LFF #88 - An early Mother's Day

Happy Aloha Friday!!

Today for LFF #88 I made these cute little tags for my co-workers:

These were super easy to make and a lot of fun to give away.  Especially to those that have never received anything from me before.  I made enough for the ladies that were actually in the office today, the rest will receive theirs on Monday.  [They are all in Hawaii at a "conference", so they can wait. hahaha!]  Here is a close-up of one of the tags:

I love coming up with small little tags like these for the co-workers.  First I cut a bunch of the rolled roses with my awesome MFT die using some older K&Company double sided paper.

Love the effect the double sided paper gives.   I cut up 3 or 4 different sheets of paper and it only took about 10 minutes to roll all of them up.  The rest was done in no time.  Glad I had that leaf stamp, which I purchased from crafty friend, Eva, (Hi Eva!).  It was big enough for the tag and adding the single rose was perfect.  I found that ribbon in my stash and loved how the colors matched the flowers.  I only cut a small strip, glued it down and then used a stapler to give it a little metal touch.

I finished these up during lunch and was able to hand them out before everyone left for the day.  They were all smiles and happy.  Which made me happy.  Glad I could add a smile to their day.  I love this tag, think I'll make more for other occasions.  If you're interested in seeing what other stamps and dies Eva is selling hop on over to her blog and check it out.  Happy Aloha Friday friends, wishing all the Mom's an early Happy Day!!  Mahalo for stopping by!

Whoa, can't believe you whipped ALL of these tags in lightning speed. They turned out really nice. I really like the idea of using double sided DP. Have a Happy Aloha Weekend Leanne.

Oh, these are great! Love the vintage look of the roses and the stamped leaves on a cool tag shape. Well done and super thoughtful.

Super tags, so pretty and somewhat easy to make. I'm with Eva, my fliers never turn out as nice as yours. I spy a hand written message...LOVE your penmanship!
