Happy Birthday

Hi, chicas! How are your days shaping up? My daughter went off to summer school about an hour or so ago, and I've been fighting the urge to go back to sleep ever since! I did a lot of prep work last night for the 5 VBS craft classes that will be held tonight, and I'm sleeepy. LOL, I'm really tempted to go back to bed, but I keep thinking that I'm forgetting something.

Just popping in to share a little birthday tag I created using the July Stamp of the Month set from Clear & Simple Stamps, Circus Fun, and the new color for this month, VIP Purple. I'm not usually a purple person, but I really love this shade, it's not too dark, and it's not too light. Perfect. :)

Have a great one!

  1. Cut kraft tag base, trim upper corners, and punch hole.
  2. Use die to punch several strips of cardstock.
  3. Adhere strips to tag front alternating colors.
  4. Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock, and punch with die cut. Layer onto turquoise die cut and adhere to tag front with pop dots.
  5. Slip ribbon through hole on top of tag.
  6. Create separate bow and attach to ribbon using a button and twine.
