Shabby Chic Advent Tags

I've been obsessed with altered tags for quite some time. Last Christmas, I decided I would start collecting items for an Advent Tag kit for this season. I picked up lots of trinkets, lace, and vintage elements here and there along the way for an entire YEAR. And this is what I came up with...
To showcase the tags, I bought a backless frame from a local antique store.  It was originally dark, so I added gold rub n buff to it, and I love how it shined.  Next, I bought foam core from the Dollar Store, dry fit it to the inside of the frame, and cut it.  Then I wrapped the foam core in burlap, to cover up the foam.  I then placed the entire backing into the frame, and attached it to the back of the frame with Duct tape.  Nothing fancy or expensive at all.
Here is a closer look.  Click on the images to see them more closely.
I plan on doing a whole sparkle/glitter holiday showcase, and will shoot photos of this in my home when I finish decorating.  For now, I wanted to give you a closer look at the project itself.

If you are interested in purchasing the kit, you can email Trish at, or place your order directly here.  The cost of the kit is $30 plus shipping.
Enjoy your day!
