Magnolia flower tag with G45 elements from The Rubber Buggy

Hi all!

I haven't made a tag in what seems like forever.
I think I went a bit over board - LOL!

I started by stamping Magnolia chicken wire underneath the Magnolia paper rose ornament from once upon a time. This paper is so shabby that you could just use the paper, but for some reason I just can't help but to tear and tug it a bit more. The Magnolia paper is distressed with Tim Holtz weathered wood and the tag is distressed with vintage photo.

I stamped the post card from Graphic 45, french country, and distressed it with tattered rose, after tugging some in the corners and shaping it I just adhered it with some washi tape from Prima Divine. The little pocket is is stamped again with the Magnolia chicken wire and then with the bumble bee from Graphic 45, French country, same set as the post card.

After that it's flowers galore. I'm tucking flowers everywhere :)
Here I used I am roses paper flowers, but you can find similar flowers in the store from Wild Orchids Craft. They're exaclty the same, I 've been wondering too :)
In the midst I tuck some Magnolia vintage berries in ivory and on the top of the tag is just satin ribbons in different colours and widths. To create some movements I added a garment pin with a butterfly charm.

Finally, the back of the tag is really simple.
I stamped the back of the tag with Magnolia postage stamps and then I distressed a piece of "Scandinavian summer" paper with vintage photo. I then used another postage stamp from the same Magnolia set and stamped over both the tag and the layered paper in order to make it more coherent.

I had a blast making this tag - I could barely stop :)
Let me know if it would be of interest to anyone for me to make a start to finish video tutorial of this tag.

Have a great day!
