Birds of a Feather Tags

I wanted to share my latest swap item...tags.  I loved making these.  Our theme was "Birds of a Feather".  To get my inspiration I just goggled "vintage bird images".  Once I found these beautiful images, I just started creating.  I cut the tags with my Coluzzle (old school...I know, but I like it for thicker papers) from some old folders I had.  I liked them because they were not manila, but rather a brown.  I also punched the little tag from the same folder.  I then stamped feathers all over the tag, inked its edges and sanded the entire thing to distress it.  I went through my scraps to find some pieces of vintage looking papers to layer with.  I hand wrote the sentiments and stitching on the small tags.  Then I just started layering and adding flowers, ribbon and a brad to get it the way I wanted it.  I really like how they came out.

Thanks for looking!

These tags are beautiful... I hope I didnt make a mistake.. I made ATCs with the theme of "Birds of a Feather". I hope maybe they both had the same theme.. Your tags are so awesome.
