Easter Children Tags

Inspired by Brigitte’s comment on yesterday’s images of Easter Boy & Girl, I decided to use them for a ready made set of tags too:

Sadly, I only have two images in this set, but I plan to embellish the tags differently, so each one will be unique still 🙂

Here are the general instructions:

  1. Print the sheet onto cardstock (I use Canon Matte Photo Paper, 170g)
  2. Glue the sheet to thin cardboard, I use a cereal box and spray glue, let dry.
  3. Cut out the individual tags.
  4. (Optional: ink the edges of each tag for a more vintage look)
  5. (Optional: embellish with glitter, gems or Dresden trims)
  6. Punch holes and tie the tags with a piece of ribbon, twine or lace.
  7. TADAH: Cute Victorian Easter Tags 🙂

Easter Boy & Girl

I love the bright spring colors of these Easter Boy & Girl images:

Perfect for Easter cards, or to create Easter Hangers (my favorite Easter decoration) or maybe print multiple in smaller size and create precious Easter tags?

Norwegian Sunday: Bridal Crowns – Part V, Photography

Around the turn of the century, Norwegian photographer Solveig Lund (1868-1943) made a good living photographing bunad wear and bridal attires. She was based in Oslo, and at one point had 3 different studios in Oslo at the same time! I’m sharing some of her work here, again sorted by Bunad-districts:

These images are clickable for you to zoom in and study the details, some of them are quite large:

HARDANGER – PERLEKRUNE (BEADED CROWN)

VOSS – BRIDAL CROWN / LAD


SOGN – SILVER CROWN

SETESDAL – LAD

Her photos were intended for postcards, targeting the tourist market especially. She handcolorized many of her images herself:

Marcus Selmer (1819-1900) also photographed a series of Bunad and Bridal Wear in the years 1862-1866, mostly in his Bergen studio:

Marcus Selmer’s originals were then cut out and mounted on drawn backgrounds. When they were handcolorized, often times the colors were changed from the originals, so these photos does not always give an accurate depiction of the costumes.

I’m including a few printable collage sheets with photographies of Traditional Norwegian Brides:

I have plans for several more posts about Norwegian Bridal Crowns, Bunad traditions and other Norwegian traditions. I’ll be sharing these special posts on Sundays, so stay tuned for more Norwegian Sundays to come 😀 Coming up next Sunday is Bridal Crowns in Film.
