Be Our Valentine ... The Twinery Event!

Happy Monday ! ! !

Welcome to The Open Window and a fabulous day !

That's right . . . The Twinery wants to be YOUR Valentine !
Our design team will be sharing inspiration with you
all week long with crafts that focus on a variety of themes.

Today it's Gift Tags!

These are bold, aren't they?
I love mixing bright colors, but it sometimes takes me awhile
to come around to them.
For these tags, I was totally inspired by our baker's twine.
Pink Sorbet
{doesn't that sound absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS?!}

I stamped the tag tops & sentiments using terrific stamps from Avery Elle,
then embossed the bottom section of the tag using this
beautiful diamond pattern EF from Lifestyle Crafts.

From there, I simply loaded up on twine and made the
tag full of texture.

For a completely DIFFERENT take on tags . . .

 I focused on our newest 'Platinum' Shimmer twine
paired with 'Ocean' to create a completely different look.

Staying with the stamp set from Avery Elle, I simply 'shadowed'
the images with my inks.
The gorgeous button brads are from The Paper Studio.

Just check out the beautiful metallic shimmer woven into the twine . . .

It's a fabulous celebration and I hope you will join us each day.

There have already been amazing giveaways & each day brings more.

Today's giveaway is a great 'GIFT TAG' PUNCH.

the details and to find more inspiration from our great designers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Make sure to leave a little note before you make your
next stop.  I'd love to hear from you  :  )

Super cute tags! I'm wondering where you got the cute paper clips, though.

These tags are really fun! The twine from the Twinery is such a terrific accent in some and a burst of color for others. <3 them!
