Gift Tags with Flowers for Mother's Day

Welcome to the month of May! I think the thing I love most about this month is flowers. All of sudden everything is in bloom and beautiful colors abound.

Today I'm featuring a set of gift tags I created with Deena's Bottle Cap Images - Mother's Day Flowers. The colors are gorgeous!!

Bottle Cap Images - Mother's Day Flowers

There are six different floral images and you will get six of each -- for a total of 36 images on a page! The size of each round is a bit larger than one-inch.

I printed the downloadable on white card stock and punched out four of rounds using my 1-1/4" punch -- this leaves a bit of white around the edges, but I like the way they pop against the background of the tags.

I used four manila tags and lightly sprayed them with turquoise mist. When they dried, I stamped them with botanical images also in turquoise. To add a bit of contrast, I stamped "carte postale" in sepia colored ink to give them a vintage feel. I also distressed the edges of the tag in the sepia color.

For lack of a better word, I "scrunched" each round to give it a distressed feel and embellished each with a brad. I attached each bottle cap image to a tag and for a finishing touch tied a strip of turquoise seam binding to the top. The flower colors match perfectly with the turquoise accent!

These tags would be a lovely addition to a Mother's Day gift box or gift bag! The flowers images are so bright and cheery!!

Have a wonderful Mother's Day everyone! See you next time!
