My beautiful large round tags are made from thick sturdy cardboard, aged in a dye bath then, baked in the oven and inked, to make even more rustic. Decorated with 1950’s Christmas rubber stamps. All topped off with strands of aged jute string to tie or hang

Each of my round tags feature a different design. Reindeer, angels, koalas, platypus, holly, retro family, sleigh, Christmas bells, snowdrops and vintage greetings.

As the wife of a fine chocolatier in France, she knows, too much will falter her figure but she can’t resist the luxurious indulgence of chocolat.
