My 1st tag! :)

Welcome to Monday, everyone!

So I decided to try my hand at making a decorative tag. I think it's not too bad for a 1st try - LOL

The tag is cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. The flower is made with a strip of paper, 12" x 3/4" and pleated around in a circle. Then you glue the flower to a 1 1/4" circle to give it stability. The grass at the bottom is make with the MS grass edge border punch (gotta LOVE this punch) and the leaves are from a Papershapers Folk Heart punch. The doily behind the flower is a MS Paper Doily and I inked the edge canary yellow and covered the ink with Stickles. The background is embossed with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder :)

I made the stem with a stamp from our new Scrappy Moms Stamps Furry Friends set. I curved the stamp as I put it on the block to make the wave in the stem - cute, huh? That was the 1st time I have ever done this technique but I have seen other do it before and thought it was a great idea. :)
Thank you for visiting me today! I will be doing a new project tomorrow for the Terrific Tuesday Challenge with Scrappy Moms Stamps. Have a wonderful week!
