vintage gift tags...

We couldn't resist posting a few photos of our new vintage paper gift tags. They are made from some of our favourite vintage pictures stitched onto recycled card and, as each illustration is original, each tag is unique.

We think these little house tags would be just perfect on a house warming gift.

two tags from our alphabet range...


these number tags can be grouped together to form the age of the recipient...


and we just couldn't resist this duck!

There is really something particularly beautiful about the illustrations from old children's books. We never tire of creating with them and it gives us such a buzz to find old books; falling apart, with broken spines, and with pages missing, only to discover quaint and quirky pictures inside waiting to be appreciated.
