Valentine-Themed Altered Tags Swap - Postmark by FRIDAY January 19th

Doily colored with ink pad
It doesn't seem possible, but Valentine's Day 2018 will be here soon.  Let's decorate/alter some shipping tags with doilies, ribbons, hearts and flowers,  birds and other cheery images.  You can make them reversible, or not.  Lynn is hosting this swap. 
Use any sized tags.  Three sizes are shown here.  I think blank tags would be easy enough to make from manila folder material or sturdy card stock (NOT cardboard): just cut rectangles, angle both top corners, punch a centered hole.
If you include ribbons/ strings/yarns/fibers for hanging loops- keep in mind that anything lumpy or thick will probably cost more for her to mail out (as nonmachinable). 
Some collage images from  Lisa's Altered
Art sheets

There will be a limit of two (2) tags per swapper due to anticipated mailing costs.

THEME:   Valentine's Day Altered Tags

MEDIA/TECHNIQUE:  paint, collage, rubber stamping, doilies, ribbons, lace, stickers, etc.

Please glue or stitch elements securely onto the tag(s).
