Birdsong Tag Book Swap

I am participating in Karla's Birdsong Tag Book Swap over at Karla's Cottage, and I thought I'd share pictures of my entries before I mailed them off. The theme, if you haven't caught on yet by the name ;-) is about make 7 tags and get 8 back, including one of Karla's tags, too. I had so much fun playing in her Alice Tag Swap ... you can see my entries here.

I used napkins that had a darling bird image on them..

...peeled off the layers of the napkin and adhered it to a blue tag..then embellished them with cuttings from an old doily, silk and velvet leaves along with beaded fringe.

That's a poker chip that I 'antiqued' with distressing ink, stamped a nest image and glued it on the chip for a little added dimension. Used fringy yarn for the ties..

Karla wanted us to sign the back along with our info, so the easiest thing for me was just to attach my business card to the back, and stamp the top. Off they go into the mail tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to seeing what I get back!! Fun-Fun-Fun!!

Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.

  1. Myrna, your tags are fabulous! I keep wanting to do one of these, but I never find out about them! I absolutely love your business card. Did you do that yourself?

  2. Love your tag, Myrna!!! So many nice touches! You always do such beautiful work!!

  3. They are so sweet! Perhaps one of them will be in the tag book I'll receive.
