Tag with Handmade Paper Heart

I love making special tags, and what could be more special than a tag enhanced with handmade papers. I made three different papers using basic papermaking techniques. Each used a pink color palette, but with different inclusions.

For the crown I added iridescent flakes to the paper pulp. For the heart, I added silver sprinkles and Angel Wings dried botanicals. I added bird seed to the pulp for the wings. Each paper was unique and complimented the other papers. The heart pieces were cut using the Sizzix Heart Wings die.

I started with a wooden tag from the Antique Tags collection from Beyond the Page which I painted gold with an acrylic paint. While the paint dried, I assembled the heart and embellished the crown with Dew Drops.

I attached the assembled heart and more Dew Drops to the wooden tag using a quick drying white glue. The addition of ribbons, lettering, and tulle completed the tag.
