Sketch S/A [A] #3

Tag Sketch created by CY Designer, PR Director & DT coordinator Ali MacDonald

Tag created by CY Design Team Member Ann Seleshanko

Ann has created for us a beautiful tag embellished with a rich brown ribbon and a "POP!" of pinky-red from brads that became the inside of the flowers! With machine stitching and white pen work, how better to say "Thank You!?"

TIP: Placing this tag on a wrapped bouquet of flowers and watching the smile appear as your recipient reads your handmade, classy message of thanks... Wow! It packs a lot of punch. WTG Ann, it's a stunner!

Tag created by CY-Design Team Member Robin Gibson

Wishing a friend "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" couldn't be done better than with a tag depicting a yummy-licious sundae! That rick-rack, heart and scallops are to die for, Robin! GREAT job! Tie this tag to a filled gift bag, and AWAY you go to the party!

TIP: Another suggestion is to tie a tag like this to a Treat Bag at the end of a child's birthday party. In the treat bag, be sure there are a few goodies, a coupon for a free ice cream cone [pre-arranged with the local ice cream shop] and a "Thank You for coming to my Party" written on the tag by the birthday child!

Tag created by CY-Design Team Member Rita Barakat
With its music notes, mini-prints and tiny bows, this "Live" tag lends itself extremely well to musically-inclined gift recipients! The flourish certainly is eye catching as is the turquoise detail!
Well done as always, Rita!
TIP: Use a tag such as Rita's to embellish a gift of "live concert" tickets or an invitation to a musical event at church or school!

Additionally, it could be used on a small houseplant or set of floral bulbs for the garden to remind someone that you're thinking of them.

Tag "pocket" created by August CY Guest Designer Angie Redhead

Here' what Angie told me about her rendition of this week's Tag Sketch:

"I made a tag out of fabric and embroidery and then made a tiny apron for my daughter around it. The tag ended up being a pocket. There is a layer of felt sandwiched between two layers of fabric for the tag pocket. The top scalloped portion also has stuffing inside to make it more 3 dimensional. The flower was cut out from a printed fabric. It has stuffing inside and then sewn around the edges. The leaves are embroidered on. I was too lazy to get my sewing machine out, so this project was all made by hand. I left the edges raw as I love that look!"

Above: Tiny apron Angie made to showcase the "Tag Pocket" she created.

Eireann was wearing her apron the next day as well and tucked her little harmonica into the "tag pocket!" How adorable!

That's it for this week, everyone!
