Let's Get Girly!

You heard me right! Let's get girly! Now, if you know me, or have met me, you know I am NOT very girly. I'm big, I'm tall, I'm loud, I have short hair, I wear jeans and sneakers, almost never wear jewelry and wear very little make-up, and am allergic to perfume! I don't even carry a girly purse! But I do admit to some inner girl. So here you go - a very girly project for today!

I used a 4x6 clear acrylic page from MOSD to make this birthday tag. I've been trying to use my left-overs before the new Design Team comes on board and we get all new DT packages! You still have until June 25th to answer the Call (click here for details) so get those entries turned in!

This project came about thanks to several people: thanks to Lori who gave me the idea for a large tag, thanks to Pam for giving me the Girl Friday paper pack for Cosmo Cricket Week at 365 Cards, thanks to Jacquie for the ginormous pom pom trim, thanks to Vicki for the amazing flower swap, and thanks to Vickilyn for taunting me about not using enough ribbon. There are three kinds on this project Vickilyn, including that HUGE pom pom stuff, but it's STILL just a tiny bit! I guess I can't do it!

I edged the clear acrylic sheet with paint and then attached my paper to it with adhesive. Check out these mulberry paper flowers! Aren't they awesome?! Some I got from the Crop Stop store, but the rest came to me in a flower swap I participated in at Crop Stop.

See the green "leaves"? They are actually petals from a green flower. Who uses green flowers? But if you trim off the petals at an angle, they make great leaves! The glitter brad I got from Michael's - the Recollections line.

This tag is sparkly and pink and flowery and very GIRL. Perfect for attaching to a birthday gift for your best gal pal. I put a plain pink backing on the reverse side so you can write a message to your friend.

I hope you visit next week. I am not sure what project I'll have, but there will be something to see.

It's beautiful!! And I suppose you can't use too much ribbon on something that's only 4x6 inches - but three ribbons is impressive!

So, I assume this girly tag is coming to me in the V birthday card you made a few weeks back?!?! LOL (Think mid-September!)
