I took one of my clay tag designs, and gave them the look of mini framed chalkboards, with a vintage feel.
My "Old World" finish, with dark grey paint in the middle.
I'm also making Christmas tags/notebooks. I like this idea, cause you can write an entire poem to the recipient if you want. These are fun to make.
I've have lots of handmade, and vintage paper lying around. Although I've said it before, I'm still getting emails asking for my source. I'm the source, cause my ephemera has been collected over the years from garage and estate sales, flea markets, etc. I have tons of books, loose paper, ledger sheets, sheet music, wallpaper, etc. You can use whatever you have available.
These little tags/notebooks were made with handmade paper for the front and back.
I stamped the lettering and images with sepia ink. I used vintage paper inside.
I punched a hole, added hemp string, and a round head paper fastener.
Not only does it help hold the little notebook together, it gives you the option of refreshing or exchanging the paper. Lots of possibilities here.
A different take.
I have other designs to finish, and a living room to complete. See ya soon.
