What you'll need:
(3) 5 petal flowers or cut outs [download svg file here]
water based marker like marvy le plume markers
semi thick cardstock
glue like glossy accents
You will have three flowers. You will cut 2 of those flowers. Cut one petal out out of the first flower then cut two petals out of the second flower. Now you will have 1 petal, 2 petals, 3 petals, 4 petals and a whole flower. Now glue each flower by the edges. I crumple the paper before I glue them so it is easier to fold them.
Now cut a hole on the bottom of the four bigger flower parts.
Starting with the smallest part start inserting the petals into the bigger ones and glue them on.
Now color the edges of each petal with your marker.
with your finger dab and rub each petal with water for a few seconds or until the marker has blended into the cardstock.
While the petals are still wet, pinch them with your fingers until you get the form you like and then dry them with your embossing gun...you can then add glitter and/or some bling in the middle and you are done.

I printed these on the back of a thin cardboard envelope to give it that vintage look. The file contains these three tags and one more like the angel tag but without the wings saying family. The file is in pdf form...download here.
I got the bike file from graphics fairy's blog.

I used My minds eye paper for both of these...and martha steward crystal coarse glitter on the letters and carrara marble on the bird. I found the butterfly while looking through my stash...I'm not sure where it came from. The mini scrapbook is in a little box and I printed the little baby picture and sheet music from the previous websites I've mentioned plus The Graphics Fairy site.

I printed a vintage music sheet from Carol Anne's Boutique. You should check out her website if you like vintage clip art. I also printed the girl pictures from another vintage art website called Vintage Holiday Crafts and then embossed them with clear embossing powder...one with a cracked glass effect and the other with a glass like finish.
