A fun little gift tag

I made this fun gift tag, or you could even make a card out of it.  It's as big as a card seeing I used a WW brown paper card circle as the base, inked the edges in blue and then attached a large manilla tag over it. I got these tags from Staples.  I used them a long time ago for a class I taught.  I stamped the edges of the tag with one of the stamps from my myStamp Box Road Trip set. 

The flower is really easy to create by cutting a strip of pp and cutting into one long side of it about every 1/4 inch...it is like making fringe.  You then attach the non cut side to a small circle base.  The cut edge just curves around the circle perfectly.  I then took my fingers and crumpled up the flower petals a little.

Here is a close up of the flower.  The middle stamps is also from the Road Trip set.  I love how nice it fits on one of my scallop circles I cut with my nestabilities die.

Thanks for taking a look today.  I have got to run, I need to print out my April photos for my Project 12 pages.  Helen and I are scrapping tomorrow and this is what we will be doing.  YAY us!  Yup, we live the life of luxory for sure.
