Operation Tag -- A Birthday Celebration!

Hi everyone!!  Today, we are celebrating Lesley's (Owner/Creator of Trendy Twine) mom's birthday--Happy Birthday Janice!!

Lesley asked if we wanted to make birthday tags to send to her mom.  Now, I really don't think of myself as a great tag maker, but I really wanted to participate.  And I really do like the way it turned out :)  I found this great tag shape on one of my Cricut carts.  I can't remember the name of it right now, but I wanted something a little wider since I feel the narrow tags limit me.

I used the beautiful Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine along with some ribbon for the top of my tag.  The fabulous flowers are from My Creative Time--I just love these.  And I finished it off with some faux stitching, a Close to My Heart stamp and some fun sequins :)  Oh, the paper is Doodlebug.

Be sure to head over to Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the fun birthday tags made by the design team and some fabulous Trendy Twiners :)



  1. You did an awesome job on your tag Helen! The papers and colors are beautiful and I LOVE that flower!
    Janice is going to love this!

  2. This is so elegant, Helen. I love the shape and the colors are gorgeous.

    Thanks so much for helping to make Mom's birthday even more special.
