another way to use vintage trims

UPDATE: sadly the host for this pdf has changed & in the process the file was lost plus I'm not able to find my original file so I can't make it available again...so sorry...if I happen to find the file I'll update this post again with new info.

UPDATE: I had a typo in the original download - oops! so I've updated the link & the jpeg here as off 11:48am thursday the 9th...so if you downloaded it prior to that you'll have to do it again. sorry.

I thrifted a bunch of fun patterned vintage trims awhile ago & this past weekend got the idea to turn them into gift-tags:


I scanned a couple & then used photoshop to replace some of the words. I think they're kind of fun...if you do too, just click here to download the free pdf:

Bummer, I just used my last trim tag but I can't seem to download from the new CX.com. Do we need a subscription here to download the pdf? Either way, I loved my tags.
