My wardrobe of tags.

Good afternoon!
Today I've been altering something else! I've been using a wooden drawer to create a wardrobe. The drawer is stood on its end and has been distressed all over with Walnut Stain (by the ever-so-inspirational Tim Holtz!). I've also added some bobbins with ribbon wound around them to the bottom as little feet. The buttons are all from our stash, as is all the ribbon. The embellishments (eg. the coat hangers that the tags are hung from, the mannequins, bobbins, sewing machine, etc. are from Cuttables Vol. 3 for the craftROBO/Silhouette). The papers used are all from 'The Elegance Collection' CD.

I used 300gsm card for the coat hangers (which works like a dream through the Silhouette Cameo!) and distressed them with my old favourite ink-pad.Now for a close up on the tags that are hung inside the wardrobe:

The sewing machine above is decorated with our 'Cherry Blossom' stamp which is great for editing die-cuts and for around the edge of backing papers. It's also been used on the tag below - along the edges of the mask and papers.

The bobbins, button card, mask and birdcage have all been cut on the Silhouette from Cuttables Vol. 3 (£6.00) and the little distressed dots on the button card have been done with a mask from Cuttables Vol. 3 too!

I hope you like it (I can't stop admiring it at the moment - I'm so proud!)

Have a wonderful day,

Hayley xx
