MDS Blog Hop - Christmas Vintage Photo Tags


It's that time of the month again - the MDS Blog Hop where we share what we're working on! You've probably gotten here from Elizabeth's blog -- she's so talented, I can't wait to see what she's working on this week!

About a year ago I saw an idea on Pinterest where they wrapped their Christmas presents in plain paper then put an old photo of the recipient on the package instead of a tag. What a cute idea, right? Well, this year I thought I'd MDS it up a bit and made tags out with MDS with the old photos on the tags. I had so much fun at my parents going through old photos!


I started with the Decorative Label punch shape, colored it black, then added the Texture Overlay from the Vintage Overlays kit. I colored the overlay white and set the opacity to about 10% so it would be light. It kind of gave it a slightly worn look that I wanted. The holly berries that I added over each photo were from the Holly Jolly greetings download.

I hope you enjoyed today's project -- what have you been working on to prepare yourself for the upcoming holidays?

And now it's time to visit Jeanna's blog to see what fabulous piece of artwork she's come up with to show you today! Just click the "next" button below and you'll be right where you need to be. Enjoy your weekend!
