Pretty useful... or pretty useless!! LOL!

Well , what's on the craft agenda today?
I nearly died when these rather gaudy fabrics came to my house...but it's amazing what you can do with a few 'added extras'!
Namely..
Liquid Pearls
Stickles glitter glue
Some small pre cut oval pieces of card
K&Co 'Wild Raspberry ' tag pad
And of course..your gaudy fabric..which you will now transform into something pretty and useful!
(Or pretty useless!! LOL! ;-)



Here goes...today... it's tags!
If there's one thing I love doing, it's coordinating colours...







And now for the winners of my last little giveaway!

The two names pulled out of the Snippets hat :

Clare at Summer Fete

and

Little Gem

I hate disappointing so many people...I'll do another giveaway very soon!
LOL!
Hope your Monday is as fun as mine! ;-)

Fantastic use of gaudy fabrics, it's amazing what can be done with a little, or should I say a lot, of imagination.

Simone said...

That is a great production line you have set up there! The fabrics don't look half as 'gaudy' when just a little of the print is showing. A great way of using them up!

The fabric is certainly bright. I love the tags.

Wow Sal -- What a busy morning with such "busy" fabrics. Hope all well and signs of Spring are with you!

Lovely tags ! Trsè original, et toujours des couleurs très gaies. J'adore !

Oh, prit-ty! But what are the tags used for? Attaching to presents? I'm still ambivalent about craft work. I sometimes think the fun is in the making of it, regardless of what the eventual item is. But whatever they are used for, there is no doubting that they are very pretty indeed.

What bright and colourful tags you've created from what looked like a dodgy selection of fabrics!

You are so clever, sal. You are a perfect example of the quotation: Fortune favours the prepared mind - fancy thinking of tags when you came across that material. Brilliant.

What lovely tags - anything can be made into something pretty if fabric's involved, I think!
Congratulations to the winners of your lovely giveaway.
