Flower Tag Fun

It's been a tough couple of months around here, so just keeping up with my two design team duties have kept me busy.   Things are looking up so I wanted to share a cute little tag I made
for my Ladies Craft Night.  

I get together with some very fun friends once a month.  We each come up with a card or project for the others to make.  They are so inspirational.  I always come home feeling creative.

I cut the tag using a die.  Stamped the background with an A-muse background stamp.
Used a Sizzix leaf die.  Punch out one large and two smaller flowers with a Marvy punch and
the flower center with a McGill punch.   Rolled the edges and glued the centers together.  

Hope you like it and come back soon to see more.  Happy Tuesday!!!

Paper Quilt

Today I wanted to share with you my "Paper Quilt" wall hanging I made recently.  Everything is paper except for the crystals, key charm, flowers and buttons.  It is mounted on a cardboard backing and hung up with a ribbon hanger.

It looks so pretty in my craft room.  Glittery when the sun hits it.

  It is made cutting 3 inch circles and folding the edges around a square.  Use double - sided card stock or insert a square of card stock inside of a different pattern.  Glue together on either a piece of solid card stock or mat board.  Decorate as you wish!

Hope you enjoy and make one for yourself.   

Happy Crafting!!!
