 Hello everyone,

Back with a little cute vintage. concertina card?..folder..tags..not sure, but it is cute..

These were shop bought tags in my stash, small and never used..

and using bits of tape I stuck them together

and there they are..inked up too..

Found these packets of tickets in a storage box, 
no label so stopped and did that..and then used them..

They fitted on quite well, just a wee trim..

Them out came the vellum stickers, love these things, so fast to decorate..

and while sorting that out, 
I made ephemera clusters, that makes it even quicker..

Put those in place..

Mushrooms, I LOVE mushrooms, 
so added them as I found them too..

The sticker label clusters on the other side..

All folded up, the string holds all the parts together when it opens....and really tiny..

Open up on this side..

and opened up on this side..

Such a fun little project to keep the grey matter alive
when you are not sure what to do for the day..

So, there you go..
What a great day..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you tomorrow..

Fantastic project Chrissy firstly I love the vintage theme then all those wonderful little items that you are so good at using I must admit those mushrooms are actually beautiful to my eyes I love the vellum stickers and how you have bound the tags together real arty, I have a pack of labels very similar to this filed away somewhere (goodness knows where) but I have often looked at them and thought what can I do with them now I know so thanks for the inspiration which you have in abundance
