Set Of Three All Occasion Tags

We all have been in a situation when we needed and all-occasion card but the ones in the shops were… just not what we liked. So, in the name of real crafting dedication, why not make your own cards? Or even better, why not break the rules and make a tag instead of a card?! 

Tracy Dickson talks us through making a set of all-occasion tags, full of bright colours perfect for spring!

Cut time cards into a tag shape and punch a hole.

Tear some pieces of Canvas Corp Black and Ivory French Script and color it with Tattered Angels High Impact Paint in Navy, Turquoise and Light Pink.
