Hello Kitty Tag Swap

Packed and shipped! I'm very excited because this was my first tag swap (or swap of any sort!). What better swap to join than a Hello Kitty themed swap right? I loved Hello Kitty and all her Sanrio friends growing up. When I was younger going to the mall was always a treat because I knew that's where the Sanrio store was. My mom allowed my sisters and I to buy at least one thing every time we visited the store weather it be a stationary set, a pencil box or even a piece of candy. I was obsessed, I even designated a whole shelf in my room displaying all my Sanrio items like a Shrine. (Ahhh....memories) I've only held onto a couple of items but had I known Hello Kitty would make a big come back the way she did, I probably wouldn't have gotten rid of anything!

The swap was hosted by the lovely and very sweet Alee'. You can find her on Youtube or her blog. The rules were simple: It had to be at least 5 inches or more in length, we must use fabric in any way or form (I chose to make a fabric flower) and chose any color theme of our choice. I had a lot of fun creating my tag and am pleased with how they turned out. I can't wait to see the tags from my group members. Once they come in the mail, I'll definitely post them.  

Materials Used:
  • Hello Kitty cartridge
  • George and Basic shapes cartridge (for the tag) 
  • Sanrio paper line by Sandylion
  • Bling
  • Fabric, neddle and thread  
  • Red pom pom trim (walmart)
  • Flat back pearls (Recollections)
  • Buttons  
  • Glossy accents
