Retro Birthday Tags


Hello, my friends!

Another beautiful morning!  We had rain all weekend, which is SO unusual for us here in our area of California in June!

Just a little to share with you today…a fun and easy project using Vintage Street Market’s wonderfully nostalgic “Party Games” Paper Sheets & Tags kit

Party Games

This is a LARGE set!  The paper sheets, shown below, are  24”x36”—perfect to cut as you wish, or use for large projects—even wrapping up a fabulous birthday gift!

…it includes this fun cardstock sheet full of tags to use on your projects—so much retro fun in this kit!

Yesterday I made a couple of big, colorful birthday gift tags—just perfect for your favorite boy or girl…


…a colorful bunch of streamer-like ribbons stick up at the top—a combination of grosgrain & gingham ribbon, clear cellophane ribbon, and fabulous Baker’s Twine


…a bright yellow rosette made with the crepe paper sheet included in the kit…topped with a big, fun chunky button, threaded with more of the Baker’s Twine, with a little tag punched out from the Tag sheet—“To You from Me”…


…sweet little boy and girl scenes cut out from one of the paper sheets…


…and a bit of the “Numbers” Tinted Tape as a border along the bottom of the tags…



…and wrapping it all up is a finishing touch with my favorite Platinum Stickles


…and that’s about it!

So glad you stopped by for a visit today! Hope you have fun creating some vintage-inspired birthday treats for your favorite boys and girls!
