dick and jane sweet sentiments tags

Mary ann at Follow Your Bliss hosted the Sweet Sentiments Tag Book Swap. The participants were to make 16 tags with the requirement that they contain a sweet sentiment.

I made some tags using various pictures from vintage Dick and Jane books, an old children's text book for background paper, grubby coffee-stained tags (purchased from Magic Moonlight Studio's eBay shop), satin white ribbon, and buttons (of course):






Packaged up and ready to go:
I rarely have a hard time parting with the items I swap or give away, but I did with these. I love Dick and Jane. So, I had to make a few for myself.
I especially loved the Sally tags:

These are the backs of the tags- simple silhouette images and my contact info:
