Objects of Desire

I don’t know what happened but these just fell into my online shopping basket! I put it down to me not understanding the Japanese website!! Ooooops

Wooden Heart Tags

From now on, whenever I do a “What’s in my Shopping Bag” post I am going to try and get something made with some/all of the items within a day or so, otherwise I am liable to put things away and forget them until I find them again months later.

I got these wooden from a gift shop on Poole Harbour for 99p a packet of 6.  The idea in my head, when I bought them, was to make gift tags for Christmas parcels, and this is what I have come up with.

I doodled on both sides of the tags with while gel pen.

And then added Christmas buttons from a whole pile I got several years ago from the US. I cut off the shanks and used a glue gun to attach them.

A few tiny clear flat backed gems complete the effect.

I am thinking that I may sell a few of these, so I have put them on a simple backing card (as above) and then in a sealed cello bag to make them look a bit more professional.
