Burlesque Gift Tags

Yesterday I made a series of embellishments from my little digital doll “Lola”. I have created / illustrated the little figure in various situations and styles years ago.
Printed on glossy photo paper with a white edge the intricate parts were able to be cut even in a small size, which is the most cute.

I started to use them for gift hangers. As backgrounds I used my own printed gelli prints and solid color embossed tags, paper lace and a piece of antique lace.

These funny gift tags are perfect for delicate gifts like lingerie, vintage lace or chocolate packed in a classical chocolate box. I can’t wait to find the perfect recipiants to give them away.

Paper lace doilies on elegant black and white gift tags with flowers

I love lace of all kind.
Now I tried the first time to cut paper lace doilies on my Silhouette Cameo. I recently bought many designs from the Silhouette online store, because I find them soooo complicated to make, that I do not have to do this myself.
I even had a bit of a hard time to cut the finished designs. I had to try many different settings and paper qualities. The intricate designs will not work with cheap paper, that tears easily.
You have to use new sharp blades and a slow speed.

I put different designs and sizes on letter size format and came up with a stack of beautiful lace doilies. Now I have to think what to do with them and just started with some tags I decorated with flower embellishments from my own black and white flower collage sheets.
