Quilled Tassel Tag

Hi all, back to share another of the projects that I made for the November Custom Quilling newsletter a quilled Tassel Tag.  I have always loved tassels and beautiful tags.  So I decided to combine the two and make a tag that is attached to a large tassel that can be hung from a doorknob, drawer pull or lamp.  The tag can be changed for whatever occasion, season or holiday that you like.  Both are oversize and are very versatile in the way you can decorate them.  It is hanging below on the cabinet in my hallway.

For this first tag I chose to use the quilled poinsettias and scroll work in red and white. The tag is over 6" and the base layer was colored with Red Appel and Gold Glimmer Mist as well as the red top layer tag.  The quilled poinsettias are made the same way as those on the Tea Box with the added scroll work.  I love the dimension that these wider strips give.  The snowflakes are stickers and look like they have been embossed onto the tag.  I added crystals and  holographic embossing powder to the sticker and heat set it for extra shimmer. In real life it is very sparkly and the crystals catch the light beautifully as well as the metallic edges on the quilling strips. It is just hard to get it to show in a picture.

The tag is attached to the tassel with a double bow in deep red and wine taffeta so it can be easily changed out for another. Be sure to check back Friday to hop along with the Fred She Said DT blog hop! Until then,

Y'all are sooo sweet and leave awesome comments!  If you have a question please be sure to leave a way that I can contact you to answer!
