No Place Like Home!

It's time for Challenge #73 at Simply Create Too.
 
Theme: Shopping in Your Craft Room
 
That is right - You can not go out and buy anything new for this challenge. Think of it as an opportunity to clear something out of the way and make room for all those goodies that could pop up under the Christmas tree in a couple of months.
 
Now for my project using paper, embellishments, and twine that was already in my stash.
 
Any of you remember that old saying - There's No Place Like Home?!
 
 
Well then you may just happen to like these cute tags using files from Treasure Box Designs!

 
These were so fun to make! After piecing together my characters, I attached them to tags that I cut out from a file from My Scrap Chick. I then threaded the ribbon through the tag and secured the ribbon with a button and some Totally Natural twine from Trendy Twine. I used inks, a white gel pen, some chalk, and my Micron pen to add details to all my characters.
 
Supplies Used:
Treasure Box Designs: Over the Rainbow
Trendy Twine: Totally Natural
My Scrap Chick: Fall Tree Gift Tag
Papertrey Ink: Vintage Cream (Tag Base)
Basic Grey: Lemonade 6x6 Paper Pad (Tag Patterned Paper)
Various Colored Cardstock for my Characters
 
Here are some close-ups of a few of them:
 

 
 
I am so happy you were able to drop in today. I have a FB page and Pinterest page as well if you would like to keep up with all my latest projects.
 
If there is anyone who is interested in tags similar to these, I would be willing to take a few orders. Please email by clicking on my profile on the top right of my blog. You will find a link to my email there. Thanks so much!
 
Blessings,
