Craft Or Print A Victorian Gift Tag

       The Victorian decorative arts refers to the style of decorative applications and design created during the Victorian era, roughly from 1837 to about 1910. Victorian design is widely viewed as having indulged in a grand excess of ornament. The Victorian era is known for its interpretation and eclectic revival of historic styles mixed with the introduction of middle east and Asian influences in furniture, fittings, and interior decoration. The Arts and Crafts movement, the aesthetic movement, Anglo-Japanese style, and Art Nouveau style have their beginnings in the later half of the Victorian era. 
       Many Americans still prefer to decorate their Christmas trees in the fashion of the former Victorians. So, it would follow that there would still be great interest in designing gift wrap, trims, stockings etc... to compliment the Victorian Christmas Theme in the homes of those people who love the Era.

       "I used a Digital collage sheet I designed to make these tags for a challenge my friend Sandi is having on her blog called "Christmas in the Bank 2013" You can read more about it, and find links to the embellishments I used on my blog post.  You can purchase the collage sheet here."

Print this Victorian gift tag for your packages this Christmas for free. 
I cleaned and redrew this graphic in Photoshop for my visitors; 
Merry Christmas!
