Valentines Shabby Chic Tags

Love is in the air , and its time to spread the love in huge proportions....
This month Aussie Crafters is having a fun tag swap in one of my favourite theme's SHABBY CHIC.
https://www.facebook.com/notes/aussie-crafters/shabby-chic-love-tags/333465596864274

Definition :- SHABBY CHIC , a style of interior design where furniture and furnishings are chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear, or new items are distressed to achieve the look. this style is typical of whites with a very feminine, soft, romantic feel.
RECYCLING is also a big part of this beautiful look.
pop over to " PINTEREST
for some ideas and inspiration if you are stuck
For this swap I have created 3 half tags ( size 9cm x 11cm ) and each one has a slightly different colour and type of distressing, but keeping them as a set that go together.
So if you love shappy chic and making tags , pop over to Aussie Crafters and join in the fun and find out all the details to get involved with this swap.
