I received a great Valentine tag from Terri the other day, and that made me want to make some. I decided to rip hearts out of dictionary pages instead of using the dictionary page for the background (as I tend to do), after ripping out the hearts, I glued them onto cardstock with chipboard underneath. I then added some sort of trim to the bottom, and some kind of embellishment to the heart that reflected the word I was ripping out. After I made those I had leftover cardstock, so I took some of the outer parts of the dictionary pages and made tags with those too. Here they are:
The left one was cupid, I created the cupid with some German foil wings, a photograph and a pink heart bead. I mailed that one to a friend, who would appreciate the cupid. The one in the middle is heart, so I added a cardstock and button heart to it. The one on the right just has a ribbon rose in it.

The left one was the outer part of the cupid page, so I made another cupid out of a troll and some more German foil wings, I also added some vintage buttons to the edge. This one is my favorite, I will be keeping it. The middle one is rose, the rose on the left was orignally a stick pin, the rose picture is from a vintage Valentine, that I got in a swap from Lynne. The right one has pink beads on top of the black trim, so I added black and pink vintage buttons, and the vintage looking girl to it. I mailed this one to a friend.

The left one is flower, the flowers in the left corner are punches, the flowers in the right corner are vintage buttons, I love the pom pom trim on this one, I will be hunting out more. The middle is Valentine, I had the hardest time figuring out this one, I finally added the rub on scroll and words, and then added some heart charms. The right one is pink, the leaves are punches, the circle is an old clip on earring and I once again added pink beads to the trim. I mailed this one to a friend.

The left one is red, I added red gems to the trim, the leaves are punches, and the circle is a vintage button. The middle one, I added a clear butterfly and some vintage buttons. The right one has a poufy fabric heart and some vintage buttons. These three are all going out to friends.

The left one is valentine, I added the clear "LOVE" piece to it. The last one has a piece of chocolate in the middle, and some vintage buttons.

I had such a fun time making these. I love seeing the tags that Lulu makes on her blog and have been wanting to make some especially with the trim hanging off for awhile. Now, mine aren't near as cool as hers, but I still think they're neat.

I chose to mail some to friends, and a couple to family. I'm not sure what to do with the rest.

Have you all made any valentines?

Dear Wendy:
My Valentine surprise arrived this week! I couldn't wait to open my package and did a happy dance all the way up the driveway!
Thank you, sweet friend, for your generosity - and for sharing your talent with me.
Thanks, and thanks again.
