How about some tags?

Tags are a GREAT way to use up your scraps from your kits and get some use out of those dusty punches.

For the two outside punches, I gathered some scraps, punches, spray inks and paint (daubers work the best.)

Once I have punched the shape(butterfly) from the paper, I use the negative space as a stencil like so...

Just place the stencil where you want it and dab or brush the paint on. After it had dried, I layered the punched shape over top and stapled it to the tag. Then you can see the painted color through the punched shape. (You can get a closer look if you click on the first picture)

For the Smile tag, I just cut out some of the petals from the BasicGrey paper (March kit), layered them up and added a brad to the flower center.

So use up those leftovers and make some tags then when you need a gift tag in a pinch, you're ready to go!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!
