i made this Love Tag trio as a homemade Valentine’s gift for my husband. inside there is a gift card and coupons with gifts of my time. i think with all the things in the world, time is precious. The greatest gift of my love i can give him is my time. Coupons include date night, his favorite meal, etc. You can see how i put the base of the tag trio on the My Mind's Eye Blog.
i layered pieces of patterned paper from the 6x6 pad. i punched a border around the bottom piece and then layered a colorful patterned piece on top. On top of that, i added a piece of book text and vintage thread. i punched a heart die cut, added a brad and pin, and inked the edges. The enamel dots were perfect to add color around the tag.
i love to tie my tag trios closed with twine. To keep it in place, i used a piece of washi tape to secure it to the back. i stamped the sentiment and added the heart sticker. My Mamma always said the back should look as pretty as the front.
On the middle tag, i added a piece of patterned paper with words cut from the 6x6 patterned paper. i adhered it to the tag with a small bit of decorative tape. Under the piece i added my favorite picture of the two of us. On the right side is a gift certificate tucked into a pocket with a layer sticker. i like that he can take this tag trio back to his apartment as decor to sit on his dresser as a reminder of my love for him.
Here's a link to another tag trio i created using stencils to emboss the tags.
