February Children's Hour Tag

Hello, this month's tag pays homage to St Valentine's Day with hearts and flowers...

I used the February Children's Hour Papers, February Collective...

And February montage...

They can be found in the Trip Down Memory Lane shop here.
You will also need...
  • An 8"x4" tag
  • red card or paper
  • pink mini bobble trim
  • 7mm black satin ribbon
  • and a couple of gems
To start with use some of the February Montage paper to cover the lower part (about 2") of the tag and cover the upper part with red card or paper...

Cut the short pink patterned strip from the collective paper and fix with foam pads. Add a line of bobble trim or lace...
Cut the mother and child from the montage paper and attach as shown...
Cut out a postage stamp and the girl holding the rose and add using foam pads...
Glue strips of satin ribbon round the edge of the red card...

Cut out more roses and layer them up on the tag...


Punch two hearts from the montage paper and the black strip from the collective paper and add to the top of the tag...I crumpled the black strip a little then folded it to turn it into a curve instead of a straight line attached with foam pads...I also added a couple of gems to the hearts...


Finally add another piece of black ribbon through the hole in the tag for the finished tag...

The great news is you'll still have enough papers left over to make a couple of Valentine Cards too.

Happy St Valentine's Day and I'll see you again in March.
Happy crafting.
