You're Beautiful Tag featuring March's Creative Cafe' kit

Hello Rubber Cafe' friends! Mary-Ann here, sharing these super easy tags for you to share with a beautiful friend.

I can imagine these tied to a kraft wrapped gift. So dig out your March Creative Cafe Kit of the Month and lets get started!

Often times, I create my own tags from tag I have on hand.  I just trace it to the color paper I want.  This time, I chose the cream paper included in my kit.  Punched the holes with my Crop-a-dile.    

With the scraps from the tags, I stamped the word "beautiful" along the bottom.  This helped keep my line straight.  To just get the word I wanted, I colored with my marker instead of using a stamp pad.   Here I used Stampin-up, but any type of marker will work.  
This will be added at the bottom of your tag.  I also did the same with the word "you're."

You are seeing everything in duplication here because I am making two, so you create however many you would like.  Next I stamped the frame stamp.  You can see that with my x-acto knife I carefully cut out the center and with scissors fussy cut the frame, backing it with patterned paper.  

To pull it all together I layered paper across the bottom of my tag, stamped and sewed the word "beautiful" at the bottom.  I tied twine around the top, punched a small hole and strung through the frame, and added "you're" tag.  For added depth (I used glue dots to create this look)  add one glue dot to each end of the word strip, pucker the paper a bit before sticking the other end down. 
Finish it up with a flower, a few enamels, and punch a small circle for the top and your tag is complete!
