Wonderland ~ Wake Up Alice!

I was lucky enough to be asked to be in a tag swap by the gracious Karla of Karla's Cottage.  This is my very first tag book swap and I was a bit intimidated.  All I have to say after this experience, is "Go For It", if you are at all a bit hesitant, like I was.  This was so much fun.  Not only did I have a reason to create these fun tags, but I was able to read a story that I somehow had "skipped" in childhood.  Needless to say, I now cannot wait to see the new movie that is out of Alice In Wonderland.

The tags above are actually the backs of the first set.  I did double-sided tags.  Just to have the fun of doing 12 different scenes.  So, as you can see, Alice is falling down the hole, She is  having tea, and asking for a "clean cup" and of course, the big question, "Who Stole The Tarts?".  :)

 On the tags above, we have "An Invitation to Play Croquet", A tag indicating a good many of the symbols of the story with a little tiny dangle that says, "Wake Up Alice"; and of course, the infamous "Off With Her Head" from the Queen of Hearts.

Again, the backs of the tags, with a cottage scene, White Rabbit in the Court, and the Cheshire Cat talking to Alice about being "MAD"! (Not angry, you know, mad like "insane"!)  LOL!  This little spot in the story really made me chuckle, as he tells her if she goes one way, she'll go to the "Mad Hatter", and the other way to the "Mad Hare", and then he told Alice she must be "Mad" because she is in Wonderland!  I think I've been to Wonderland a few times, myself! :) :) :)

Here's a few closeups.  I won't bore you with a bunch.  :)

Well, I hope you all enjoyed a very quick trip through Wonderland.  Wouldn't it be nice to take a little trip down the rabbit hole just to spice things up a bit now and again?

I can't wait to pop over to Flickr and see the rest of the tags as they are posted.  And I am anxiously awaiting the tag book from Karla. 

Blessings to all,

Update:  I've added some new items to Etsy.  Get your Easter Trees!   :) 


  1. Hello Kitty, oooh all of your tags are wonderful! I have never done any kind of a swap before and it sounds so fun! Yours are so very cute, having scenes on both sides! xoxo Julie Marie

  2. Dear sweet Kitty,

    So glad to see you! I love your beautiful Alice in Wonderland tags! You did a wonderful job! You had no reason to be intimidated at all! You are so creative! I love all of the sweet details too. I think my favorite is the last one with the rabbit serving tea.

    Our darling friend is out of town and I have not heard from her. I miss her too!!! I hope she will return soon!

    Thank you for visiting and for your sweet comment! I hope you have a beautiful weekend!

    Love and blessings,

  3. Bonjour Kitty! Of course every thing you touch will instantly turn into beauty, the tags are no exception! Tags making is fun and I think we should do that a lot more, every present improves with a tag, but somehow there are always 'more important' things to do and that is why I love the swaps, in that case you have to make something. I'm in this tag book swap too, so we might get one tag from each other, wouldn't that be fun?! Thanks for dropping by Kitty, enjoy your weekend, hugs LiLi

  4. Your tags are did a beautiful job with them.
