I just finished a tag swap at Mini Album Swaps - a place my friend, Suzy Q told me about last year. It is a wonderful place to do your swaps, as it is quite organized with loads of fun!
I joined a few of the swaps and now that this one is closed, I can show you what I created and sent to the hostess. It was a "Be my Valentine" Stick Pin swap and you had to make three pins with a nice backdrop on which to place them.
My backdrop was a tag that I had covered in red card stock, added roses, and a doily, which I sprayed with homemade glimmer mist. Then added Martha Stewart's fine glitter to it because it looked "dirty". In the photo, it looks dull but in person, it has a glittery presence. The tickets are Tim Holt's and the heart stamps and heart styrofoam (looks like Valentine conversation hearts) were from the dollar bin.
I can't wait to see the stick pins that will come back to me. I love these and charms - great craft collectibles.
Happy Crafting! :~)
