Fabulous tag

Today I've got a tag to share with you.  At our apartment, our power goes out a lot.  What's a crafter to do without access to her Cricut or Cameo?  Well, I was cleaning out drawers and other assorted nooks and crannies where I've stashed craft things, and ran across some old hand cutting templates- including a couple of tags!  So I went old school and hand cut some tags for later use.  This one is on paper from a Basics stack from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby's store brand).  I punched the bottom part with a Fiskars edge punch.

I was also able to go through my Cricut handbooks to plan out my cut for the tag, and also add the washi tape (Target brand) to the bottom.  Then, when we had power again, I cut this cute dragonfly out of the Paisley cartridge.

I added some True Blue stickles to his wings, and also some Glam Pink to the hearts on his body.  Then I added two heart shaped gems over the stickled hearts (once they dried).  I stamped the sentiment from a Pink Paislee stamp set and popped the dragonfly up on foam squares.

The finishing touch was adding a little bit of black crinkle ribbon to the top of the tag. 

This tag is being entered into the following challenges:
Krafty Girls- Die Cut
All That Stickles- True Blue
Fantabulous Cricut- Cute as a Bug
