This tag is one I made on a 'make and take' at the craft trade show with a lovely lady called Clare Charvill who makes beautiful things with Graphic 45 papers. I like most of their papers but can't bring myself to cut them up because they're so nice. Clare showed us some ideas to use them making lovely tags and albums without wasting anything so we got best value from them.
The papers used here are from the Couture collection. They are double sided, I used stripes on the front and hats on the back. The Ooh La La panel is from a page of several different toppers as is the bauble shape at the top. The whole collection tones together perfectly so whichever papers you use they look good.
We added lots of buttons which made me think of the HOC challenge, together with a vintage shoe I thought this was just right. If you live in South Norfolk you might like to know that Sparkle and Flair in Harleston have a biscuit tin full (well not quite so full now!) of old buttons for sale and Aldridge Crafts in Attleborough have Graphic 45 paper pads on order, due any day soon.
Please pop over to House Of Cards and take a look at the DT samples, then come and join us with your creation.
