The prompt for Week 6 is "Hidden Messages".
What I mean by this is using pockets, flaps, ties, envelopes, waterfall or maybe like me a zip to hide your message. The actual theme of what you hide is up to you.
For my tag, I have used patterned paper from the Dovecraft pack called "Sweet Paris" I covered the tag in the polka dot paper. I then found a pink zip and stuck paper to either side of the opening, making sure the pattern matched each side. I then flipped it over and lined it with a pink and cream striped paper from the same pack. I stuck the zipper/paper to the tag and then trimmed to the size of the tag. I trimmed each side of the zip and the top of the tag with a narrow cream lace and made a matching tassel to hang from the zip.
This is the heart that is behind the zip. One side is a pink/red coloured card, the other is covered in the same patterned paper I have used for the exterior of the tag.
I typed the message, printed it, then cut it down to fit on the tag. The message says "For hearing my thoughts, understanding my dreams and being my best friend... I love you xxx".
On the left hand side of the tag, I die cut three hearts and added and "I" to one heart, stamped the word "love" on the central heart and on the bottom heart added a die cut letter "U".
On the right hand side, I added a vintage looking flower, die cut a couple of pieces of foliage and added the Tim Holtz clipping word stickers "my heart's desire" to a small banner style tag.
To finish I inked the edges and added a paper ribbon to the top of the tag and folded out the top sides of the open zipper to show the interior.
