Countdown to Valentine's Day: Tags

It's ONE day till Valentine's Day!

So today I have some tags to share. I made these using some {awesome} cutfiles from The Cut Shoppe. I love making things for other people, so I made these tags to attach to some sweet treats for my family members.

I used chalkboard paint (!!!) for the base tags. I had been watching a Wilna Furstenburg video tutorial where Wilna uses chalkboard paint for some Dear Lizzy tags, and I remembered that I do have chalkboard paint! I don't think it's exactly meant for paper crafting, but it's fine. I'm not really worried about the archival quality of these. ;) I wrote on the painted tags with an awesome Sakura Jelly Roll pen. It's the best white pen ever.

To finish the tags, I took some basic white acrylic paint and a paintbrush to splatter some paint flecks on the tags.

You can read more about the making of these tags on The Cut Shoppe blog today. :)

And that wraps up my week of Valentine inspiration! Which project was your favorite this week? I'd love to know!
