Latest Project...Can you guess and win?

This is a custom have to guess what the order is for. These postcards will be used in it along with everything else you see plus some more items but I can't give it all away now can I.

A pile of tags for what? It's a secret. You have to guess. Hmmm...what might they be for? Anyone?
Before/After antiqued tags... I used plain packaging tags you can pick up at any office supply store. I ripped the bottoms off of them. I then used a foam brush and a rag to apply and take off a mocha glaze mixture. 2 parts glaze to 1 part water. I then pounced the rag over the tag until it looked good and then I let them sit overnight. Then off I went to my workroom to embellish. That's the fun part!

The before and after tea stained papers

Tea stained papers: I used 4 black tea bags and 6 cups of water. The paper is 140 lb.watercolor paper With my bamboo tongs in hand I gently placed 3 pieces of paper at a time into the solution and let them sit for 3 mins. I then removed them and placed them onto a cookie sheet while I placed the next batch in. So after the second group came out, I drizzled more tea water onto the first batch and so on. I let them sit overnitght and this is how they looked this am.

Ooh... I just love yummy supplies like these delectable ribbons. Nothing gets me more energized or inspired than fun stuff to play with.

A little glimpse at some small note cards that will accompany the above items...

These are so sweet. I am thinking of creating some for my shop. My poor shop has been so neglected since July.
Well, I have to get back to this project, so I will leave you hanging for a few more days and then when I am ready I will unveil the project. If you guess right, I will send you a small handmade gift. Good luck!
