick drying adhesive)

Now take your valentine sentiment stamp and on the remaining part of the white card stock you cut your bombshell out of stamp the sentiment in red ink.

Next cut into a strip measuring 4" x 1/2"

Using scissors cut strip into a fun banner then ink the edges with your red ink.

Now layer on your heart doilie, pin up girl, and then your sentiment banner.

Finish by tying fun valentines trim through hole to finish.

Have fun creating your own valentines inspired tag!
Happy Crafting
