Creative space

I am using my sewing table today as my creative space as Tara is using my other desk as a playdough table!

I am making lots of chicken gift tags as I am running low and I will need some for the fairs I have coming up.

I have drawn 50 chickens so far and have another 50 to draw, then colour, then glue to the cardboard, add string and then package up!

I am also making some alien gift tags as I have none left at all!! I have only done 1 of the pile (and that was for this photograph) so I will crack on with those later. They are all hand drawn and take a little while but I enjoy making them and seeing the little alien personalities come to life!

And I would love your opinion of these bird gift tags! With wing or without wing? I'm thinking of offering them in sets of 10 with 5 top hatted birds and 5 bow birds. There will also be the option of buying 10 of 1 kind. The bow and the top hat will be coloured - I think! What do you think?

Head over to Kootoyoo for more creative people!

I'd say winged and yes to the colours, otherwise they might seem a little flat.

They need wings otherwise they look like boiled eggs with beeks!! Love them and pink bows and black hats would look fab, kinda weddingish? xxx

love them all! (with wings :) )
wouldn't it be easier if you glue that printed paper onto a card and then make tags of it? I think it would save you some time (just an idea ;) )

Whew, that's quite a production! I personally think the little wings add just the right touch of whimsy, so I vote to keep them!

Adorable!

Definitely with wings. You have some great ideas. Is that a giant tag punch in the background? I have been cutting mine by hand. Would you mind me asking who makes it and what size tag it makes? Thankyou and sorry for being so cheeky.

Definitely with wings, Lynsey, unless you're going for the 'eggs with hats' look! Having coloured hats will also make them stand out more - can't wait to see the finished design! They are uber cute - I just love your creations!
