It's a Prairie Fairy Friday and this is my first week posting with the design team at The Prairie Fairy. The challenge this week is to make a card or project using something recycled or repurposed. Projects are not one of my strong points and after scratching my head all week, I jumped into gear and made....a tag. Okay, probably the least exciting of all the DT projects this week, but it is very vintage which made me happy when I was making it.
I used a piece of the heavy chipboard that comes in a paper pack. I wanted to embellish the tag pretty heavily so I wanted something stiff. I also used some crochet thread from my grandmother's sewing basket that is at least 50 years old so I guess you could consider that repurposed. I had already glued the distressed paper to the tag backing when I realized I hadn't done any stitching on it. So I took my paper piercing tool and pierced holes for large cross stitches at equal increments aound the tag and then used the crochet stread to make the stitches.
