Tag or book mark...you decide!

   Hey there!  I have another little project to share today that uses my new Two Tags die.  I spent some time this morning playing with and making flowers and wanted to combine the two.  After some trial and error (more error than trial!) I made a couple of flowers that made me pretty happy!  Today's project uses one of them. What do ya think?

This little cutie can be used as a book mark or a tag for a mini album.  I cut two layers and trimmed off around the perforated edge to give it a matted look. I layered my Blushing Bride layer on top of the Chocolate Chip layer.  My sentiment is from Filled With Love. (an oldie, but a goodie!) I added a Rhinestone to the heart because everything looks better with a little sparkle!

I made the flower from 4 punched circles.  I punched them from an old  catalog that was just begging to be re-purposed.  After I punched the circles I folded them in half and then into thirds to form triangles.  I trimmed off pieces from the edges of the triangles and rounded the corners to make  flower petals.  After I unfolded them I crumpled them up and then smoothed them back out.  I sponged them with Rose Red and Chocolate Chip to make them look more Vintage.  I added a hemp tied button to the center for the a finished look using a glue dot.

I am glad that the weekend is here!  I am hoping to get lots of craft-y things accomplished over the next couple of days!  Hope that yours is off to a great start!  Be back soonest!
