Gift Tags - Day 18 of MPC

I continued making things out of photos I've taken, and just finished these gift tags.

I first used a photo of the Eiffel Tower, and then played around with color variations and special effects in Photoshop to give it this pink and grainy look. I then printed several copies of the same image on vellum paper and glued them on a soft pink metallic cardstock. I also took small slips of paper with "to and from" typed and pasted these on the back of each. Finally, I used a special tool to set the eyelets and strung a sheer pink ribbon through.

aww.. thanks so much Joan! yeah I did the travel photo series and subsequent projects more for myself... because the images have been stored away on my computer for way too long. And it's always wonderful to see if it's received well by others. Thanks for the encouragement!
