Vintage Valentine's Day Tag

Just poppin' in to share a quick project with you all! I'm a bit late sharing this one, but it's been one of those months. I hope you were able to get to all your Valentine's day crafts this year! ❤

I created this Vintage Valentine's Day tag for my hubby using Graphic 45's Place in Time February Cut-Aparts. I also posted a video tutorial up on my YouTube channel. I thought I'd share some pictures here on my blog. If you're interested in the tutorial, I also plugged it in towards the end of this post. Here we go...

This is the front of my Vintage Valentine's Day tag... Lots of distress & metal!

I softened up the look with a "bouquet" of I Am Roses miniature roses and some 
May Art chiffon ribbon...

I finished off both sides of the tag. Here's the back...

Here's my video tutorial showing you step-by-step how I created this tag. Enjoy!

Here's a sketch if you are interested in putting one of these together yourself!

Have a craftilicious weekend! ❤
