Just a quick post today to share with you a tag I made to go on a present (a set of notelets I made earlier this week) for a friend. I was suddenly inspired to make this tag as I wrapped her present because the paper was just so gorgeous. An idea popped into my head and 15 mins later the tag was done-nice and easy but I had a lot of fun making it. I will have to try this again as I just loved this finishing touch.......I didn't write on the back so she could re-cycle it....and she is going to!!
So this really was a home made present-next time perhaps I should go with making a gift bag or decorating some plain paper. It makes it a real joy giving a present to someone when you have made it all I am sure many of you know!

Here is the tag:

And here it is with the paper that inspired it!

See how gorgeous the paper is and I love how my tag works with it!

I will be entering this into the following challenges:
