A tag for your Thursday!

Good morning all!  I hope you're doing well on this Thursday.  Today I have a quick post, a little tag I whipped up for Landry's birthday gift from her big sister, Abie.


This tag was so simple to make.  You know THESE SHEETS that Crate Paper and other manufactures sell?  Crate Paper calls them Accent Cuts, I'm not sure if there is a general name for them or not.  Anyway, when I purchase one of these sheets, I immediately cut them all up, it's distracting to me to leave them in one 12x12 sheet.  I much prefer them to be nicely trimmed and ready to go for projects!  I picked out a little "Accent Cut" and simply layered on an Emma's Shop tab sticker and a couple of punched out butterflies.  See those gems at the top?  They were to cover up a mistake.  Abie couldn't decide if she wanted to sign the front or back of the tag.  The gems are covering up her pen marks :)  I stamped a little sentiment and tied the tag onto the tulle bow on the package.  Man I love tulle!  I think I would use it on everything if I could!
Well, that's it for me on this fine Thursday.  Have a fantastically wonderful day and I'll see you tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping in today my friends!

  1. Gorgeous tag! I love the gems - even if they are covering something up. It's the perfect touch. Great tip - I tend to leave the 12x12 sheet with the paper collection or sheet of paper. But cutting it up so that it's ready for any project is a great idea. I may start doing this! :)
