Lunchbox Social Tags

The inside of a Tiny Tales book. I want wallpaper just like this. Do you think Dr. Dan would mind if he had to shower around Mother Goose? This is one of those things I probably shouldn't even ask...just do. These would make darling bookplates for a little one.

Our Lunch Box Social Tag Swap package arrived late last week. In true Elizabeth fashion it did not disappoint. 

A bluebird so sweet I think I need to make enough to fill the sky above. My very own heart...I cannot tell you how beautiful the details are. Perfect little picnic ants and a flower to set the table.

The tags wrapped neatly in waxed paper just like mom did.

Elizabeth's tag. Note the rick rack that loops off to the side. 
Our hostess of Creative Breathing.

Sandy of 521 Lake Street. That sweet little bluebird is the perfect dimensional touch.

Shirley of Zetta's Aprons. Drive in ready. There is a camper on the back.

Tammy of Tammy's in Love. The doily edging is quite feminine.

Chris of Perfectly Printed. Who doesn't fish and picnic? Love the darling image.

Jenny of Jenny's Heart. This is a tricycle I want to ride. With the glitter on it too...

Hung on a make shift garland with ants at the ready I have enjoyed each fleck of glitter, every punch of paper and all of the vintage images they have.
Thank you all for sharing your craft.

Elizabeth...I love this heart with all of mine.

The soldier blue suitcase all dried and perfectly ready for display. It turned out even better than I thought it would.



So, SO, Very SWEET!!! Just AWESOME lunchbox tags! Everyone is so talented and unique! Love that!
Don't you just LOVE the heart "E" made for you...dahhh..of course! I also have one and am so AMAZED on her handwork! Such details.

ADORABLE tags! Hee-hee- I love how the ants helped with styling each photo. :)

Love the colorful ribbons ? strung on the garland between the tags. What did you use?

PS I did manage to make ONE tag which I will be sending to Elizabeth.

LBP said...

Those tags are just fantastic! They look great strung on your hutch! Your suitcase really did turn out nicely. Isn't it great when something turns out better than we thought it would?

Love your little mending heart! I saved that bookplate on my computer- wouldn't it be a cute gift idea to print several on sticker paper, personalize them, and include a little book as well? Perfect for a child's birthday party!

You all had too much fun, but it's awesome. I ordered some wallpaper from your source, and I hope to show how I use it some day soon. Your suitcase it to die for cute. You are so amazing girlfriend. I've been saving things for you, so hopefully I'll be able to send off a goody box to you soon.

Love ya'

The tags are so sweet and what a nice present to get in the mail. The heart from E. is wonderful-you lucky! I love the way the little suitcase turned out. You are something else! I agree on the wallpaper-it would be the most cheerful room to have that.

Unknown said...

Renee, I felt as though I was opening our tags again for the first time. Absolutely wonderful!!!! You have inspired me to to hang a garland as well, so cute with those ants holding down the line....
Again, thank you for this amazing craft room of yours that never, ever disappoints!
Always, E
