Tag Swap

When I first signed up for Jenny's Fated Follies Majestic Feathers Tag Swap, I was thinking of tags with crowned peacocks and colorful birds in regal robes. I dug around in books, online and through my craft room stash and wasn't really feeling inspired. And then it hit me that I didn't need to show a bird at all. How about creating nests with golden eggs . . . the next generation of bird royalty!

I used standard mailing tags (which happen to be the exact size that Jenny asked for), covered each one with silver flocked paper (it just felt sorta regal), and fashioned little nests out of moss. For the golden eggs I used jewelry beads. And I tucked a white feather in each nest. Finished off each with a strip of gold trim and a purple tassel. Added my blog URL to the back. I was thrilled with doing something a little unconventional, a little more subtle with the theme.

Again, please send some of that creativity my way! The tags you created are wonderful! I forgot to tell you I love all of the wedding ideas you put together. The old keys were great! They were blessed to have your help. Have a great weekend! Jackie
